University of Exeter has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Our BSc Exercise and Sport Sciences programme enjoys an international reputation for excellence. The programme is designed to provide you with a balanced understanding of both sport and exercise sciences across a range of sub-disciplines. During the degree you will develop your knowledge of physiology, biomechanics, and psychology. You will also develop a comprehensive understanding of the scientific principles underlying sport and exercise performance and participation.
The degree structure allows you to specialise in a particular area or to follow a broader-based programme. Modules are underpinned by the research excellence and applied expertise of our staff, allowing current cutting-edge material to be shared with you. Optional modules reflect the application of scientific knowledge in a variety of populations, such as athletes, children, and the general public.
Whatever path you wish to follow after graduation, we aim to support you so that you are best placed to succeed. We promote the development of employability skills through modules in leadership and business (run by the Business School), law for non-lawyers (delivered by the Law School), physical education, and employability/career development.
