University of East London has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
We are making swift strides towards our aim of becoming London’s No 1 university for sport. This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Sport and Exercise Science but you don’t meet the standard entry requirements.
First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.
On the BSc course you’ll be examining the role that biomechanics, physiology, psychology and nutrition play in human performance. You’ll also look at how these disciplines interact, so you receive the complete education a multi-disciplinary sports scientist needs.
