Study and be part of a world-leading research team, focussing on scientific study of sport and exercise performance, in labs offering you research opportunities and skills development rare to the UK. First gaining a broad knowledge of the core scientific areas of sport and exercise science, you’ll use discipline leading equipment including online gas analysis machines, an environmental chamber, light gates and echocardiography, amongst others, to build your knowledge of scientific theory relating to sport and exercise performance. The theory and skills learnt culminate in the completion of your own research project in your final year.
Bachelor of Science (with Honours) - BSc (Hons)
At Level 1, you will undertake core units that are designed to provide a broad knowledge of the core scientific areas of sport, health and exercise science. You will be given the opportunity to apply this knowledge within a laboratory and field setting utilising world leading facilities and equipment. At Level 2, you will delve deeper into the core scientific areas of sport, health and exercise science. You will utilise world-leading equipment and facilities both within a field setting and a laboratory. Furthermore, you will benefit from specific industry proven guidance on employability skills. At Level 3, your expertise (theory and practical) within a specific facet of one of the core areas of sport and exercise science will be demonstrated by the completion of an independent research project. Such a project may utilise online gas analysis machines, a high specification environmental chamber, timing gates, echocardiography.
A wide variety of strategies and activities are used to assess the specific unit learning outcomes and to allow all students opportunities to demonstrate their personal strengths across different assessment types.
Types of assessment include: essay, case study, literature review, lab report, data exercise, dissertation, project, portfolio, presentation, poster, practical, test and exams.
