Course content

If you’re passionate about sport and exercise science and want to have an impact and improve performance for future generations, the research skills you’ll develop on our course will prepare you for a rewarding career.

Our flexible course means that you'll work in your specific interest area from day one, focusing your learning and research to become a specialist on your chosen theme.

You'll use a range of advanced techniques throughout all of your modules, including creating online tools, practical experiments, auditing and planning to create and analyse real-world data.

Continually engaging with contemporary and future issues within sport and exercise science, including legal and ethical problem-solving, you'll critically consider your long-term career goals and plan for your future.

You'll develop your practical skills by using our specialist equipment, which includes 3D motion analysis system, breath-by-breath oxygen kinetics, near Infra-red spectroscopy, GPS in-match/motion tracking software, eye tracking glasses, force plates, thoracic impedance, and blood chemistry.

Because some of our module content is delivered online, you'll have more time to either continue working in the field of sport and exercise science or take advantage of the internships and industry connections we have to increase your skills while you study. You'll also have the opportunity to start working towards a professional accreditation with organisations such as the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES).

Depending on your research focus you could enter a career in clinical- biomechanics, exercise physiology, teaching, advanced sports coaching, sports science support, sports consultancy, the NHS or further academic study. You’re in the perfect position to continue your academic career and move up to our Sport and Exercise Sciences PhD.

Our sport and exercise science laboratories contain industry-standard equipment including 3D motion capture suite, high speed treadmills, metabolic carts for the assessment of cardiorespiratory responses, force plates, hydrostatic weighing tank for assessing body composition, full haematology suite, an array of cycle and rowing ergometers, GPS systems for field work and eye-tracking glasses. You’ll also have access at any time to a wide range of sports science software packages.
