Sport and Exercise Science

Our flexible course means that students work in their specific interest area from day 1, focusing their learning and research to become a specialist on their chosen theme. Students use a range of advanced techniques throughout all of their 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, students critically consider their long-term career goals and plan for their future. Students develop their 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.
