Sport and Exercise

This course is designed to prepare students for playing a leading role in the growth areas of sport and exercise; it stresses the relationship between theory and its professional application, and aims to develop knowledge, skills and expertise in a range of sport and exercise disciplines; students are encouraged to develop their own programme of study by selecting modules which have particular relevance to professional, academic and personal goals.
