      In Depth

      What will I study?

      Year 1 gives you a solid grounding in the disciplines relating to sport and exercise science. It will develop fundamental knowledge and skills in subject areas such as physiology and nutrition, biomechanics, psychology, high performance sport, as well as physical activity, exercise and health.

      Year 2 provides further applied knowledge in the cognate disciplines of sport and exercise science, including physiology, biomechanics and psychology, together with studying research methods in sport and exercise science. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to focus on training methods for high performance sport, the scientific principles of exercise and health, or nutrition.

      Specialist optional modules are available in Year 3 when you will also complete an independent research dissertation and undertake a professional practice placement. Emphasis is placed on applying the theoretical understanding of contemporary issues in sport and exercise science to real-life situations.

      How will I study?

      The degree takes a hands-on approach, with practical experience in our purpose-built and well-equipped biomechanics, physiology and psychology laboratories. You will also have lectures, small group seminars, tutorials, workshops, taught practical sessions and ICT based learning. For each module you will have a detailed booklet that tells you what sessions are about, what to read, how you will be assessed and coursework guidance.

      In the final year of your degree you will be provided with the opportunity to gain experience of professional practice in sport and exercise science. This will be in an applied sport and exercise setting directly related to your chosen interests.

      How will I be assessed?

      You will be assessed through essays, projects and lab reports, critical analysis of papers, poster presentations, oral presentations, delivering practical workshop sessions and independent research. We use formal written examinations from time to time but they never account for more than 50% of the marks for any module.

      Who will be teaching me?

      The Sport & Exercise Science team are highly experienced and enthusiastic with a real commitment to teaching sport and exercise sciences. Dynamic, friendly and supportive of your individual needs, staff are also actively involved in research and consultancy projects that influence the development of sport and exercise science and which directly feed into your degree.


      The Department of Sport and Physical Activity places a strong emphasis on practical work underpinned by outstanding facilities. There are dedicated laboratories in performance analysis, biomechanics, physiology, psychology, musculoskeletal, biochemistry, vision analysis, sleep, exercise and performance, and functional rehabilitation, as well as a sports therapy clinic.

      Extensive use is also made of the on-campus leisure facilities which include top-of-the-range 3G football and rugby pitches, hockey pitches, tennis courts, competition-standard athletics track and an athletics field. Our sports centre boasts a 25-metre swimming pool, double sports hall for badminton, basketball, netball and squash, a 100-station fitness suite, aerobics studio and a health suite with sauna and steam rooms.

      Learning Resources

      The biochemistry laboratory enables you to collect and accurately analyse a wide range of metabolites, using the latest technology, to determine the physiological responses of athletes and others, to a variety of exercise stresses such as running, cycling and rowing.

      Additional learning resources include high quality eye-tracking systems in a specialist vision analysis laboratory where you can measure hand-eye coordination, ocular-motor control, reaction times, cognition and other mechanisms associated with visual perception.

      Musculoskeletal assessment tools combine with a dedicated strength and conditioning area in our MSk laboratory, while in the Sleep, Exercise and Performance laboratory you can measure the responses of individuals to sleep, sleep deprivation and changes in the circadian rhythms of a variety of biological processes.


      Timetables for your first week are normally available at the end of August prior to enrolment in September. You can expect to receive your timetable for the rest of the academic year during your first week. Please note that while we make every effort to ensure that timetables are as student-friendly as possible, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week. Wednesday afternoons are normally reserved for sports and cultural activities.


      Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information, however our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may necessitate alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses.

      Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies, revisions to subject benchmarks statements, to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
