This programme enables the multidisciplinary study of sport and exercise science at a higher level.

You will have the opportunity to study in all major disciplines of sports science, as well as an introduction to research and laboratory skills, and a research project in your final year.
Your learning will include lectures, seminars, online activities, workshops, practical tasks, laboratory skills, peer-group learning and independent study.
Our subject specialist staff will deliver highly engaging and interactive, practical and theory sessions in line with their personal expertise and research activities.
Attention is paid to developing generic learning and academic skills required for success in higher education, particularly encouraging you to become an independent and self-motivated learner in order to maximise your full potential.
