Subject

Sport and exercise sciences

Benefit from industry-standard technology as you explore all aspects of human performance through sport and exercise. Study in a professional sports club-style environment, with opportunities to work with athletes as part of our Sports Academies. Benefit from outstanding facilities and connections with major clubs and governing bodies. Sport, health and exercise science is an exciting and expanding industry.

You’ll learn from lecturers who are also industry professionals, developing your skills in managing athlete health, fitness, strength and power levels to maximise potential. You’ll have opportunities to gain industry experience alongside your studies, for example, helping tackle obesity as part of the Hartlinx project or completing your ISAK training to better understand essential areas of sport and exercise sciences. As a graduate you could expect to gain employment in professional or amateur sport, as well as with the NHS or in private healthcare, as an analyst, exercise physiologist or health and lifestyle adviser.

Modules

This course is firmly rooted in practice, you will study practice-based modules to develop a range of practical skills. In the early stages of your studies, you will work in a closely supervised environment on the campus in small groups, progressing to working more autonomously in more challenging environments that may include practice experience away from the campus. Practice experience is already a strong feature of many courses at Hartpury, so you will benefit from well-established practice placement networks. Students on the programme will also benefit from having an Elite Sports Academy on site which offers you the chance of working within a professional environment that is based at Hartpury. You will study a range of subjects, with optional modules allowing you to tailor your degree to your own interests. Year 1 modules include Introduction to Exercise Physiology, Skill Acquisition, Introduction to Exercise Psychology and Introduction to Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics.
