Develop your knowledge of biomechanics, physiology and psychology. You’ll understand how humans function in sport, physical activity and health environments. In this degree, you’ll focus on the study of biomechanics, physiology and psychology. You’ll apply your knowledge of these subjects to sports performance and exercise participation. You will understand the relevance of sport and exercise science to current practice. The course ensures that you will develop a broad skill set. The first year will introduce you to basic science, sport and exercise science disciplines. You will also learn about research methods and techniques. Your second year will advance your study of these disciplines and further your skills. The final undergraduate year will allow you to specialise with your chosen discipline. You will also undertake your own research project. The undergraduate masters (MSci) equips you with the practical and analytical skills to conduct independent research.
