The programme explores the science used to help the body perform to its full potential. It offers more than most sports science degrees because you learn about science purely in its relationship to exercise and sport. Study physiology, biomechanics, and sports psychology but also take a very practical approach to the application of science to sport.
Students will learn how to carry out a wide range of procedures and use equipment involved in exercise physiology, biomechanics, sports psychology, injury rehabilitation and coaching.
The practical nature of this programme also encourages the development of skills necessary for all graduates to perform efficiently in the work environment.
Full-fledged campus with well-equipped sport science laboratory.
