Overview

BSc (Hons) Applied Sport Science scored 95% overall satisfaction for NSS 2019.
Accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), this degree is founded upon the underlying principles of physiology, psychology and biomechanics. The course combines these scientific principles with highly practical skills, helping to prepare students for a career in the sport science industry.

Modules and assessments have been created to develop key employability skills such as communicating scientific results; teaching and developing specific skills with athletes; and planning, organising and conducting research projects. To complement their degree studies, students are encouraged to prepare for BASES and UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) professional accreditation.

To help prepare students for a career in the sports industry, a hands-on approach is encouraged. Through professional placements and applied practice students gain first-hand experience of working with teams and athletes in a high-performance environment. With support and mentoring from the course team, past students have provided sport science support to Premiership rugby and football players, Olympic athletes, and national teams.
