ABOUT THE COURSE
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in elite sport? How do you prepare athletes for competition? How do you improve their performance through training, diet and psychological intervention? How do you help them to recover from injury?
If you want to know the answers to these questions, Sport and Exercise Sciences is an ideal subject for you. We offer a broad-based course that will give you the opportunity to explore a range of sports science disciplines, including anatomy, physiology, psychology, nutrition, biomechanics and fitness training.
The emphasis throughout this course will be on developing your theoretical knowledge of the body, and practical skills in assessing and developing the performance of others.
WHAT WE ADD
The skills you develop on the course will fully prepare you for study at university and working with elite athletes. Whilst on the course, you will have the opportunity to provide sport science support for local sports teams, and undertake additional qualifications, including sports leaders and fitness instructor qualifications. Access to our own new gym facilities, trips to universities, and interaction with guest speakers from industry will give you an excellent insight into working with and supporting athletes.
HOW CAN I STANDOUT WITH SPORT AND EXERCISE SCIENCES?
Many of our students go on to further study at university, undertaking a wide range of courses including: physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, nutrition, psychology, paramedic science or sport and exercise sciences.
