Course overview

Within the sports world everything is driven by results. No major team nowadays is complete without a sports scientist in their support staff. Sports Science is the study of scientific principles and techniques with the aim of improving athletic performance. The key disciplines that inform this process are physiology, psychology, biomechanics and nutrition.

There are many reasons to study Sports Science. You might excel at one sport, or have a keen interest in sport in general. Perhaps you enjoy science and are looking for a more applied course that will lead to an interesting career.

This exciting and challenging course will take you on a journey through the field of Sports Science developing both your theoretical and applied practical skills. Therefore you will be given the opportunity to learn and apply skills related to athlete testing and support. Key scientific principles relating to Sports Science will also be addressed. All of these will be studied in the context of athlete support both for elite and non-elite individuals and teams.
