Where science meets sporting excellence

This innovative degree, taught by our Medical Sciences Faculty, brings together:

  • anatomy
  • physiology
  • biomechanics
  • psychology
  • biochemistry
  • nutrition

You'll work with academics, practitioners, elite athletes and industry partners to develop practical knowledge and skills in sport and exercise science.

Your studies will be supported by our state-of-the-art sport lab facilities, opening later this year, and there'll be plenty of opportunity to get involved in research.

You can also participate in research trials, gaining valuable insight for when you design and conduct your own research project in your third year.
