About this program

BSc Sport and Exercise Science

Elite athletes are taking an increasingly scientific approach in search of precious marginal gains. Recreational exercisers and patients living with disease are turning to science via apps and biotech devices to monitor their training, recovery, health and well-being. This modern, hands-on, research-led degree will equip you with a critical understanding of the science of human function, providing the skills and experience needed to develop innovative psychological and physiological interventions to promote sport performance, exercise and health.

From the marginal gains philosophy of elite sport to the increasing number of bioapps and fitness trackers that pervade the health and lifestyle domain, it is clear that the sport and exercise science sector is booming. The Sport and Exercise Science degree at Bangor University will bring the science underpinning such innovations to life.
