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 Sport and Exercise Science MSci 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.

On this Sport and Exercise Science MSci degree, you'll learn via a blend of lectures, seminars, laboratory practicals, workshops, case studies, group assignments and independent study. Each module typically involves one lecture per week, followed up (where appropriate), with lab classes, discussion groups and tutorials. This means that a typical week on this degree will contain six lectures, two or three practicals or seminars, advertised time for tutorials with module leaders / personal tutors and protected time for independent study. Your independent study time is expected to involve reading scientific research, writing essays and reports, practicing vocational competencies, gathering information and data, working on group projects and preparing verbal and poster presentations. These activities form the basis of authentic assessment opportunities to help you prepare for future employment e.g., practical examinations, presentations, case studies, written reports and critiques of research.
Our approach allows our students have close contact with lecturers and tutors, and all our students have access to regular one-to-one meetings with staff.
