You will be invited to attend guest lectures from industry professionals, local employers and world- leading researchers from external institutions. The lower student-staff ratio also allows you to benefit from additional lecturer support that cannot always be found at other educational providers.

Our apparatus includes force platforms, Dartfish software, timing gates and blood lactate analysis equipment. This will provide you with unique and sought-after employability skills that are desirable within the industry.

There are many progression routes, these include opportunities to achieve a full BSc Hons degree at the University of Bedfordshire, and careers in teaching in the primary, secondary, further and higher education sectors. This course also enables students to pursue employment within specialist areas, such as sports science support, PE teaching, strength and conditioning, sports and physical activity coaching, physiotherapy, sports therapy, and clinical and performance psychology.
