Sport and Exercise Science BSc (Full-time)London Metropolitan University
Sport and Exercise Science BA (Full-time)
Sport and exercise sciences involve the provision of support services to elite athlete, public health and fitness, as well as special populations such as the elderly and hospital patients. This course has substantial components of physiology, anatomy, metabolism and biomechanics, with coverage of sports psychology and sports sociology. In a growing industry with excellent and diverse employment opportunities, graduates can find roles in the fitness industry, coaching, sports therapy, exercise physiology, health promotion and teaching.
We've been ranked among the top 50 UK universities – and best in central London – for sports science in the The Guardian's 2019 university league tables.
Mass sports participation and general exercise are rapidly developing occupations supported by an increasingly specialist industry specialising in testing and exercise prescription. The British Association of Sport and Exercise Science (BASES) defines sport and exercise science as: "The application of scientific principles to the promotion, maintenance and enhancement of sport and exercise related behaviours."
In this degree you’ll explore a wide curriculum with exercise physiology, biomechanics, psychology and sociology the core areas of focus. You’ll study the short and long term changes the body experiences after physical activity, environmental stress and exercise; the biomechanics of human movement, including the interaction between the athlete and the equipment they use; and motivation and group dynamics in exercise. You’ll also develop the skills to identify the optimal techniques to boost sporting performance and analyse movement to reduce risk of injury.
In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:
- two A levels with minimum grades BB including biology, PE, human biology, sports science or sports studies (or 80 or more UCAS points from an equivalent qualification)
- English Language and Mathematics GCSEs at grade C/grade 4 or above (or equivalent)
If you don't have traditional qualifications or can't meet the entry requirements for this undergraduate degree, you may still be able to gain entry by completing our Sport and Exercise Science (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree.
Entry from appropriate foundation and access courses will also be considered.
