Sport Science provides the opportunity for students to follow a highly specific and scientific sport programme that focuses on the disciplines of sport psychology, sport physiology, sport biomechanics, motor learning, and research methods. Students are provided with the knowledge base to critically evaluate and engage with contemporary research related to sports performance that is used to develop an evidence-based approach to practice. In addition, students develop the necessary skills to actively initiate and conduct scientific projects linked to individuals, teams, and agencies from across the wider spectrum of the sports performance world. Graduates from this programme will be well placed to train to become accredited sport and exercise scientists (biomechanics, physiology, and psychology), sports coaches, researchers, work for sporting national governing bodies, the fitness industry and private practice.
