Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science degree includes a number of pathways for you to specialise in; Sport and Exercise Science; Strength and Conditioning; Nutrition; Physical Activity and Health.The BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science programme establishes a contextualised understanding of the application of science (medicine, physical sciences and psychology) to sport performance and the optimisation of exercise participation. The programme identifies key strategies and techniques for optimising sports performance and maximising the benefits of exercise and is endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES; BUES).The BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science is a multi-disciplinary programme and the core curriculum draws from the academic sub-disciplines physiology, psychology and biomechanics that underpin sport and exercise science academically and in applied practice.The University’s partner links with professional sports clubs, as well as elite and community sports programmes and athletes in Plymouth and beyond, provides numerous opportunities to develop students’ sport and exercise science knowledge in an applied setting.The degree prepares students to work not only as a sport and exercise scientist but also in a range of roles related to the degree including the exercise and fitness industry, health provision, supporting the coach and coaching process, teaching, research and rehabilitation.The sport and exercise science facilities enable students to develop and apply their knowledge in both a laboratory and field based setting. Their learning is supported with academic staff who hold both academic and professional practice qualifications and who continue to work in the sector as practitioners.The inclusion of specialist pathways (strength and conditioning, physical activity and health and nutrition) reflects the recognition to ensure the provision captures both the ‘sport’ aspect of programme (for example athlete performance, officiating and coaching and the impact of sport on the nation) and the ‘exercise’ component (positive and preventative impact of exercise on a wide ranging array of physical and mental health conditions).
