Course summary

In an increasingly health conscious world, where sport scientists and performance consultants are ever more in demand, this course provides an invaluable advantage as it specialises in teaching you the skills that ensure competency when working in the field following graduation. Appealing to those with an enthusiasm for sport, physical activity and human science, the course teaches you how sporting performance can be improved to ensure individuals achieve their personal potential, by drawing together the study of physiology, psychology and biomechanics within a sport and exercise context.You’ll have the opportunity to work with professional sports clubs and athletes. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake work experience or research opportunities abroad via the Erasmus project or ISEP student exchange programme. We have links through ISEP with universities in the United States, Canada and Spain, offering the opportunity for students to live and study abroad and learn about other cultures. Careers such as sport scientists and performance consultants are popular choices for graduates, while some continue into research and teaching. Our graduates have been employed in leisure companies, health and fitness clubs, hotels, outdoor pursuits centres, retail and commercial organisations, local authorities, FE and HE institutions, schools, the NHS, sports governing bodies, Sport England, charitable trusts, sports clubs, and the armed services and police.
