Course summary

Our extended sports science degree gives you a wide knowledge of the subject and has an extra year to prepare you for degree-level study. You’ll need lower entry points than for our three-year course.

Our extended degree in sports science will develop your knowledge of sports physiology, biomechanics, nutrition and psychology, and performance analysis. Using advanced sports science equipment, you'll explore these areas in the lab and through the study of a sport or health-related exercise of your choice.

The degree begins with a foundation year to build up your study skills for subsequent years. You'll then follow the same curriculum offered on our three-year course.

You'll put your new skills and knowledge into practice through work experience. Among the opportunities available across the sport and exercise science industry are placements at Charlton Athletic Football Club.

Careers and placements

Will I have a work placement?

We have a wide range of placement opportunities across professional clubs. These range in length from 3 months to the duration of your course, which could be 3 years. You will gain experience in a professional working environment which will enhance your skills and employability.

Placements will not be paid but they are invaluable for your learning and enable to build up your own contacts in the industry.

How long is my placement?

Students can undertake a summer placement for between 6 weeks and 3 months which can be related to a credit rated course at Level 6, or can be undertaken for work experience, acknowledged by a Certificate of Industrial Experience.

Students are also encouraged to apply for sandwich placements lasting between 9-12 months which sit between the second and third year of the degree.
