Course summary

The course has a strong emphasis on practical learning. Our specialist exercise physiology and biomechanics laboratories will give you experience of using the latest equipment and analysis techniques. You will gain a comprehensive knowledge of the biomechanical analysis of human movement and sporting activity. You will learn how to apply this knowledge to improve sports performance and reduce the risk of injury. You will also study human behaviour in the exercise environment. You'll look at the relationship between exercise and health and wellbeing, and how exercise could improve mental health. You will investigate how applied sport psychology can enhance sport training and performance. You'll learn how to evaluate and make informed judgements about the psychological factors that affect sports performance. Coursework is designed to be achieved within the set amount of learning hours for each module and is appropriate to the level of study. We encourage a professional work ethic, which includes how to manage your time. A range of additional support is available to students who require it via the Academic Support Centre and personal tutors.

Our courses are carefully constructed to allow you to build knowledge and skills progressively during your degree programme. We constantly update our curriculum to ensure that it covers the latest developments in your subject area, including the research and professional experience that your tutors bring to the course. Our course teams also draw on the wealth of experience provided by our professional contacts and highly successful alumni who feed into the design of our courses and provide master classes and workshops to enrich your learning. You will graduate with specific skills and knowledge related to sport and exercise, as well as useful interpersonal and transferable skills. Employment opportunities include sport-, recreation- and health-related fitness roles in the private and public sectors, along with sport management and development. There are increasing opportunities for sport scientists to work with athletes or conduct research, and many of our graduates pursue careers in education. If you would like to study one of our science degrees at Kingston University but are not yet ready to join the first year of a BSc (Hons) course, you can include an extra foundation year within your chosen degree.
