Working under expert coaches and with professional teams and athletes, this degree enables you to combine your training with science to understand high-performance sport. You’ll learn how to understand and analyse the relationships between fatigue, adaptation, performance and injury, how to acquire meaning performance data, and how to work within the culture of a high performance industry. A key focus for this programme is boosting your employability for a career in the industry. A dedicated work placement module is available as part of the programme and provides a number of free, industry-related continuing professional development workshops.
The course is underpinned by strong relationships with a wide variety of professional and semi-professional clubs in the region. You’ll learn from tutors who’ve collaborated with the likes of FIFA, the International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency. You will also benefit from facilities such as our Sports Rehabilitation Suite, Health and Human Performance Laboratory, Environmental Chamber, Performance Analysis Suite, and Exercise Physiology Laboratories. These are on top of our excellent indoor and outdoor sports facilities, which are currently undergoing a £16 million transformation.
