The BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science course focuses on the science behind high performance sport – physiology, psychology, biomechanics, nutrition, strength and conditioning – underpinned by the application of chemistry, biology and physics.
During the course, you will develop and combine your sport and exercise knowledge together with lab-based and practical tuition and assessments which are designed to allow you to develop up-to-date practical skills and best practice.
Sport and exercise science helps athletes to perform at the highest levels and pushes the bounds of physical achievement to new levels. Sport science contains three broad elements – biomechanics (understanding we move and interact with equipment), physiology (how we respond to physical exercise) and sport psychology (how we behave in the context of sport and exercise). In this course, you will develop knowledge, skills and expertise in all these aspects of sport performance.
The UWS School of Science & Sport has an enthusiastic and committed staff team that provides a supportive learning environment and a flexible approach to study. Sport & Exercise Science will be offered at our state-of-the-art Lanarkshire Campus from September 2018.
