Applied Sport Science involves the application of scientific principles to the promotion, maintenance and enhancement of sport- and exercise-related behaviours. Our programme is centred on four key disciplines: physiology, biomechanics, psychology, and skill acquisition.
Some graduates enter sport-related careers; for example working for agencies such as national sporting bodies, local authorities, the health and fitness industry and media companies. Graduates also enter health-related careers, for example NHS-funded exercise and health initiatives. Others gain graduate entry in management and business or begin postgraduate training for careers in teaching or vocations such as physiotherapy and sports nutrition.
