Sport Science BSc(Hons): Facilities

More about our modern teaching environment

There is a wide range of facilities for practical work at our Penrhyn Road campus, where this course is based. You will have access to a modern environment with the latest equipment.

Exercise physiology lab facilities

We have a number of ergometers (eg treadmill, cycle, rowing kayak) for analysing sports-specific performance. Sophisticated equipment allows us to measure the physiological responses to exercise, such as.

  • oxygen consumption;
  • fat oxidation;
  • heart rate;
  • blood pressure; and
  • haematological responses.

Practical work helps you develop your understanding of exercise physiology and your practical skills. The high specification equipment ensures a high quality of research and allows staff to provide support services to top-class athletes from a range of sports.

Biomechanics lab facilities

A large laboratory provides space for teaching, research and consultancy activities. We can sophisticatedly analyse sports movements and skills thanks to:

  • force platforms fitted in the floor;
  • a six-camera motion analysis system;
  • an isokinetic dynamometer; and
  • electromyography.

Two smaller labs provide space for specific activities, such as gait analysis, assessment of muscle function and data analysis.

These laboratories and staff are accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES). Staff also undertake consultancy services, giving you the chance to observe world-class athletes undergoing sport science laboratory assessment.

The Learning Resources Centre offers:

  • subject libraries, plus a free inter-library loan scheme to other libraries in the Greater London area;
  • online database subscriptions; and
  • a growing selection of resource materials.
