Sport science

Our hands-on course studies the science that underpins sports participation and how the body's performance can be improved, using our state-of-the-art sports laboratories.

This course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and you'll gain the CIMSPA Coaching Assistant qualification after successfully completing your first year.

Our facilities

Our modern nutrition kitchen is a dedicated space that has been designed to the latest specifications. It is a flexible and inviting teaching space which we use for food science practicals, research projects and student nutrition society events along with small group teaching (e.g. assignment and revision tutorials) and personal tutor meetings.

Our exercise physiology laboratory has sophisticated equipment that allows us to measure the physiological responses to exercise, such as: oxygen consumption, fat oxidation, heart rate, blood pressure and haematological responses, along with facilities to assess these in alternate environmental conditions through use of our altitude and heat chambers.

We have a number of ergometers (e.g. treadmill, cycle, rowing kayak) for analysing sports-specific performance.
