Sport & Exercise Science Foundation Degree

This two year course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to develop both vocational skills and academic knowledge simultaneously. You will learn about the scientific basis of sport and exercise science and how performance can be enhanced through understanding of scientific principles.

The content of this programme is varied and incorporates many facets of sport science. It provides an introduction to sport and exercise sciences where you learn about human anatomy, sport psychology and simple biomechanics. These foundations are later developed with further study where more detailed exploration of theory is covered. Additionally, you will develop skills in research which are vital for further study.

Tuition Fee for 2019/20 £6165 (per year)
