As well as our excellent range of undergraduate degree programmes, we also offer the chance to complete in postgraduate research at MPhil and PhD level.
All of our courses have been developed with your employability in mind, and where possible, include the option to undertake work placements as part of your studies.
Not only will you gain knowledge and skills in your chosen subject area, but you will also develop a set of transferrable skills that will help you stand out in the jobs market, and make you a valuable asset to any employer.
Our School has a strong research, and this is reflected in the broad range of themes we cover, from biomolecular science to ecology, culture and landscapes, and sport.
We are also home to the University’s Centre for Sport, Physical Education and Activity Research (SPEAR), which undertakes a rich diversity of research from internationally-recognised Olympic and Paralympic projects to research into physical education, physical activity and sport in schools and the community.
All of our research feeds directly into our teaching, ensuring that our courses are relevant and applied in nature, reflecting the latest developments in the field.
