Why study Sport and Exercise Science with Foundation Year?
Sport and Exercise Science is a great choice if you want to focus your studies on the relationship between exercise and the human body. It involves exploring the body at a cellular level and analysing the impact of sport and exercise on the body as a whole.
On our applied Sport and Exercise Science course you'll explore sports performance and the factors that affect behaviour in sport. You'll gain a solid understanding of the science behind sport and exercise while developing practical skills in our dedicated labs. Key areas that you'll study include biomechanics, physiology, psychology and sociology.
During the foundation year, you'll develop a grounding in scientific principles, practical skills and the application of science to sport and exercise. You'll learn in a highly supportive environment where you can develop your self-confidence, knowledge and skills.
We offer excellent resources in our dedicated labs, so you can carry out research and apply yourself using specialist equipment including: eye-tracker technology; brain imaging equipment (EEG); reaction timers; gas analysis systems; cardiac screening equipment; 3D imaging; isokinetic and balance dynamometry; sprint timing systems and other sport/exercise related equipment (treadmills and weights, for example).
