O melhor curso na melhor universidade para você

Preparing you for a variety of graduate level careers in industry, professional sport, health and education, this degree aims to provide you with a strong scientific understanding of human physiology, psychology, anatomy, biomechanics and biochemistry. Based in the state-of-the-art Alison Gingell Building, you can take full advantage of our cutting-edge facilities, including indoor running track and extensive exercise science laboratories. Youâ??ll be taught by staff with a broad range of academic and professional experience, many of whom have worked with a range of health initiatives, professional athletes and clubs. We also work closely with a range of National Health Service (NHS) clinical services, such as cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation and local authority healthy living initiatives. Our?strong employer links include local professional sports teams and National Health Service (NHS) clinical services, such as cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation and local authority healthy living initiatives, which increases your employment opportunities. We recognise that to be an effective sport and exercise scientist, you first need to be an effective communicator. Alongside an appreciation of the physiological, psychological and biomechanical factors influencing human performance, our course will help you develop effective listening, verbal and non-verbal communications skills through first-hand experience of situations directly related to applied sport and exercise science. This is a hands-on course with a range of approaches to teaching including problem-based learning, case studies and laboratory classes, which blend scientific rigour with practical and professional experience and knowledge. We aim to develop your expertise and practical ability to prescribe exercise programmes, then evaluate and monitor their effectiveness on the human body.
