What will I learn?

In this course, you’ll develop as an interdisciplinary sport and exercise scientist who understands that athletic success is not based on any single factor – and that will equip you to create strategies that work. Physiology, biomechanics, psychology and nutrition – you’ll cover it all. You’ll also have the opportunity to gain coaching awards and fitness qualifications by taking vocational training courses.

Sports and Exercise Science uses scientific principles and techniques to enable people, from Premier League footballers to those using the gym once a week, to perform to their optimum performance level.

This course opens up many careers, from coaching and personal training to going into teacher training. You could also work on exercise referral programmes within clinical environments, rehabilitation programmes, corporate fitness initiatives or human science research.

At LSBU, we want to set you up for a successful career. During your studies – and for two years after you graduate – you’ll have access to our Employability Service, which includes: An online board where you can see a wide range of placements: part-time, full-time or voluntary. You can also drop in to see our Job Shop advisers, who are always available to help you take the next step in your search; our Careers Gym offering group workshops on CVs, interview techniques and finding work experience, as well as regular presentations from employers across a range of sectors.
