Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences, our generic programme, is the most popular choice for prospective and current students, largely because of the flexibility that it affords: after a generic first year, you are free to choose from the diverse range of study blocks on offer in your second and third years, which means that you can play to both your strengths and your preferences – tailoring your degree programme to suit you. For example, if you were to see yourself embarking on a career as a specialist youth coach, working as part of a multidisciplinary team comprising biomechanists and psychologists, then you may consider selecting the following study blocks: Physical Literacy and Child Development, Applying Sport Sciences to Practice: Coaching and Teaching Effectiveness, Biomechanics of Human Movement, and Theory and Application in Sport Psychology – a very useful combination.

Graduates from this programme have gone on to work in settings as diverse as professional sport (e.g., British Rowing) the NHS (e.g. as a Clinical Respiratory Physiologist), sport charities (e.g., Access Sport) – and as management trainees in global companies (e.g., Enterprise Car Rental).
