University Of Chichester Sport

BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science

Our British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) endorsed Sport and Exercise Science programme is built on strong foundations as we were one of the first institutions in the UK to develop a sports related degree programme.

You can choose to specialise in Sport Performance & Physical Activity for Health. The aims of the programme are to develop sports science graduates who have the scientific theory and practical skills required to work as sport scientists, supporting individuals or teams towards peak performance; or to work as health and exercise professionals within exercise referral schemes or other community programmes for promoting an active lifestyle.

Course content

The courses at Chichester are taught by well qualified staff and further enhanced by a strong research and consultancy profile with many staff having achieved professional accreditation from BASES.

The establishment of UK Sport and National/Regional Centres of Excellence and the Department of Health’s National Support Teams means that there is a growing demand for well-qualified sport and exercise scientists.

BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science (Sport Performance)

Our Sport Performance themed pathway provides you with the skills and knowledge required to assess critically the physiological, biomechanical and psychological characteristics of the athlete and to apply these skills to performance enhancement. We have a strong tradition of applied sports science delivery and this transfers to our hands-on laboratory-based course. Career opportunities within these sectors are rapidly on the increase as we move towards the Rio Olympic Games in 2016.

BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science (Physical Activity for Health)

Our Physical Activity for Health themed pathway has a strong practical approach, from both an academic and industry perspective, giving you the opportunity to work with diverse populations in the physical activity, exercise and health sectors.  Career opportunities within these sectors are rapidly on the increase as a result of the Government’s drive to help people live longer with healthier living, by reducing the burden of ill health associated with unhealthy lifestyle factors such as physical inactivity, poor diet and obesity.
