About Us

The title of the Exercise and Sport Science department is more than simply a name. These five words accurately reflect how the department covers a whole spectrum of different activities. It is certainly not just exercise and not just sport.

Having built a reputation for excellent academic programmes, high student satisfaction, world-class research and innovative activities, we offer students the chance to work within our £10 million Sport and Exercise Science centre, which contains Interdisciplinary laboratories, an environmental chamber, genetics and biochemistry laboratories and a sports injury clinic.

This range of facilities means that whether your focus is on supporting international athletes competing at the highest level or helping the elderly regain their mobility, you can achieve your goals with us. With a strong history of and focus on interdisciplinary study, students are encouraged to step out of the confines of their own courses, and absorb the broadest range of experiences and disciplines, all of which helps you to progress in your future career.

Another important aspect of the department and the programmes within it is that everything offered is informed by current practice. This current practice is an important part of becoming ‘workplace-ready’: building useful skills that cannot be taught in the classroom as well as contacts that students otherwise would not be exposed to.

To demonstrate these links with sport, the campus was selected as a pre-games training camp for athletes competing at London 2012, and we also supported athletes from 12 Pacific nations with their training for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.
