  • Course description
    This course covers a wide range of areas including physiology, psychology, biomechanics and nutrition to help you gain a comprehensive understanding of the impact of exercise on health. Everything is designed to help make you more employable, so you can expect to learn through practical experience; backing up the theory you will study through laboratory and field work.
    You’ll also be able to make the most of our relationship with our partner AFC Bournemouth, with guest speakers and volunteering opportunities. You’ll also be able to attend conferences, workshops, field trips and industry visits to really bring your studies to life.
    As well as engaging with guest speakers from the industry, local community stakeholders and elite sports clubs, you’ll also be able to use our sport performance laboratories to measure the impact that changes to a training regime can have. It’s here that you’ll begin to see how you as a coach can use that information to make real improvements to the performance of athletes or sports teams.
    There are opportunities to work in this field all over the world, so you will also have the chance to broaden your horizons by studying abroad at one of our many partner institutions in Europe and the US.
    As you’d expect from a course aimed at employability, you’ll also have the chance to undertake a work placement. This can be for either 6 or 30 weeks, and gives you the chance to make professional connections within the industry, as well as putting your learning into practice. That extends to your final assessment – if you want to, you can opt to undertake a research expedition instead of a dissertation. This will involve performing in-depth research on the needs and responses of people completing a UK-based endurance expedition.Sport scholarships
