Exercise can be an incredibly powerful tool - whether to drive elite athletic performance or to fight obesity, cancer, depression and a range of other conditions. Our BSc (Hons) Health and Exercise Science programme can help you master that tool, with a unique blend of human biology, physiology and psychology.
Studying a wide range of units, you'll develop an in-depth understanding of the structure and function of the human body, exploring how it responds to various forms of exercise at different points across the lifecycle.
You'll get a good grounding in the key scientific principles, before developing higher-level knowledge focused on responses to the physical, psychological and environmental stressors that affect sports, exercise and health. Then, in your final year, you'll focus on the specialist area that interests you most with a major research project.
Join us and you'll learn in a supportive environment from leading academics, with subject matter that's shaped by the latest research. So, by the time you graduate, you should have what you need to pursue a range of possibilities in health or sport - with the specialist knowledge and practical skills to really make a difference.
