This programme is aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in the sport and exercise sciences. Historically, the majority of learners who have completed this programme have gone onto further study at university and specialised in career pathways such as sports nutrition, physiotherapy and sports psychology.
You will study a range of theory units designed to enhance your underpinning knowledge. These include subjects such as sports nutrition, anatomy and physiology, biomechanics and research methods. Whilst the programme has a heavy focus on theory, there are a number of more practical units such as fitness testing and exercise for specific groups. You will study eighteen units over the course of the programme.
