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. These include a range of specialist units found within the sport sciences, as well as underpinning knowledge units such as anatomy and physiology.
We offer a range of Sports Pathways which can be added alongside your courses. These pathways give you the chance to study your chosen course whilst training and competing in your specialist sport.
