We enhance sports-related research, teaching, and provision at Bath by promoting a more integrated, pro-active, and externally engaged approach to the subject.

Sports research with real-world impact

Sport@Bath builds on Bath’s reputation for excellence in sports research, teaching and performance, and its commitment to public health and healthy living.

We promote research that improves how people access and participate in sport at all levels. Our activities fit within three core themes: sustainability, health and wellbeing, and digital.

Our research impact

High-level performance in sport

Bath supports many top-level athletes and sports teams. Lots of elite sportspeople use our facilities and train with our staff, and large numbers of student-athletes have represented their countries at major sporting events or gone on to play for high-level sports teams.

Our innovative research, dedicated staff and experienced teaching practitioners help to support all athletes to maximise their potential.

Leaders in sports science education

We're highly ranked in independent league tables for our sports science courses and have been recognised for our high-quality research. This research informs the content of our courses, promoting contemporary learning.

Industry links

We actively engage with the wider sports industry, to ensure our research contributes to improving processes and outputs, and is relevant to the needs of athletes and sporting organisations.

Our MSc Football Medicine in association with FIFA course is co-developed with FIFA, while many of our students complete placements and projects with real-world sports teams and governing bodies.
