Sport, exercise and health

Undergraduate courses starting in 2024

The study of sport explores the impact of sport, exercise and health on individuals and society.

You could learn about the science of sport, exercise and health, coaching, management, leisure and physical activity, and how the body works.

You don’t need to be good at sport to take a sports degree.

Courses cover anything from exercise physiology to the relationship between sport and the media. They have a strong applied focus and are regularly updated to keep pace with changes in the field.

Depending on the course, your studies could incorporate a range of disciplines including:

  • physiology
  • psychology
  • anatomy
  • biology
  • biochemistry
  • politics
  • management
  • education
  • sociology
  • cultural studies.

Our graduates work for a range of employers in areas like sport science support, public health, exercise medicine, education, management, coaching and development.



All our sport, exercise and health undergraduate courses are grouped by league tables under the broad category of Sport Sciences.

‘We provide hands-on scientific and practical skills learning, alongside a broader appreciation of how this fits with the wider public health agenda.’
James Bilzon Professor
