Sport, exercise and health

Undergraduate courses starting in 2025

By studying sport, exercise and health, you can explore the impact of physical activity, nutrition and lifestyle on individuals and societies.

Our courses cover the science of sport, coaching and elite performance; the key influencers of health and wellbeing; and the organisation of leisure and physical activity.

They're taught by experts in sports and exercise science, public health, and coaching. Their research in areas like behavioural science, biochemistry, biomechanics, injury prevention, management, nutrition and metabolism, sociology, and sport psychology directly influence the units you’ll study.

Graduates have gone on to work in elite sports science, exercise medicine, education, management, coaching and development, and public health.

You can study a sport, exercise and health degree whether you’re a sporty person or not.



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
