You’ll cover the key elements of sport and exercise sciences, exploring a range of theories and concepts relating to physiology, biomechanics, and psychology. More importantly, you’ll develop key laboratory skills in a range of disciplines which will help you to improve the performance of athletes.
We’ll give you the opportunity to tailor your degree to your interests after the first year. You can choose to further develop your knowledge and specialise in sports nutrition, performance coaching or strength and conditioning.
Whatever path you choose, you’ll put theory into practice by completing two professional work placements. You can complete your placements in the UK or abroad, and you’ll have the opportunity to volunteer or study abroad as part of your degree. We’ll also give you first-hand experience of working with athletes through Trinity Performance, our sport and exercise science enterprise service that offers coach education, consultancy and health assessments to professional athletes.
By the time you graduate, you’ll not only be ready for a successful career in the sports industry, but you’ll also have been able to develop highly transferable business and management skills that will prepare you for a wide range of graduate roles.
Postgraduate courses are a great way to enhance your skills further and really specialise within an area. Following this course, you will be qualified to study at postgraduate level in areas such as MA Sport Management, MSc Health and Well being, Master by Research programme and PGCE courses, which we provide here at Leeds Trinity.
