The Applied Approach

"The applied nature of the course was something that was eye-catching on my visit to the University’s Open Day. From day one of the course this was apparent with lots of practical sessions and hands-on work throughout a number of the modules on the course."

"The course and facilities were constantly developing and improving allowing me to develop a broad set of skills that covered a number of key disciplines within sport science. The Sport Science staff are also an amazing team, they are very approachable, helpful, and friendly and have such in-depth knowledge of the subject area."
