Sports and Exercise Science BSc Hons
Lancaster University’s BSc Sports and Exercise Science is one of the first in the UK to be delivered by a medical school. Lancaster Medical School is recognized for its subject expertise, supportive community and satisfied students. This is your chance to study sports and exercise science within an academically rigorous environment and to combine scientific knowledge with professional practice.
You will explore the science behind human performance in sports, exercise, and health. The course balances scientific focus with employability, so you will study anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and psychology alongside subjects such as nutrition, digital technologies in sport and exercise, and data analysis.
The mix of lectures, workshops and laboratory sessions also includes the valuable experience of sports and exercise science research. You may find yourself analyzing warm-up strategies to prevent injury, developing effective training and nutritional approaches for high-performing athletes, or assessing the effects of exercise for weight loss in obese people. You will also be encouraged to consider the increasing prominence of exercise and physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle, and to engage with current debates on public health and disease management.
You will be taught by Lancaster Medical School’s research-active academics with expertise in sports and exercise science, plus specialists ranging from bioscientists and clinicians to sports nutritionists and public health experts.
Our brand new Human Performance Laboratory gives you access to specialized sports facilities featuring cutting-edge technology used by today’s elite athletes. You will learn anatomy using Lancaster Medical School’s life-size anatomical models and benefit from access to Lancaster University’s new £4m life science teaching laboratories.
Using our state-of-the-art equipment, you will gain the skills to capture and analyze physiological and biomechanical data to better understand human performance and activity. You will learn how to act to enhance performance and activity - whether for competition or disease management - and how to provide feedback to an athlete, a patient or a member of the general public.
In your first year, you will begin to explore the science behind human performance in sports, exercise, and health through a broad range of core modules. The degree content covered in year one offers you the opportunity to complete an industry-recognized gym instructor qualification and a personal trainer qualification. This enables you to become a qualified fitness professional at the end of your first year and gain experience of working with people in an exercise and fitness environment over the following two years of your degree, boosting your employability.
