The Sport, Health and Exercise Science course from University of South Wales is positioned within the Faculty of Life Sciences and Education and utilises our British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) approved laboratories at our Glyntaff Campus and our state-of-the-art strength and conditioning and performance analysis suites at our Sport Park. The course is delivered by a multidisciplinary team ensuring that you have a range of specialist experts in the field to facilitate your learning and professional development.
During the course, you will conduct supervised and independent research as part of your research project module. This allows you to make use of the facilities and staff expertise on offer, and further allows you to specialise in your area of interest. The University of South Wales was recently ranked joint 1st in the UK for the impact of its research in sport and exercise science, with 96% of our research being considered as world-leading or internationally excellent. This demonstrates the strong research culture within the department, and our students are encouraged to engage with this from the beginning of their studies.
The course also requires you to complete a work placement, which ensures that you do not only have the opportunity to graduate with an internationally recognised qualification, but you also have industry-relevant experience, which is essential for the modern graduate. A few examples of placements that our students have recently undertaken include The Football Association of Wales, Cardiff City FC Academy, University Hospital of Wales, technical demonstrating positions within higher education institutions, gyms and exercise referral schemes within local authorities.
A higher level degree such as an MSc, MPhil or PhD is becoming increasingly essential if you want to pursue a professional and/or academic career in sport and exercise science or physical activity/nutrition related to public health. Future employment opportunities include areas such as academia, professional sports clubs, the public/private health sector, sport national governing bodies, fitness industry, as well as supporting those of you already in employment such as teachers, community sport and health officers, as well as physical activity and fitness leaders.
