Sport and Exercise Science from Edge Hill University enables you to explore the sciences that underpin sport and exercise performance. Designed for graduates and current practitioners in sport and exercise science, or related areas, the course will enable you to enhance your understanding of the theoretical and practical applications of biomechanics, physiology and psychology.  


Sport and Exercise Science from Edge Hill University will also be highly relevant for those working in community and professional sport, including coaches, current and former athletes, and sports support staff. A distinguishing feature of the course is its applied and multidisciplinary approach, which provides a greater opportunity to examine factors affecting performance in real-world settings. You will learn using contemporary laboratory equipment, gain experience of professional practice, and hone transferable skills that support career development and enhance your employability. The curriculum combines both core and optional modules. This allows you to combine knowledge, understanding and practical techniques in the application of sport and exercise science with the opportunity to explore strength and conditioning, or mental health awareness in community or elite sport.


A range of career opportunities exist within the health and fitness industry. These include roles such as personal trainers, fitness and health consultants, the GP referral scheme, and physical activity programme coordinators. You could also work in applied sports sciences, for national governing bodies of sport, or the British Olympic Associates. In addition, specialised sports science support and performance managers are increasingly being sought by universities and commercial ventures.
