About

The Sport and Exercise Science and Medicine programme of the University of Glasgow is designed to provide you with an advanced, research-led programme of study in sport and exercise science and medicine. A key strength of this programme is its flexibility, which enables you to specialise in physical activity and health, sports performance, or sports medicine.

Overview

Why this programme

Accredited by the Royal Society of Biology for the purpose of meeting, in part, the academic and experience requirement for the Membership and Chartered Biologist (CBiol).

The aim of the Sport and Exercise Science and Medicine programme of the University of Glasgow is to merge sport and exercise medicine and sport and exercise science within a single degree programme providing a broad range of options across these disciplines. 

Benefit from access to the facilities and resources of the National Stadium Sports, Health and Injury Clinic at Hampden Park, a custom-built, state-of-the-art sports medicine facility.

Develop and enhance your skills in:

  • Literature searching and critically evaluating relevant scientific evidence
  • Application of knowledge to novel concepts and situations
  • Experimental design
  • Research methods and ethics
  • Data handling and statistics
  • Interpretation and evaluation of experimental data
  • Scientific writing
  • Oral presentations

Access state-of-the-art facilities to study performance and health aspects of sport and exercise science, from the whole body to the molecular level. These include advanced exercise laboratories, metabolic investigation suites and a molecular biochemistry lab. We are the best equipped exercise science group for laboratory facilities in Scotland.

Opportunities for internships (in place of a research project) may be available for some students since the University has close links with a number of regional/national sporting bodies and professional sporting clubs.

Guest lecture staff provide interactive sessions in their specialist fields.

Career prospects

The flexibility of this programme will provide you with many career opportunities.

These include working in clinical exercise, health-promotion or in sports science support.

A number of our graduates are employed in senior sports science positions with national sporting bodies and professional sports clubs.

This programme also allows doctors and physiotherapists to aid their knowledge.
