About

You will develop your knowledge and expertise working under supervision with our University's sports teams, sporting partners and elite performers. You will also develop clinical exercise physiology skills working alongside physiologists and doctors on a research project or with athletes through the University's commercial screening services.

You will study modules in the different aspects of sport and exercise physiology, as well as research methods and a major independent study related to your specific interests in this field. You will also be able to choose one option from a range of other modules in sport and exercise science, including biochemistry and nutrition, so you can specialise in an area matched to your career ambitions.

Our University is recognised as a leader in the field of sport and exercise science. The quality of our research is evident in the outstanding results achieved in sport-related studies in the Research Assessment Exercise completed in 2014 in which Leeds Beckett came second in the country for sport and exercise science, leisure and tourism.
