About the programme

The role of the modern sport and exercise scientist continues to develop, with the promotion of an active and healthy lifestyle helping to prevent chronic and potentially life-threatening diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.

The scientific knowledge gained from this practical programme means you’ll be equipped to work with a wide range of populations, including athletes, young people, older people, and those suffering from, or at risk of developing, a number of disease states.

Teaching is reinforced by research, and there’s a strong emphasis on the links with industry. This includes opportunities for placements and internships. Practical sessions will be delivered in bespoke physiology and biomechanics laboratories.

You’ll also have access to our Human Performance Laboratory, with running, rowing, fitness testing and weights machines. There are numerous opportunities to meet the professional sportsmen and sportswomen who draw on the expertise of our lecturing staff within this facility.

The course is endorsed by The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences Undergraduate Endorsement scheme, one of only two programmes to achieve this in Scotland.
