vikkiworldcupqualifiers2006

The Division reflects the School’s commitment to refreshing and developing the curriculum with the introduction of a new suite of sports courses. These routes are supported by associated research and consultancy developments in sports coaching, sports development, and sport and exercise studies, as well as research development in these areas. There are links with a number of organisations in the area so that students gain industry experience.

There are many varied career opportunities for graduates in sport. In a vibrant and fast moving career you will be contributing as coaches, leaders and managers from your local community, the sports and leisure industry, and psychology careers.


About the staff teaching you

Apart from getting on with the business of teaching, many of the Division staff are either actively involved in research or work with schools and employers as a collaborative process. The Division has had a number of local secondary schools visit the Performance Laboratory to provide pupils with additional support for their PE studies; staff members also visit primary schools as part of a science, technology, engineering and maths project.

Research interests that staff have recently presented on or received grants for:

  • the art and science of coaching
  • coaching in the international context
  • effects of fluid content on sports performance
  • the physical effects of load carriage
  • health professionals and exercise information
  • adherence to exercise
  • emotion-cognition link in sports performance
  • adolescents’ health behaviours
