Why study Abertay's BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise?
Dive in to a rich pool of diverse sport and exercise topics – from scientific support, coaching and service provision to duty of care and community development, this programme has been designed to reflect an ever-evolving employment market.
Gain a deeper understanding of the sciences that underpin sport, and discover how the body responds to sport by exploring topics including physiology, psychology and biomechanics, as well as social policy and sport development.
You can choose from a range of study programmes that address the physiology and psychology of performance, the science of training practices, the development and social impact of sport and exercise (for example, on health and wellbeing), and the evaluation and analysis of sports performance.
You’ll be given access to our Human Performance Laboratory, Strength and Conditioning Suite and Motion Tracking Laboratory. This means you will be able to use equipment such as the environmental chamber, gas analysis, force platform and 2-D cameras.
This degree provides you with topical information, an ability to translate theory to practice, and the opportunity to gain relevant employment experience within the industry, while still providing you with the flexibility to follow your own interests.
