Sport & Exercise Science

Sport and Exercise Science is the application of scientific principles to the promotion and enhancement of sport, exercise, health and well-being. Sport and Exercise Science develops an understanding of the human body’s response to exercise, how to maximise performance in athletes, the benefits of physical activity for health, and the psychological and sociological factors influencing sport and exercise. This course incorporates the core areas of biomechanics, physiology and psychology, and students are encouraged to develop an interdisciplinary approach to solving real-world problems in sport and exercise. Course Structure This four-year course immerses students in the three core areas of sport and exercise sciences through engaging lectures and practical classes. Initial years provide a foundation of knowledge for each core area with students encouraged to develop and apply knowledge and skills in a variety of sport and exercise settings in later years. Is this course for you? If you are interested in how the human body responds to exercise, human movement, how high-performance athletes achieve success, or physical activity for physical and mental health, this course offers an engaging and varied approach so that you can develop the skills and knowledge necessary to improve performance, health and wellbeing through sport and exercise.
