Sport and Exercise SciencesUCAS CODE
This programme draws together the main disciplines of the sport and exercise sciences to give you a thorough understanding of sport and exercise performance and practice from a scientific perspective. After the first year, the programme gives you the opportunity to tailor your degree around your own interests and focus more on the discipline(s) you find most enjoyable. You will also study specific modules designed to develop the skills needed to work as an applied sport and exercise scientist. At Hartpury, you will be exposed to a range of sports participants from the highest level student athletes to recreational participants, in a range of disciplines.
This course is firmly rooted in practice, you will study practice-based modules to develop a range of practical skills. In the early stages of your studies, you will work in a closely supervised environment on the campus in small groups. You will progress to working more autonomously in more challenging environments that may include practice experience away from the campus. Practice experience is already a strong feature of many courses at Hartpury, so you will benefit from well-established practice placement networks. Students on the programme will also benefit from having an Elite Sports Academy on site which offers you the chance of working within a professional environment that is based at Hartpury.
To help you make the most of your degree at Hartpury we have decided to pay for your membership of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (Bases) in your first year. This membership includes benefits such as being part of the largest sport and exercise sciences network in the UK; keeping ahead of the field with leading edge BASES conferences and workshops; and a subscription to BASES' quarterly publication, The Sport and Exercise Scientist.
