About the course
What can I expect out of this qualification?
Graduates will build on the interdisciplinary approach to the study of sport and exercise to a higher level than a BSpEx graduate. They will have the specialised knowledge and practical skills of their majoring area: sport management, sport coaching, exercise science, exercise prescription and training, or physical education. More generically, they can critically evaluate and apply theories in diverse sport and exercise contexts, particularly those that encourage cross-disciplinary and inter-sectoral collaboration. They will have a good grasp of the key underlying principles of the several facets of sport and exercise and be able to implement and adapt these principles within a rapidly-changing professional environment.
