Why study this course?
Our Sport and Exercise Science (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) is an alternative route into undergraduate study if you don’t have the necessary qualifications or can’t meet the entry requirements to begin your studies on the standard course. On completion of this four-year degree you’ll graduate with the same title and award as students who study the traditional three-year course.
We’ve been ranked among the top 30 UK universities – and best in central London – for sports science in the Guardian’s 2020 university league tables.
More about this course
On this four-year course you’ll develop in-depth knowledge in the field of sport and exercise science, including physiology, anatomy, psychology and coaching. You’ll achieve an understanding of the role of therapists and scientists in sport and learn about the ways in which these roles may help to increase performance or prevent injury.
During your time at London Met you’ll receive exceptional support from an academic mentor and tutor, as well as from other services at the University. While you’re here, there will be opportunities to take advantage of various workshops, including those run by our careers service.
Your foundation year will equip you with vital scientific and study skills, so you’ll be well prepared to undertake more intense study in the subsequent three years of your degree. This year will be shared with students from other subject specialisms, presenting a great opportunity for you to learn about different areas of human sciences and meet students from different subjects.
On completion of the foundation year you’ll study the same content and have the same choice of modules as students on the Sport and Exercise Science BSc (Hons) degree. If at the end of your foundation year you’d like to change your specialism there will be flexibility to allow you to do this.
You’ll be assessed through progress tests, online tests, practical reports, presentations, exams, class tests and a final research dissertation.
Where this course can take you
This degree will prepare you for a career in both commercial and scientific settings. You’ll receive general scientific training and gain a range of transferable skills that will enable you to take a wide range of roles.
Our graduates have gone into roles in sports therapy at AFC Wimbledon and holistic training at Educogym.
