Mathematics is one of the most timeless and international disciplines in existence. Both ancient and modern, it forms the foundations upon which the modern world is built.
Sport and Exercise Science is equally rooted in our distant human beginnings and anchored to our present state. It explores how the human body performs under different levels of pressure and covers broad issues from wider participation in sports, to ethics, sports psychology and nutrition.
Studying at Swansea University gives you access to world-leading teaching and cutting edge facilities.
This three-year combined BSc degree covers a broad base of classical and contemporary theory across both disciplines.
Designed to be fresh and relevant to the wider industry, graduates of our Mathematics and Sport and Exercise degree will be presented with a truly wide range of career opportunities.
If you don’t have the necessary entry requirements to enter on to the first year of a degree, you may be offered a place on a degree course with an integrated foundation year.
