Sport & Exercise Science is about much more than just muscle.
Our environmental chamber is the largest facility of its kind in Scotland, and can replicate high-altitude conditions up to the equivalent of Everest Base Camp.
It’s about keen minds that understand that exercise is one of the most underrated medical tools of our age. Whether you want to help sufferers of long-term illnesses keep moving or train elite athletes, we have courses to suit anyone passionate about the subject.
Our specialist labs are full of cutting-edge equipment which you’ll use from year one.
We have exclusive partnerships with Scottish Rugby and Scottish Gymnastics, and helped to found the Scottish Mountain Biking Centre.
Partnerships with the likes of the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and Macmillan mean you’re studying towards improving lives.
There is the opportunity to study abroad as part of many of our Undergraduate courses. Where this is an option, you will be able to study in English at one of our partner institutions. This can be done through ERASMUS or ISEP.
There are volunteering and work-based learning opportunities at each level of the programme. This means you can test your knowledge and experience in a real-life working environment. Placements are also a great way to help you decide what kind of career you want.
