Sport and Exercise Science emerged as an academic area within a developing body of knowledge that encompasses the parent disciplines of Physiology, Psychology and Biomechanics, along with additional sub-disciplines of Sport Nutrition and Performance Analysis. This programme adopts a multi-disciplinary approach with the aim of producing knowledgeable and skilful graduates in the field of Sport and Exercise Science.
The curriculum emphasises the development of skills and knowledge that will help further academic and vocational training and subsequent employment. Students will extend their knowledge and skills in a range of activities through integrated practical experiences. A research project in the final year allows students to integrate their knowledge and skills in an area of specific interest.

*Tuition Fees are per year unless otherwise stated. Currently the 2018/19 fee level, which is due to increase in line with UK Retail Price Index inflation rates has not been announced by the Government.
For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
