Strength and Conditioning is a popular area within sport science, predominantly from within the discipline of physiology, often requiring knowledge of inter-disciplinary applied sport science and coaching.
The primary focus of this programme is sporting performance. However, the application of strength and conditioning principles to diverse areas including exercise, pre- and rehabilitation, youth and ageing populations, and other specific and clinical populations is becoming more commonplace. By joining this degree, you will have the opportunity to study the application of these principles in your core and option courses, and see how they are reflected in a range of practical contexts through a voluntary internship or placement.
You can exit after 1 - 4 years with PgDip Strength and Conditioning.
A UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in a sport and exercise science subject area.
Your application may also be considered if you have other academic or professional qualifications or considerable relevant experience.
