We provide cutting-edge programmes in sport and exercise science, performance sport and coaching, physiotherapy and sports therapy.

We use many new technologies with innovative approaches to our teaching and research, and pride ourselves on our interdisciplinary approach to deliver our programmes.

Members of our teaching team have attended the Olympic Games and the World Championships as sport science support staff. Colleagues have also attended the European Championships and the Commonwealth Games in similar capacities, in a variety of sports. We use our research to support athletes at local, national, and international level.
