~~Knowledge and understanding of Sports Science and Physical Education is developed through an integrated programme of lectures, tutorials, practicals and laboratory based sessions, and through the guided use of student centered learning activities such as problem solving exercises, case studies, directed reading and e-learning. The 1st year provides a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding in all disciplines of sports science including psychology, human physiology and anatomy with the addition of specific PE workshops and practicals. The focus of Year 2 is the application of knowledge and in particular the science behind effective teaching and learning in sport. The final Year 3 and 4 emphasis is placed on advanced and applied aspects of sports performance and physical education.
Part time over 4 years. The programme is delivered over 30 weeks per year, 2 evenings per week (Tuesday and Thursday) and 10 Saturdays over the 30 week duration. (This course can also be studied full time over 3 years)
Once students have completed year 1 they have the option to continue year 2, 3 and 4 of Sports Science and Physical Education or they can change over to year 2, 3 and 4 of Sports Therapy.
Entry to this course is by direct application.
