Be more than a graduate

Engaging in a hybrid-learning approach to your studies with both virtual and campus-based lectures; practical seminars and workshops, you will develop topic-focused knowledge, together with wider employability and industry-relevant skills, preparing you to be more than a Graduate. The Applied Sports Conditioning and Exercise programme is a two-year foundation degree (FdSc), comprising of 2 years (levels 4 and 5) and can be followed by the level 6 top up in Applied Sports Conditioning & Exercise (BSc Hons).
With an industry focus, the first year has been designed to provide the foundation for your knowledge and understanding, focusing on human function and movement; psychology; training principles for sports conditioning and exercise; nutrition; physiology and performance; how do multi-disciplines work together for overall performance? Application is the key upon progressing to the second year, developing further independent academic skills through research and practical skills in conditioning, exercise and rehabilitation, through a variety of taught and practical modules and continuing your professional practitioner journey.
