Waiting for your A Levels results or thinking about Clearing? Understand the science of human performance in sport and exercise. Our degree in Sport and Exercise Sciences offers flexibility with module choices and the opportunity to pursue one or a mix of three specialist pathways; sports performance, exercise and health and nutrition.
You’ll learn from a team of practising professionals, either accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) or registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). They are at the forefront of global research, with 71% of our sport and exercise research achieving internationally excellent or world-leading in the REF 2014.
Students develop skills through placements with professional teams and individuals undertaking challenging outdoor expeditions. They support training phases by measuring VO2max and lactate threshold testing, and work with coaches and athletes to individualise training programmes for maximum performance. Students could also experience clinical work placements or work as part of cardiac rehabilitation programmes. In these placements they would work in the community to support improved health and disease prevention programmes. This is a growing employment area.
All three pathways include the study of biomechanics, physiology and psychology. Key themes include exploring the body’s physiological adaptation to exercise, understanding the mechanics of movement and how they influence performance, and examining the psychological aspects of performance and health.
You’ll develop advanced skills in scientific research methods, undertaking a research project in your final year in an area that interests you. You’ll learn in fully equipped sports science, physiology and biomechanics labs and suites – frequently used by professional teams and athletes – including an environmental chamber, CV exercise stations, online CPX gas analysis, eye-tracking technology, hematology lab, lung function and spirometry equipment.
Any questions get in touch - we'd love to see you in the lab in September!

#teamglos #uniofglos #studentlife
What's your best trick for getting to know new people?
Try one of these tricks and you'll soon be feeling at home with your new flatmates in our halls of residence, new student village or city centre residences:
1. Open a giant packet of biscuits and offer them to whoever comes through the door - some of the best friendships are forged over food!
2. Pack your favourite card game and offer to play it with your new housemates - you'll soon discover who the card sharks are!
3. Plan a movie night and tell everyone to bring their favourite film - you can all vote for what to watch (and find out who has the most cringe taste in films!).
Applying in Clearing? Don't forget we've got your back with guaranteed accommodation 👍 #teamglos #uniofglos #studentlife

A number of students from the MSc Sports Strength & Conditioning degree attended the 14th Annual UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) Conference in August at the Stadium Milton Keynes. The @uksca
is the accrediting body for strength and conditioning professionals in the UK and the annual conference attracts the best researchers and coaches to talk from both the UK and other international associations. Two students submitted their dissertations to present their research findings. There were notable successes with the research submissions as Thomas Heelas (supervised by Dr Nicola Theis and Dr Jonathan Hughes) received a UKSCA travel grant to attend and present his work. Further, Thomas and Sam Applebee (supervised by Richard Clarke and Dr Jonathan Hughes and supported by Dr Paul Read from Aspetar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital) won the 1st and 2nd prize, respectively, for their abstract submissions. The feedback from the research panel of the UKSCA was very positive and complimentary to the range and quality of research being conducted by students at the university. This is a strong reflection on the research ethos and support the students receive from the academic team across the Community of Applied Sport and Exercise Science team. For the full post visit our blog - link in bio.

The BSc (hons) in Sport and Exercise Sciences at @uniofglos
goes from strength to strength with the release of the latest NSS results. .
The 27th July marked the release of this year’s National Student Survey (NSS) results which provides final year students with an opportunity to voice their experiences about the course and institution they are currently at. The University of Gloucestershire’s overall satisfaction score has risen from 84% in 2017 to 86% in 2018. This ranks the University in joint 34th place out of 138 universities and HE colleges in the UK.
The BSc (hons) Sport and Exercise Sciences programme recorded a 92.3% overall satisfaction score which is an improvement of 5.2% from last year’s survey result.
Dr John Parker, Academic Course Leader for the programme said “Naturally, the team is delighted with this outcome and highlights a consistent and concerted effort to develop a degree programme that allocates resources and energies around the educational and aspirational needs of our students. In addition, it is particularly pleasing that many of the changes that have been implemented evolved alongside rigorous student consultation ensuring that the programme reflects a collaborative approach to course enhancement.” It was also good news for the Community of Applied Sport and Exercise as a whole who saw overall student satisfaction among students in the community increase by 0.2% this year to reach 88.6%.

University of Gloucestershire student, Lauren Excell, has written a fantastic blog post about her placement experience with Broadway Events.
Lauren said; "[My time with the] Broadway Events team has allowed me to implement and improve on the skills that I had learnt during the first two years of my degree, but it has also hugely helped me to develop at a person, allowing my confidence to grow and teaching me on-the-job skills that would never be taught in the classroom. "I would do this year 100 times over and would recommend it to anyone sitting on the fence when it comes to a placement year. It helps you to prepare for your future career and mature before heading back to uni for the final year. If like me, it may even give you some new ideas for a dissertation." You can read the full blog post here: https://www.broadwayevents.co.uk/2018/07/13/internship-broadway-events/
Congratulations Lauren, and thank you for sharing your experience with us!
