Explore the scientific foundations of sporting and exercise performance
If you love the science of the human body and want a highly-practical degree in sport and exercise science, then we have the course for you.
Endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), and Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA), this course provides the scientific theory and practical skills required to work as a sport and exercise scientist or health and exercise practitioner.
Choose your pathway
Within our sport and exercise science degree, you will learn how to support individuals and teams towards achieving their optimal performance whether that is in a sport, occupational or health setting.
CIMSPA professional standards (Gym Instruction, Personal Training, Health Navigator and Long-Term Conditions) are embedded throughout year 2 and year 3 within a range of optional modules.
This degree gives you the chance to work with experts in state-of-the-art facilities to develop your specialism of choice, as you choose between a degree that focuses on Sport Performance or Physical Activity for Health.
Our course structure means that you will explore the foundations of sport and exercise science before tailoring and personalising your degree to either a Sport Performance (SP) or Physical Activity for Health (PAH) route.
BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science (Sport Performance)
The success of any high-performance athlete is dependent on having a skilled and knowledgeable team of sports scientists behind them.
Our BASES-endorsed sport performance pathway provides you with the skills and knowledge required to assess critically the physiological, biomechanical and psychological characteristics of the athlete and to apply these skills to performance enhancement.
With a practical-based modular approach, you will learn from expert professionals and internationally renowned researchers
BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science (Physical Activity for Health)
This pathway is for you if you want to help make people healthier through lifestyle change. Only 63% of adults and 47% of children meet the government’s physical activity recommendations (Active Lives Survey), with lower activity levels contributing to an increase in chronic disease.
This BASES-endorsed option is specifically designed to develop scientific knowledge and practical competencies in biomechanics, physiology and psychology, with application to health, exercise, and wellbeing.
In addition, you will gain CIMSPA professional competencies in Gym-Instruction, Personal Training, Health Navigator and Long-Term Conditions.
Both pathways are recognised education partners of CIMPSA
Learn the scientific theory and practical skills required to work as a sport scientist
In your first year, you will experience a breadth of disciplines underpinning sport and exercise science before tailoring and personalising your degree to either a Sport Performance (SP) or Physical Activity for Health (PAH) route.
Years Two and Three modules for the Physical Activity for Health route follow after Year Three Sport Performance modules.

Questioning Sport, Exercise and Health
You will be introduced to study skills for higher education and discover the philosophical underpinnings of research in the sport and health sciences. You will also be introduced to qualitative research methods.
Teaching and Assessment
Innovative teaching methods that focus on evidence-based practice
Our team of Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, Readers and Professors ensure innovation, enthusiasm and expertise combine to deliver the excellent standards that give our institution its high reputation.
When you come to Chichester, you will join a community of students and staff working in partnership to ensure that your learning experience reflects best practice and embraces the opportunities presented by new, interactive technologies.
Each module is delivered differently depending on its content and focus of study.
In most modules you can expect lead lectures to introduce core content, but the majority of your time will be spent working in small groups with tutor support in seminars, workshops or laboratory sessions.
Many sessions will require you to have completed some preparatory work and you will also be given structured follow-up work after a session to further progress your learning, often reading or an individual/group task. As you progress through your degree you will be expected to take more and more ownership over your learning and development, directing your study into areas of most interest to you.
You will be assessed by a variety of methods, including essays, examinations, portfolios, practical assessments, lab reports, and oral presentations.
Our course includes a mix of assessments, so that you may develop a wide range of transferable skills. Modules are assessed at every stage of the course, offering cumulative assessment of your progress.
You can monitor your own progress, allowing you the opportunity to discuss and plan your development with your lecturers throughout the course. Where appropriate special arrangements can be made for students with an identified need.
Utilise our extensive professional networks to support your learning
In the final year there is the option to complete a placement which will allow you to apply theory and knowledge in a sport, exercise or health setting of your choice.
This placement will give you the opportunity to further develop transferable skills which will make you more employable.
You will also have the opportunity to pursue your own placement option. Students are ultimately responsible for finding their own placement, however we have a dedicated placement coordinator who is available to assist students and has a network of contacts within the sector.
Acquire the skills and knowledge required to gain employment within the sports, exercise or health sectors
A degree in sport and exercise science offers students the chance to start their career in a sector that is going from strength to strength.
We understand the importance of ensuring that you have the knowledge, skills and experience to compete successfully in today’s challenging jobs market.
With a practical-based modular approach, you have the choice and flexibility to tailor your course to your interests, learning from internationally renowned researchers and practitioners.
