Studying either Sport and Exercise Science or Sports Coaching and Physical Education at university can open up a wide range of exciting, well-paid careers.

uring our discovery day, we’ll take you through a few of the many disciplines in the area of sport and help you better understand what the professionals specialise in.

We’ll start the day with an introduction to all the different types of careers in sport and exercise science, and the degrees you might choose to reach your chosen career path.

We’ll also give you a taste of what it's like to be a practising sport and exercise scientist or sports coach in our BASES-accredited sports labs.

Sessions may include:

  • Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour, and Health
