Modules & assessment

Year one, core modules

  • Biology of Cells
    In this module practical sessions on cellular respiration, osmosis and cell diversity will support your lectures. You will study the structure and function of cellular organelles, membranes and transport systems, in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. In addition, cell metabolism - the biochemical processes undertaken in living organisms - is a key component of this module. You will also cover Cellular respiration of glucose and the role of mitochondria. The fundamental principle of biology, the ability to renew (cells) and reproduce, both sexually and asexually and the mechanisms of cell division, including mitosis and meiosis, will be also be covered.
  • Biomolecules
    In this module you will focus on water and carbon and their central importance to biology. The composition, structure and function of the four groups of macromolecules - proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids and lipids - will be studied. A specific focus will be the mechanism of action of enzymes and factors such as pH and temperature that affect their function. The lectures will be complemented by practicals that build on the lecture material and teach a range of laboratory skills. The module will also focus on developing the academic skills required to be successful in higher education, particularly independent study, understanding the different forms of scientific writing (for example, practical reports and essays). Other skills taught will include finding reliable sources of information, citation and referencing and avoiding poor academic practice and plagiarism.
  • Mathematics for Science
    Foundation Maths for Science is a course that ensures students on the extended programmes for degrees in the departments of Life Sciences, Biomedical and Forensic Sciences, and Vision and Hearing Sciences have the necessary basic mathematical skills required for entry to level 4. By the end of this module, students will be able to carry out the basic mathematical manipulations and understand the relevant key concepts required in order to progress to their chosen degree course. Each mathematical concept is introduced by a lecture, in which examples of how to use and apply the concept are demonstrated. Students practise problems in a tutorial for each topic, using worksheets given out in advance of the sessions. The worksheets include problems applied to the various degree pathways to which the students will progress, to indicate the importance and applicability of mathematics to their future degrees. The subjects covered are a range of arithmetic skills, algebra, areas and volumes, trigonometry and basic statistics. In addition, there are sessions using Excel for manipulation of simple data sets using formulae and graphical presentation of the results. Students will be expected to apply the skills learnt in graphically presenting data to the other modules they are studying where applicable.
  • Chemical Principles
    This module provides an elementary introduction to chemical science for those with little or no prior experience of the subject. The study of materials and the undergoing chemical changes will be discussed. These principles will then be developed further by exploring the periodic table, chemical equations, calculating concentrations, quantitative chemical analysis such as colorimetry, chemical equilibria and organic chemistry. The practical component of the course will allow you to gain practice in some basic laboratory techniques based on the concepts covered in the lectures. In addition, tutorials will be held for students to practice questions further that arise from the relevant lectures. Laboratory experience and exposure will also equip students with required transferable skills. The focus will also be on good laboratory practice and sustainable approaches to chemistry.
  • Physical Principles
    This module provides an introduction to the principles and laws of physics which underpin all life sciences. No prior knowledge of physics is assumed, and the focus will be on those aspects which are specific to the requirements of students in their future pathways. The module will be taught with a mixture of lectures, workshops, tutorials and laboratory practicals. The module will encompass aspects such as how organisms move in relation to their environment, how they perceive their environment in terms of light and sound, how the physics of fluids and gasses affect the anatomy and physiology of organisms, how electricity is used to allow communication, and finally how radioactivity impacts on organisms, and the applications of physics in modern medicine The practical component of this module will allow the students to develop an understanding of how the theory they are taught in lectures is applied in practical situations. This module will allow the students to progress to their next level of study with a thorough grounding in aspects that are often considered to be challenging, but when understood, allow the students to appreciate fully how organisms interact with their environment, as determined by the fundamental laws of physics and chemistry.
  • Physiology
    Physiology is the science of body function and is related to the structure, or anatomy, or the organism. In this module the main organ and regulatory systems that work to enable the body to function and respond to change, whilst maintaining a constant internal environment, will be studied. Although this module will focus mainly on the human body as an example of a much studied organism, reference to other organisms will be made to illustrate particular principles or to contrast different systems and mechanisms. Laboratory-based practicals and workshops will be used to build on the knowledge gained from the lectures. The practical sessions will enable the development of a range of laboratory-based skills, which will include the recording of observational findings as well as experimental results.
  • Introduction to Sport Coaching & Psychology
    This module will develop your awareness of the subject specialism area of Sport Sciences/Sport Coaching and PE. The first part of the module will focus upon Sport Coaching, with emphasis on the importance of the Coach, communication elements and how a Coach operates in the working environment. The latter part of the module will explore Sport and Exercise Psychology and the relevance of this within the context of coaching, sport science and health. You will take part in a practical in which data is collected via a questionnaire format to help you to identify with the data collecting process within the Sport context, and help you identify with academic publications understanding how data might be collected within the contexts of Sport Coaching and PE and Sport Science. Assessment will require you to analyse data and present this as a poster presentation.
  • Introduction to Exercise Science
    This module aims to introduce you to key themes within exercise science providing a foundation for higher level study. You'll study the essentials of how exercise affects physiological responses of a performer, and be introduced to exercise testing and the principles of movement within the sphere of sport. The conceptual link between theory and practice within sports specific human performance settings will be emphasised. There will be the opportunity to secure the foundations of good laboratory practice and start the process of learning essential analytical techniques. This module will provide you with an opportunity to develop communication skills and lab safety and practical session management skills – essential skills for the sport and exercise science industry.

Year two, core modules

  • Organisation and Structure of Sport
    Sport practitioners, at every level, operate within and around sport organisations, systems, and structures. This broader socio-political organisational environment enables and constrains how sports practitioners operate. Consequently it is important to appreciate this broader environment in order to understand your role within it and how to navigate it in the most efficient and effective manner. You’ll develop an understanding of how sport is organised and structured in the UK (and abroad), the dynamic and complex nature of the sport industry, and the role and influence of organisations and various governmental agencies (e.g. Sport England and UK Sport) in overseeing and delivering sport and physical activity.
  • Introduction to Human Movement
    You’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of human movement using a concept of qualitative movement diagnosis (QMD). QMD is an observational approach to analysing human movement, a key skill which is fundamental to all Sports Coaching, Sport Science, Health and Exercise and Physical Education practitioners. You will also study the types of motion a body can have, including the concepts of distance, speed and time and displacement, velocity and acceleration. These kinematic motion quantities will be explored practically and graphically. The importance of Newton's laws and the net external force to all movement will be explained, giving you an insight into how limb rotation can produce translational movement. The anatomical quantities of mass, weight and centre of mass will be investigated and the links drawn with the body's kinetic and potential energy. You will study and explore the content within the context of real sporting actions such as: standing, walking, running, jumping and throwing and by using the techniques of video analysis, experimental investigation and computer aided data analysis.
  • Pedagogical Principles in Sport
    In this module you’ll cover key theoretical and practical concepts that underpin contemporary coaching. By the end of the module you’ll have developed an appreciation of the coaching process including the ethical, pedagogical, managerial and behavioural components that enable good practice. You’ll investigate the roles, techniques, and planning skills of a good coach, the impact of their adherence to the professional code of conduct, their awareness of health and safety issues and their understanding of how a coaching session should progress. A crucial aspect of coaching is the ability to understand how individuals learn and acquire the knowledge and skills to perform. You’ll learn to identify different approaches to learning and what these mean for coaching practice and athletes’ development.
  • Anatomy and Physiology
    You’ll explore the fundamental aspects of human anatomy and physiology in order to understand how the body responds and performs to physical activity. You’ll look at how the regulation of the human body to stress (exercise) relates to an intricate set of homeostatic events, enabling different systems to increase their overall physiological output to sustain effort. The structure and function of the main organ systems in the body; the musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular and digestive systems will be examined and reviewed in relation to rest and in response to exercise. You’ll study and explore the content through lectures, seminars and laboratory based practical’s where the functional and homeostatic principles will be applied and examined under changing conditions. As well as providing you with subject specific knowledge, this module will enable you to develop a number of specific employability skills related to practical (laboratory) techniques and general skills related to data collection, data handling and data presentation.
  • Research Methods for Sport and Exercise
    Gain an introduction to the core skills required for research and study in sport science and sports coaching in a higher education environment. You’ll develop skills and attributes to initiate an understanding of the research process and stages associated with it and also an appreciation of different types of research. You'll develop an understanding of the different types of data that can be collected within your course area and you’ll develop a good awareness of the data analysis process, utilising different IT skills and IT programs. You’ll develop key employability skills throughout the module, for example, how to construct oral and written reports using appropriate formatting, language and citations.
  • Sport and Exercise Psychology
    Understanding psychological aspects of sport and exercise is vital in enhancing, or inhibiting, sports performance and exercise participation. This could include pre-competition nerves, attention control, self-confidence and motivation. You’ll reflect upon your own experiences in relation to psychological factors and to consider psychological demands of different sports and levels of participation. You’ll use your classroom time to take part in discussion and analysis of specific key topic areas of sport and exercise psychology and take part in group and individual tasks.
  • Exercise Physiology and Nutrition
    Energy is essential for the functioning of the body and is in strong demand during exercise. You’ll explore the biochemical processes involved in energy transfer (metabolism) and will examine the different energy production pathways under aerobic and anaerobic conditions – and extend this understanding to identify the continuum of energy supply and demand during differing modes of exercise. Additionally, the role and contribution of the various macro-nutrients as fuel for the metabolism will be discussed. Energy expenditure during rest and physical activity will also be investigated. As a result you’ll examine how oxygen consumption can give us a reliable insight into our energy expenditure and the different fuel and energy systems used. In this module you will learn through lectures, seminars and laboratory based practical’s where the physiological and metabolic principles will be applied and examined under both resting and exercise conditions. As well as providing you with subject specific knowledge, this module will enable you to develop a number of specific employability skills related to practical (laboratory) techniques and general skills related to data collection, data handling and data presentation.
  • Applied Sport Pedagogy
    This module aims to develop your applied understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of coaching and teaching and will do this by practically applying the key theoretical the concepts that underpin contemporary coaching theory. The module explores the idea of enhancing athletes’ learning through adopting different approaches and relationships as a coach. These concepts will be taught to you using an integrated approach, examining how all of the components link together to achieve success in coaching. This module will help you develop key transferable and employable skills in communication, organisation and analysis of coaching practice, which will be assessed by a variety of coursework methods including a portfolio of reflections on practice and computer based assessments.

Year three, core modules

  • Applied Research Skills
    Expanding on the knowledge and experience gained from the 'Research Methods for Sport and Exercise' module, you’ll continue to develop the knowledge-base and applied skills required to produce a substantive independent report supported by research and data interpretation. You’ll focus on two interrelated areas of study; applied data collection and interpretation with respect to the research process. These two areas will be delivered with recognition of the two paradigms of research, Quantitative and Qualitative, offering different, but complementary, opportunities to collect and evaluate coaching, health, and sports science data for a perspective or objective review of scientific evidence and applied practice. You’ll develop key employability skills related to research design and presentation in a safe environment, providing an opportunity to evaluate which research designs would best suit your intended final year project (Research project or Advanced Work Placement).
  • Sport Development
    Learn about sports development processes from around the world, within a variety of socio-economic and educational contexts, and how these are shaped by government policies. You’ll consider main bodies which influence the development and management of sport and focus on the ways in which sport functions as a business. As you focus on complexities of sports development and compare them to sports structures and funding from around the world, you’ll look at how sport in the UK is constructed and governed. Finally, you’ll research the recruitment, development and funding of athletes across various levels of performance from playground to podium and use case studies from around the world.
  • Performance Analysis
    Whilst sports biomechanics is concerned with understanding the fine detail of movement during an individual’s performance of a particular technique, performance analysts are more concerned with gross movements, or movement patterns in games or team sports. Performance analysts are also more concerned with strategic and tactical issues in sport, rather than with technique analysis. This module examines how such analyses can be applied to a variety of coaching environments in order for you to monitor, analyse, diagnose and prescribe feedback and actions to enhance the learning and performance of the component elements of sport. The ability to objectively analyse both the performer's needs and the coaching process are key elements of good professional practice. You'll develop an integrated approach to performance analysis and gain a broader understanding of the conceptual frameworks underpinning movement at all levels of sports performance. You'll develop key transferable skills including communication, analytical and the ability to present information in a variety of formats.
  • Psychological Profiling for Sport
    Many sports performers now employ sport psychologists in preparation for competition. Before an effective sport psychology intervention programme can be designed and delivered a process of athlete assessment, or profiling, must be undertaken. Here, you’ll build on previous modules and specifically focus on profiling/assessment methods and delivering interventions. You’ll learn the principles of assessing a sports performer from a psychological perspective and consider how the findings can be used to develop an intervention. You’ll cover performance issues, profiling tools and interventions, as well as the latest research and case study scenarios and real-life situations. Finally, you’ll profile an individual athlete on his or her psychological needs and develop and teach and intervention programme.
  • Applied Research and Employability
    This is your opportunity to build and test ideas for your final year research project or advanced work placement. Following on from applied experiences gained in previous modules, you’ll further develop the key competencies that support independent learning and exploration. You’ll create a research project proposal or a proposal for suitable work experience. In addition, you’ll evaluate the ethical and legal issues related to being an applied research or practitioner with Sport and Exercise Sciences.
  • Applied Teaching and Coaching
    This module will put theory into practice, giving you practical experience of planning, delivering and evaluating real life coaching or teaching sessions with the help of a mentor (level 6 student). By the end of the module you’ll have direct coaching/teaching experience and will have generated a portfolio of practical hours of coaching. You’ll develop an appreciation of mentoring, coaching/teaching and reflection, whilst also developing valuable employability skills such as working in a team, communication and professionalism. This module will be particularly beneficial to you if you want to enhance your practical coaching/teaching experience and generate a greater volume of coaching/teaching hours.

Year three, optional modules

  • Strength and Conditioning
    This role of the applied strength and conditioning (S&C) coach at all levels of sport has progressed in recent years and is now a fundamental role within the sport science support team. You’ll explore safe and effective S&C practice and develop an evidence based applied rationale for the role of S&C work in relation to different performance athletes. You will be introduced to the fundamental techniques and principles of athlete assessment, evaluation and consultation, considering these applied modes in conjunction with a recognition of the use of an athlete needs analysis. Although the generic term “S&C” is applied to this training domain you will address the wider implications in relation to the components of fitness: endurance, speed, strength, agility (or equivalent areas). You will also explore the rationale for approaches used in relation to training programme design which will be under-scored by the issues of physiological and anatomical adaptation.
  • Nutrition for Health and Exercise
    Explore the underlying importance of dietary intake to support both health and exercise-related demands. Using theoretical and evidence-based concepts you’ll consider the dietary macro-nutrients (carbohydrates, fats, proteins; including fluid intake) and micro-nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and their role in overall human health, with reference to population-based normative guidelines. You’ll also explore the practical applications of dietary strategies to support increased metabolic demands (eg exercise). Methods of dietary assessment, body composition and energy expenditure will be considered in line with nutritional evaluation using problem-based scenarios. Specifically, you’ll undertake a basic dietary analysis of a selected case study, and, working in teams, evaluate and design a nutrition programme for a specific case pertinent to health and/ or exercise. You’ll develop key employability skills pertinent within this area including: working with clients, dietary evaluation, programme design, team work and reflective practice.
  • Perceptual Motor Skills
    Athletes rely on a constant stream of information from the senses (e.g. vision, audio and proprioception) to execute the skills needed for successful sport performance. This module will initially focus on the processing and the perception of this sensory information. In addition we'll examine how athletes make decisions from this sensory information and how we execute and programme movement. You'll explore topics such as the visual system and get experience with using eye trackers to assess where people look in the environment when playing sport. Also, we'll discuss the influence of factors such as anxiety, expertise and expectancies on the perception of sensory information, anticipation and decision making. The second part of the module will focus on programming human movement, movement coordination and how we can measure performance in the execution of motor skills.
  • Applied Performance Analysis
    Building on the ‘Performance Analysis’ module we’ll take your performance analysis skills into the field working with a sports team of your choice. You will be expected to liaise with a team, work with the coach to develop key performance indicators, video games/matches/contests and then analyse the reliability and validity of the data before presenting to the coach/team. You’ll also consider advanced performance analysis by linking the sportscode software to GPS tracking and heart rate data.

Year four, core modules

  • Strategic Sport Development
    Building on previous sport development modules, you’ll explore contemporary strategic management related issues surrounding the management of public, private and voluntary sports organisations; appreciate the importance of the strategic planning process for the development of sporting opportunities; and understand sport practitioners can develop and contribute to shared organisational objectives in order to achieve wider social outcomes.
  • Long-term Athlete Development
    You’ll examine the holistic development of children and adolescents with a particular emphasis on the importance of adopting a long-term, athlete-centred approach to developing athletes. We’ll specifically focus on the formative years of athlete/participant development and grassroots/recreational sport. The importance of physical literacy and role of fundamental movement skills are highlighted as essential components for enabling individuals to maximise their athletic potential and to encourage lifelong participation in sport and physical activity. You’ll also explore the intersection between sport and physical education pedagogical practice and the role that PE/school sport and alternative activities play in adolescent development and their contribution towards achieving wider sport, health and physical activity objectives.
  • Ethical Coaching and Mentoring
    You’ll examine the coach, their development and the environment within which they work. You’ll review three focused areas which include learning to mentor, awareness into ethical issues affecting the coaching domain and learning to appraise and applying theoretical concepts to support a particular view point. You’ll have an opportunity to work as a mentor to a coach, applying the knowledge you have gained and implementing this in a practical setting. The complex nature of coaching will be examined and how the coach works within the real world, with real-life sporting situations being utilised.
  • Developing Performance Athletes
    Performance sport is an area many students would like to work in but is highly competitive and high pressured. We’ll therefore consider working in this type of environment and the pressures that coaches and performance directors face when making systems/structures that balance the needs of the funding agencies against the needs of the athletes. Following on from ‘Long-Term Athlete Development’, you’ll consider developing and managing the daily training environment, assessing athletes, Talent Identification/Detection and designing training programmes from an athlete centred, coach led perspective. When considering the above factors you’ll be expected to draw upon knowledge developed in previous and co-existing modules to appreciate the multi-faceted nature of performance sport.

Year four, optional modules

  • Performance and Exercise Nutrition
    Following on from your Nutrition for Health and Exercise module, you’ll explore contemporary applications of dietary practice for sports performance. You’ll be introduced to, and review, the importance of macro/micro-nutrition with a focus on sport and exercise. Using evidence-based research, the impact of nutrition for different sporting contexts will be explored. Lecture-based theoretical considerations will be merged alongside seminar workshops to develop practical protocols for key performance nutrition areas including: nutrition for enhanced strength and power; endurance-based nutrition; weight making sports and weight management; and recovery-based strategies. A central focus of this module includes current research-based awareness of selected ‘ergogenic’ aids, and practical implications for sports performance (e.g. creatine, beta-alanine, caffeine and sodium bicarbonate). Ultimately, you’ll develop a critical understanding of applied aspects of nutrition relevant to the demands of a chosen sport.
  • Applied Sports Psychology
    In this module we’ll specifically examine the psychological factors of successful performance and will address issues such as coach-athlete relationships, sport and exercise psychology interventions, coaching behaviour and burnout. You’ll gain the knowledge and skills to successfully prescribe and deliver sport and exercise psychology interventions as a coach or sport scientist. We’ll examine and critique the latest research, and discuss the current knowledge in specific topic areas.
  • Exercise Medicine
    You’ll review an in-depth study of the mechanisms by which physical activity (and reduction in sedentary behaviour) improves health and how it may be promoted. Expanding on Exercise Physiology, testing, research methods, and psychology skills gained in previous modules, you’ll apply this to the physiological and psychological aspects of health and disease. You’ll focus on the relationship between physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and health. The role of exercise prescription will be analysed and discussed in detail showing how physical exertion can manifest itself in positive psychological, physiological, and metabolic adaptations. From this it will be possible to make recommendations in terms of the key factors required for a healthy lifestyle having learnt how to monitor free-living physical activity through accelerometery and surveys.
  • Strength and Conditioning
    This role of the applied strength and conditioning coach is continuing to grow in importance. You’ll begin within an in-depth exploration of the body’s anatomy and address the principles of muscle, joint, connective tissue interactions and how locate these through the process of palpation and recognition. With this knowledge you’ll then be able to address the mechanistic principles of strength and performance development. You’ll learn how to work in a safe and effective manner executing appropriate movement patterns in relation to the gross anatomical structures that need to be engaged. Supporting these principles, you’ll develop a scientifically applied rationale for the role of strength and conditioning work in different population groups and also consider how technology can enhance the practice of the professional. You’ll be introduced to the techniques and principles of athlete assessment, evaluation and consultation. You’ll constantly consider endurance, speed, flexibility, agility and power, as well as gaining an in-depth appreciation for the training principles and methodologies and exploring the physiological rationale for these approaches in relation to programme design. You’ll be jointly taught between our staff at Anglia Ruskin and an external strength and conditioning professionals.
  • Contemporary Issues in Sport, Exercise and Performance Physiology
    The advancement of knowledge, applications, technology and theories in the sport, exercise and performance psychology domain is rapidly increasing. You’ll therefore cover the most up-to-date topics discussed in national (e.g., BASES) and international (e.g., AASP, ISSP, FEPSAC) Sport and Exercise Psychology conferences. You’ll also consider the transfer and adaption of current and innovative research and technology from the general psychology domain. This is a great opportunity to be at the forefront on the sector whilst developing relevant transferable skills including problem solving, creativity, teamwork and thinking “outside of the box”.
