Exercise Sciences (Common Entry) is an exciting new four year degree path for those wishing to pursue a programme of study in the area of exercise science but who also wish to graduate in a specialist field.
The broader nature of the first two years of the degree programme will allow you time to learn about the wide range of career opportunities available in the fields of exercise science before deciding on a career path. The Common Entry Scheme therefore provides you with an exciting educational experience (both academic and practical) in exercise science whilst providing you with opportunities to sample areas of specialism prior to deciding which particular path you wish to follow in terms of your final award specialism.
In this programme you will study subjects, supported by practical placements, related to Exercise Science in the first two years of your degree. These subjects will include such areas as Fitness and Movement; Functional Anatomy & Kinesiology; Sport & Exercise Biomechanics; Data & Measurement; Business for the Exercise Professional; Nutrition; energy and macronutrients and Positive Psychology. In the final two years of your degree you will take a specialist pathway.
Exercise Sciences (Common Entry) has three specialist exit pathways. Towards the end of your second year of the common entry degree programme you will be asked to select one of them to study in order to obtain your final award:
