About the course
The Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences programmes at Brunel University London are currently ranked second in London (The Complete University Guide 2017). As a Brunel student, you will enjoy research-led teaching of the highest quality, which will stand you in good stead for future employment.
Our great location in London, the most employer-dense region of the country, has helped us to forge strong links with sports personnel, organisations and institutions at local, regional, national and international levels – thereby enabling us to offer our students considerable opportunities for placements and career progression, during and after their time at Brunel.
The main aim of our programmes is to give you the opportunity to build your degree to suit your preferences and needs. This is why we offer a range of bespoke pathways, all of which are designed to improve your versatility and confidence – and ultimately your employability. However, you only have to decide on your pathway at the start of your second year at Brunel – a feature of our programmes that our students have enjoyed for many years.
As a student on our unique joint honours programme, which draws on expertise spanning two world-renowned academic Departments, you will not only study a broad range of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences topics, but also key business disciplines including Management, Organisational Behaviour, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship. Therefore, as a graduate, you will be equipped with the knowledge and understanding of business administration and management processes required in professional organisations and to understand and address the problems facing complex, fast-changing organisations – coupled with detailed knowledge and understanding of the scientific principles underpinning Sport, Health, and Exercise Sciences.
We believe that this combination of scientific knowledge and rigour, coupled with greater business acumen, will be highly valued by your future employers – a belief that is reflected in the 100% employment rate of graduates of this programme (DLHE data 2013/14). Students on this programme have worked at large global companies such as Canon Europe, Cision (Chicago), IBM, and JP Morgan.
The first and foremost aim of our newly-revamped programmes is to give you the opportunity to build your degree to suit your preferences and needs. This is why we offer a range of bespoke pathways, all of which are designed to improve your versatility and confidence – and ultimately your employability.
Your employability after graduating is important to us, so we offer a range of opportunities and events throughout your course to prepare you for life after graduation. These include:
- sandwich placements in the UK and abroad
- employability workshops by the award winning Placements and Careers Centre
- sport science careers events and
- opportunities to study in America.
We have an international reputation for sporting excellence, offering sport scholarships and making flexible arrangements for high level performers. Up to 100 national sporting honours are achieved by our current students each year and we can boast many Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European champions amongst our graduates.
