About the course
Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences at Brunel University London is currently ranked second in London by 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 in your future employment.
Our great location in London, plus our strong links with sports personnel, organisations and institutions at local, regional, national and international levels, enables us to offer our students considerable opportunities for career progression.
This course is designed for those who are interested in working with young people in either physical education or youth sport. You will develop a specific understanding of physical education within sport, health, and exercise sciences.
The course is underpinned by a commitment to the principles of social justice, inclusive practice and an appreciation of difference and diversity in varied learning communities. You will also develop your own personal confidence and competence in a range of movement contexts, informed by an understanding of the concept of physical literacy. You will also explore policy and issues relating to practice in curriculum planning, teaching and assessment.
The main 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 Brunel Professional Development Centre.
- Sport science careers events.
- 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.
