Introduction to Sport and Exercise PhysiologyThis module provides the foundations of the key human systems (both anatomical and physiological) and their responses and adaptations to sport and exercise. Foundations in Sport and Exercise PsychologyExamine the psychological consequences of engaging in sport and exercise, as well as the mental factors that impact on quality sport and exercise experiences.
Principles of BiomechanicsLearn about the theoretical and practical aspects of biomechanics relevant to understanding motion of the human body and the forces generated or experienced by the human body. Principles of TrainingThis module provides essential information for working effectively and safely with the general population as well as special populations in a gym environment. Exploring Coaching PracticeThe aim of this module is to facilitate and encourage exploration of areas within the academic discipline of coaching and begin to make links between and inform coaching practice.

You can choose the Personal Training or Exercise Referral pathways. Applying Coaching Theory to PracticeThis module facilitates and encourages further exploration of topics within coaching, and develops the academic skills necessary to relate the study to coaching as a profession. Developing ProfessionalPractice in Coaching You will further develop your experience of coaching and reflective practice through practical coaching activities; classroom-based learning, and a short coaching placement.
Choose two modules from:Applied Sport and Exercise PhysiologyThe module aims to outline, both theoretically and practically, how the bodies’ structures and functions are altered by bouts of physical exercise, and how these concepts can be applied to training in order to enhance exercise tolerance and sport performance. Practical Applications in Sport and Exercise PsychologyIn this module, students develop the principles from Foundations in Sport and Exercise Psychology and relate them to sport, coaching, management and exercise contexts. Experimental BiomechanicsThis module builds on the basic Biomechanical principles introduced through the Level 1 module Principles of Biomechanics.

Advanced Coaching PracticeFurther develop your coaching practice by drawing upon current understanding and critical evaluation of a range of topics within the disciplines of coaching and sport science. Sport Project and DissertationYou will produce an original and independent piece of work in a specialist area of sport science, coaching, exercise science or sport and leisure management depending on your focus of study.
Choose one module from:Strength, Power and Endurance for Sport and ExerciseThe module typically focuses on six topics related to applied exercise physiology and strength and conditioning research. Applied BiomechanicsThe aim of this module is to address in the context of biomechanics how to improve and or optimise human performance and to understand how human performance can be affected by or result in dysfunction. Choose one further module from:Sport and Exercise NutritionThis module aims to provide the fundamental knowledge and understanding, underpinning the relationship between nutrition and exercise performance.
Environmental Sports PhysiologyThis module intends to outline some of the physiological adaptations that occur when the human body is exposed to an extreme environment. Advanced Topics in Sport and Exercise PsychologyStudents will become familiar with selected areas such as motivational climate, athletic identity, mental toughness, psychology of injury and morality in sport and the emphasis of this module will be placed on current primary research.
