Applying the principles of sport and exercise biomechanics to support and enhance your understanding of human performance and injury is at the heart of this course. You will have the opportunity to examine the function and movement of the human body through laboratory data collection, employing cutting-edge technology such as 3D motion analysis, multicomponent dynamometry and neuromuscular imaging.
Your learning will be inspired by the very latest insights, and you will be supported by tutors who are engaged in research and scientific support within the areas of neuromuscular assessment and the optimisation of athletic performance. Their research was graded "internationally excellent" and "world leading" in the Research Excellence Framework 2014. They have provided support and coaching interventions for Olympic athletes. Under their guidance, you will be able to put your learning into practice working with University sports teams, professional sports clubs and elite performers.
Modules are assessed through a mix of coursework assignments, case studies, examinations, laboratory reports and presentations appropriate to the programme. Each module is assessed through the equivalent of 4,000 words.
SPORT AND ACTIVE LIFESTYLES
At Leeds Beckett we're passionate about sport. There's a huge range of sports and activities for you to get involved in, including more than 40 sports clubs. If you'd like to find out more about what we have to offer - including our Carnegie Sports Scholarship Scheme - take a look at our Sport & Active Lifestyles website.
Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: 59% of our research submitted was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent.
Our University is recognised as a leader in the field of sport and exercise science. The quality of our research is evident in the outstanding results achieved in the Research Assessment Exercise completed in 2014 in which Leeds Beckett came second in the country for sport and exercise science, leisure and tourism.
Much of our outstanding sport and exercise science research pervades our taught modules providing the opportunity for those of you working or intending to work in the field of sport and exercise science and its sub-disciplines (physiology, nutrition, biomechanics and psychology) to upgrade your academic and professional skills, expertise and knowledge.
A range of career options will be available to you upon graduation. You could lead sport science support programmes for teams and elite athletes or work in industry for companies specialising in sport science solutions and innovation. You could apply for jobs in health and clinical settings or secure employment with national governing bodies or sporting organisations. You will also be well placed to progress your expertise by conducting research at PhD level.
