The Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences enjoy a prominent position within the University, building upon traditions that stem from Borough Road College – the oldest teacher-training college in the British Commonwealth. We have a long-standing reputation for excellence in teaching and an impressive record of research and publication which consistently attracts high-calibre students, including high level sportsmen and sportswomen who successfully combine study with training and competition.
Our students have varied backgrounds and interests – some are keen to gain knowledge about sports performance, others are keen to explore the links between sport and, for example, community, education, health, and politics. Sport is a hugely popular form of culture around the world and the academic study of sport has grown in popularity to meet the demands of the global sports industry. In parallel with these developments, sport sciences courses at Brunel are up-to-date, dynamic, and forward-looking. If you are interested in studying sport or forging a sport-related career, we welcome your application to study for a postgraduate degree in sport sciences at Brunel.
