Because you’ll study various aspects of sport and exercise, there is a wide range of career opportunities waiting for you. Interested in becoming an exercise physiologist? A sports therapist? Maybe a health promotion specialist? This course will give you a solid foundation to do exactly that. If you prefer going into sports coaching or even manage a fitness centre of your own, we’ve got you covered. Some of our graduates have gone on to work and study in education, business, and nutrition. The opportunities are endless.
What's the course about?
In your first year, you’ll learn the foundations of human physiology and nutrition, as well as musculoskeletal anatomy, psychology and the principles of biomechanics. You’ll gain the analytical and problem-solving skills needed to excel. There is a special module to teach you how to perform and analyse fitness testing and exercise prescription. You’ll study the acquisition of skills and motor control. To help you settle into university life, you’ll take a module focused on developing the academic skills you need to be a successful student.
Your second year builds on what you learnt in first year. You’ll study the applied biomechanics of performance, applied sport and exercise psychology and exercise physiology. The module on research design helps you understand the principles and methods that underpin scientific research. You’ll be able to use this to critique and understand research done in this field. It’ll also come in handy for your final year project in third year. There are also a few optional modules for you to choose from. Learn about exercise for a health population, sports conditioning or functional anatomy and clinical biomechanics.
Work placement/study abroad option: Between your second and final year, you’ll have the option to study abroad or do a work placement for up to a year. Not only will this give you an amazing experience to talk about but will also give your CV a boost. If you’d rather go straight to your final year, that’s fine too. You’ll decide in your second year with us, so there is still plenty of time to think about this.
In your third year, there is only one compulsory module: your final year project. You’ll get a personal supervisor and together you will produce an independent sports research project. This means you’ll design and undertake you own project on a topic relevant to your area of study. You’ll present this in the form of a poster presentation and journal-style report. All other modules are optional and allow you to specialise in the areas you like best. Learn about technology in sport, advanced biomechanics or strength and conditioning. There is one module that allows you to gain 70 hours of work experience*

Ayooluwa - Week at a glance
My week at a glance
To start off the week I look over my timetable so that I am aware of what lectures, practicals and workshops I have. This is because my timetable doesn’t stay the same every week and I like to plan around my timetable. I make notes during my lectures and then go over them afterwards with some essential reading. All my lectures are two hours long and the times for practicals vary. I usually have a maximum of two or three sessions per day and there is free time during the day. If there is a 30 minute or an hour break between lectures, I would usually get something to eat at the restaurant, SU shop or library café.
Due to the assignments I get given either individual or group ones, a lot of my time is spent in the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) with my course mates. When given my assignments I plan them according to the due dates and the word count. Also, I do some research by reading online journals for a good foundation. To get extra help with lectures or assignments I book tutorials with my lecturers and I find them very helpful. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed or I don’t know where to start but asking for help from my lectures makes it easier.
When I am not focusing on my academics, I attend weekly sessions of netball, badminton, Zumba and roller-skating which is run by Active Students. I enjoy physical activities especially when they are free of charge so taking part in this programme is a great way for me to spend my free time. It gives me the chance to let my hair down and bond with my friends and other students. Also, on Wednesdays, I attend a Christian fellowship called RCF. I enjoy it because I allow me to grow my faith and meet amazing people. And of course, Netflix & YouTube = Chill Time!!!
Within the university, I work part-time as a student ambassador. As my weeks can be loaded sometimes it is important for me to balance my work, social life, well-being and academics. This is my main aim because I want to achieve the best grades I can accomplish and have a great university experience. As I was told before coming to university, ‘University will be one of the best experiences of your life,’ and this statement is spot on.
Ayooluwa - Things you should know
Things you need to know before studying Sport & Exercise Science
As someone who loves sport, I was excited to be studying this course. But I was in for a shock. Sport & Exercise Science, emphasis on the science part. Please don’t think this course is only about testing, training, sport, and exercise. When I tell people that I study this course they ask me ‘do you guys just run around.’ Erm no. There is a lot of science involved which is paired with sport and exercise. So please be prepared for that. The science part is interesting as it gives an insight into how an athlete’s body works and how to improve training etc. Sport Science is not an ‘easy’ course, you must work just as hard as if you were studying any other course.
There is essential reading for this course and recommended reading. Essential reading is given at the beginning of the course to aid your learning, it is information that you need to know for this course. Recommended reading is important for widening your course knowledge. Further reading is good for when you don’t understand something during lecture and need to learn about a topic in more depth. I would suggest following the readings given to you by lecturers because with course knowledge and knowledge outside of the course specification you are more likely to achieve higher grades on essays and exams.
The way you will be assessed is split between assignments and exams. The assignments usually involve essays, written exams, practical exams, group presentations and individual presentations. Having a mixture of assessments is quite good because it multiplies your skills and if you are too positive about one method you can make up for it with the other. Most of the assignments are online submission now.
Being organised is crucial for staying on top of assignments and feeling less stressed. This involves planning essays, spreading out revision and setting time aside for reading. Sometimes some assignments have due dates close together and to avoid feeling bombarded it’s best to start assignments early and plan which ones to focus on first. It’s so easy to leave assignments to last minute without even realising it but it’s best to avoid this to increase your chances of higher grades and maintaining positive well-being.
Whilst completing your academics it is easy to forget about your wellbeing and mental health. Forgetting to take care of yourself could lead to a build-up of stress that can lead to breakdowns, which we want to avoid. It’s important to take breaks whilst studying and reading (not super long ones though). Also, don’t overload yourself. Sport & Exercise Science has a society which allows you to socialise with course mates and lecturers so this may be a good way to chill out a bit. Make sure you have free time as well!!
For this course, there is a lot of support available to the students. If you need help with your assignments, revision, the course content, or the course, in general, you can book tutorials with your lecturers during the week. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful so don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it. Also, if you are struggling to write essays there are services available in the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) to help you. Sessions can be booked to get some help.
Well, my last piece of advice is to study well, make memories and enjoy yourself. Good Luck!!!
Ayooluwa - Guide to the facilities
Guide to Sport & Exercise Facilities
Here is a short guide to the sport and exercise science facilities accessible.
Labs are used for practicals, on campus, there are physiology labs and performance labs. The physiology labs have all the equipment needed for physiological testing and anatomy. The performance labs have equipment related to fitness and training. These labs are supervised by staff and can be used for data collection for assignments and for practising practical exams. The labs have all the equipment needed for the course.
Learning Resource Centres (LRCs)
There are two Learning Resource Centres (LRCs) at the University of Hertfordshire. The one on College Lane Campus has the books needed for this course. Mostly every book that is under essential and recommended reading is found in this LRC. Books are loaned from the LRC and can be automatically renewed until the end of the academic year unless someone requires the book. There will be at least three copies of each book available and one copy that is only to be used in the LRC. There is also an online library system that tells you whether there are any books left to loan and has access to e-books. Every book you need for the course is available with the university, so it is best not to buy books in advance before starting the course. They will be in the LRC already. There are study rooms available for group sessions or individual study. There are silent study floors and quiet rooms available. The computers already have software on them that are needed for lectures and practical sessions. Additionally, there is a café and social space if you want to take a break from studying or want a bite to eat.
Lectures & Staff
All the lectures take place in lecture rooms. They are recorded and uploaded to Canvas so you can go over it many times. The lecture slides are also uploaded. Having these materials accessible online is extremely helpful when I have gaps in my lecture notes and for any misunderstandings, I had during the lecture. If you have any further misunderstandings, you can talk to your lecturers during the week. The lecturers are friendly and extremely helpful when you go to them for help. You can book tutorials with them or go to drop-in sessions that the lecturers set up.
The careers department give support for students that are looking for jobs, placements, internships and furthers study. They give advice on where to look, where to get more information etc. Additionally, they can help you with job interviews, applications, your CV, cover letters and finding vacancies.
I have found these facilities to be very helpful towards my degree and have not needed anything that the university does not have. Make sure you make the most of these facilities and utilise them. Good luck!!!
Meet Gavin Beard who has taken his love for sports into industry. Since graduating he has worked his way up the career ladder and is now the Head of Marketing for Norwich Football Club.Read more stories
|Current job role||Head of Marketing|
|Year of graduation||2013|
|Course of study||BSc (Hons) Sports Studies|
More than a degree
Gavin graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with more than a degree; his university experience helped him to gain valuable insight to several disciplines and allowed him to narrow down his career choices.
He says, 'My degree allowed me to study various disciplines, including coaching, science and business. Having exposure to these different areas helped me understand what I favoured, and it was clear that business (and in particular, marketing) was an area I felt I could forge a career in.'
After successfully completing his degree Gavin began moving up the career ladder, working at many well respected companies such as Coral, BT Sport and currently Norwich City Football Club. Gavin puts a lot of his success down to the degree he studied and the support provided by the university.
He comments, 'The variety of modules and the exposure to different disciplines within my course were extremely useful. This was crucial in helping me determine my path. After year one, I knew I liked marketing, so I worked with the ERASMUS team to find a pathway to help me study this abroad. I then studied business in Valencia for a year and it was an experience I’ll never forget.'
Aspirations for the future
Gavin is still really enjoying his career in leading the Marketing team at Norwich City Football Club. He says, 'It’s an incredibly varied role; one day I could be leading the campaign to promote the new kit, the next it’ll be marketing the Take That gig at Carrow Road!'
Gavin is hopeful for the future and says 'Given my experience, my future roles will continue to be in marketing, hopefully I will help Norwich to become an established Premier League team. Then who knows!'
Meet Annabelle Bullock, a BUCS gold medalist, who studied Sports Studies alongside her athletic pursuits. As an athlete she competed in target shooting and as a member of the women's Lacrosse team.Read more stories Find out more about this course
|Current job role||Education Liaison Coordinator|
|Year of graduation||2018 / 2019|
|Course of study||BSc(Hons) Sports Studies|
University experience and support
The University supported Annabelle by making her one of its sponsored athletes providing her with greater flexibility and access to sporting facilities and opportunities. This helped her develop a broad and transferable set of skills and experience.
Annabelle says, 'Being an athlete and studying was challenging, but the University and my lecturers were so supportive. Being made a sponsored athlete also came with a bunch of perks. All this support and the opportunities that the University provided helped me to build the skills and confidence I needed to be truly successful in my job today.'
Annabelle currently works as one of the Education Liaison Coordinators at Herts. Having established fantastic contacts within the University, her student activities meant she could seamlessly progress into a professional role that complimented many of her skills and interests.
'I always assumed that I would do something within sport, but when it came to my final year in BSc Sport Studies, I had found my passion for Coach Education. During my MA in Education at the University, I discovered another passion for helping others and working with student athletes.'
Opportunities to explore
The University is committed to recognising talent in its students and offering any exciting opportunities that can enrich their studies and further their careers. Annabelle's lecturers' encouraged her to explore her passion for research which inspired her to continue with postgraduate study. Most impressively, the University helped her win its first BUCS gold medal in target shooting, which she says 'felt amazing as I was the only one in the team!'
Annabelle's advice for new and current students is to 'Do things that are out of your comfort zone because the skills and experiences you develop may just be the thing that your employer is looking for. Take all of the opportunities you can. I thought I was going to be an athlete forever, then I discovered coaching. I am very lucky that my first "proper" job is something that I absolutely love but I am still able to continue coaching. This summer I am helping coach a target shooting national team in the biggest junior, under 21, competition in the country.'
