University of Leeds

If you have an interest in sport and exercise, this course will allow you to understand more fully the scientific foundations of sporting performace and health related exercise. You’ll study elements of biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control and sport psychology and work alongside final year sport and exercise students.

Our medical students have enjoyed this course. They typically find it challenging, providing them with opportunities to gain experience in laboratory based skills and research training. Previous students have presented their research at student medical conferences and regional sport medicine interest groups.

Our students often comment on:

  • the benefit of working in research teams to complete experimental work
  • making use of the support provided to help them develop academic writing skills, and
  • looking holistically at issues that relate to health and disease.
