Welcome to Sport and Exercise Sciences

Our Sport and Exercise Sciences department is based in the state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories on Swansea's beach-fronted Bay Campus. It is a great place to explore how the human body performs under different levels of pressure, and the broader issues at play from wider participation in sports, to ethics, sports psychology and nutrition. 

We provide a solid core of modern and relevant learning, preparing you for a fulfilling career in fitness and leisure industries, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, research and more. You will benefit from our close links with organisations including Diabetes UK, Swansea NHS Trust, UK Sport, Sport Wales and the Welsh Rugby Union.
