A sports science course introduces students to the various branches of science that relate to the relationship between exercise and the human body. Over the course of the degree students will develop an understanding of physiology, psychology, neurophysiology, biomechanics, biochemistry, psychophysiology, anatomy, biokinetics, muscle mechanics and immunology, and by being exposed to these various disciplines sports science students have a wide foundation of knowledge to help them decide which career path would be best suited for them. The careers that a sports science degree can lead to are very broad, but if a prospective student is already sure of their intended career path then they may find some subjects more useful than others – for example, a prospective sports psychologists should consider studying psychology too, while someone hoping to become a dietitian or nutritionist may consider studying food technology. Having a keen interest in sport and exercise is vital and there are so many opportunities to get some work experience in a related field before starting a sports science course, such as helping at a sports club, outdoor pursuits activities, or even working at a gym. As the sports and health industries continue to expand, sports science has rapidly become a popular degree course and it can be used in a variety of different industries, making it a versatile choice of degree. Sports management is a common destination for graduates and makes use of the business and management skills learned on the course, often in positions within sports clubs and organisations. Sport psychology and physiotherapy often require additional qualifications, but roles within these fields are also popular choices for sports science graduates. For those interested in teaching, sports education may be a good choice of career path and there are more and more roles available, from teaching children in a school environment to instructing clients as a personal trainer. In today’s health-conscious world, sports nutritionists also have a vital role to play in keeping sportspeople and athletes in peak condition, and this is another likely career path for sports science graduates. A lot of graduates go into careers as PE teachers, sports coaches, fitness instructors and personal trainers, although the management, organisational and motivational skills that are central to most sports science courses allow sports science graduates to adapt to numerous roles.
