As an undergraduate in the School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences, you will be able to explore the fundamental science underpinning your field, gain in-depth knowledge of innovative research and put your learning into practice in a variety of professional settings.
Our School has an excellent reputation for teaching, research, employability, and student satisfaction. Students are placed at the centre of our approach to education, and we work in partnership with them to provide a vibrant and positive learning environment.
Our therapy and sports degrees are shaped by the internationally-excellent research of our staff, along with our experiences of working with individuals, groups and organisations in sport, health and rehabilitation contexts.
Our students not only share in this knowledge, but help to generate new knowledge while gaining a range of skills to equip them for graduate level-employment.
Research-guided teaching, studying abroad in Australia, and the application of knowledge within the Human Performance Unit. These are some examples of the multitude of experiences that have facilitated my learning and academic development as an undergraduate student. It has been a tremendous experience to be in a department dedicated to helping each and every student achieve an excellent degree, with broad employment and further study prospects.
The course really demonstrated to me the importance that science has on sporting performance. The combination of classroom teaching with practical laboratory sessions was essential, as it allows you to become active with the learning and how the objectives apply to athletic situations.
If you apply for a Sports-related degree programme at Essex (Sports and Exercise Science; Sports Performance and Coaching; Sports Therapy), you may get invited to interview.
This provides you with an opportunity to visit the University, have a tour of the campus and our School, receive more information about the degrees, and talk to both staff and students. The interview itself allows you to ask questions as well, so you can be confident that Essex is the right university for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to our School so that we can share our passion for Sport, Exercise and Health.
