Our Sport Science and Human Physiology degree covers the science of sport and the physiology of human performance. It’s a fascinating combination that brings together expertise from our Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences and our School of Healthcare Science – giving you access to a wide range of teaching expertise and high-spec facilities. By the time you graduate, you’ll have the skills and understanding for employment in sports and health fields.
Study Sport Science and Human Physiology at Manchester Met and you’ll explore how the human body works, focusing on physical activity and health. You’ll be immersed in scientific investigation, and we’ll show you how to develop an evidence-based approach to both the theory and the practice of these subjects.
You’ll gain a well-rounded understanding of sport science, with the kind of skills and knowledge that will prepare you for a range of professional environments in the world of sport and physical activity. This will be supported by detailed knowledge of biology and physiology underpinning human movement. You'll also have the opportunity to spend an extra year expanding your horizons, working on a placement in industry.
In your final year, you’ll have the chance to work alongside one of our experts on research or an applied project where you can criticise, analyse and interpret information, or even collect your own unique data in a topic related to sports or physiology that matches your own interests.
