BSc (Hons) Health and Exercise Science
Please note: This course is no longer available on UCAS, you will need to apply for the BSc (Hons) Sport, Exercise and Health Science and then during your studies choose Health and Exercise as an optional unit.
Please note: This course is no longer on UCAS and will be removed from the website on the 30th November after our next Open Day, to assist communications with potential applicants attending. Following applicant feedback we have combined this course and BSc (Hons) Sport Science into BSc (Hons) Sport, Exercise and Health Science course, so you can choose one course, and then choose optional units allowing a greater focus on elite sport (sport science), health and wellbeing (health and exercise science), or sport and exercise science. This allows you to tailor the course in line with interests.For more details on this change please read: Personalising your degree.
