The underpinning philosophy of this programme is to provide students with clear links between the theoretical and the practical, and to develop the necessary skills for students to work effectively in an applied sport and/or exercise science setting. This programme promotes a blend of theoretical, practical, experiential, reflective and professional approaches to sport (performance) and exercise (health).

Additional opportunities
The programme provides multiple opportunities for additional professional development through engagement with the BASES Supervised Experience programme, ISAK anthropometry training and research and consultancy opportunities with sports teams.

A diverse range of teaching methods are employed including lectures, seminars, workshops, case studies, practical sessions, tutorials, e-learning and individual project supervision. All supplement the students' own independent study.

A wide variety of assessment types are used. These include written assignments (including essays and case studies); presentations (including oral and poster presentations); portfolios (a flexible combination of assessment types which usually include providing evidence of acquired skills/competencies and critical reflection on personal development); projects; examinations and research proposals. Students also complete a substantial independent research project.

At the University of Winchester validated programmes may adopt a range of means of assessing your learning. An indicative, and not necessarily comprehensive, list of assessment types you might encounter includes essays, portfolios, supervised independent work, presentations, written exams, or practical performances. The University is committed to ensuring that all students have an equal opportunity to achieve module learning outcomes. As such, where appropriate and necessary, students with recognised disabilities may have alternative assignments set that continue to test how successfully they have met the module's learning outcomes. Further details on assessment types used in the programme you are interested in can be found on the course page, by attending an Open Day/Evening, or contacting our teaching staff.

Graduates go on to work in sport and/or exercise science support or performance sport support. Others enter careers in teaching, leisure, education, research and/or health.
