About Sport Sciences at Brunel

If you are interested in studying sport in all its diversity and forging a career in sport-related work, we welcome your application to study at Brunel. We recognise that students learn in different ways and we include a wide range of effective learning, teaching and assessment methods. There is a strong link between research and teaching enhanced by Sport Sciences' vibrant research culture with its two research centres, regular seminar programme and visiting scholars. There are staff with national and international reputations for their research and publications and some who are accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), which enables them to work with high performance athletes.

We care about your progress and welfare. Whether you are undecided about which modules to take, unsure about how to apply for a student loan, or need a reference, your personal tutor will be there to help.

We prepare you for a broad range of career opportunities in a wide range of sport-related jobs, in areas such as coaching, consultancy, fitness testing and training, higher education and research, journalism, sport development, sport management, teaching and youth work. In recent years, our graduates have found positions with the UK and regional Sports Councils, national governing bodies of sport, international organisations, professional clubs, local authorities, in the leisure industry, sports clothing/footwear companies, the pharmaceutical industry, the armed forces, and teaching.
