 Sport, Health and
 Exercise Science at Hull
 This rapidly growing department specialises in sport and exercise science
 courses and the interface of these with athletes and coaches as well as an
 exercising population. Benefiting from rising numbers of staff, along with
 expanding facilities and state-of-the-art equipment, we have been able to
 offer well-resourced and comprehensive degree courses. These courses reflect
 the latest developments within the sport, health and leisure industries.

 A centre of excellence for the region
 The Department of Sport, Health and Exercise Science has teamed up with the
 newly established Hull York Medical School (HYMS) to develop a centre for sporting
 and scientific excellence. A state-of-the-art Health and Human Performance
 Laboratory has recently been built to provide support for sportsmen, sportswomen,
 their coaches and their fitness advisers, and for the study of the sport and exercise
 sciences in the broadest sense. The laboratory already offers a full range of sport
 science support, including fitness and performance profiling, biomechanical
 analysis, lifestyle and psychological counselling, rehabilitation and other medical
 support, and various coach education programmes.

 Recognised quality
 Our degrees are certified and approved by the country’s leading national bodies in
 the discipline. The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, for example,
 endorses our degrees in Sport and Exercise Science and Sports Coaching and
 Performance, while our Sports Rehabilitation programme is accredited by the
 British Association of Sports Rehabilitators and Trainers.

 Supporting local sport
 We aim to provide sport science support to local performers, including those
 involved in the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme, both at the elite level and for
 those aspiring to elite performance. This support is delivered both at our sport
 science laboratories and at local sporting clubs. The department has forged a
 number of productive links with local professional sports clubs, including Hull City
 Football Club and Hull Kingston Rovers Rugby League Club. The department also
 strives to develop community links through coach education programmes offered
 within local facilities. The links with sporting clubs and associations provide our
 students with additional scope to develop practical skills and to gain experience of
 working as a sport scientist.                                                                          Sport, health and exercise science   1
  Our Exercise Physiology Research
   Laboratory boasts a wide range
  of high-spec equipment, including
   automated spectrophotometers,
 micro-plate readers, a haematology
      analyser, blood lactate and
    glucose analysers and a blood
        gas/electrolyte analyser.
   The lab’s treadmill is capable of
   speeds up to 40 km/h with 30%
     incline. Such equipment is an
absolute necessity when working with
 elite athletes – as we frequently do.
Our students can benefit by participating in research projects carried out by staff. Providing an opportunity to learn more advanced lab skills and
to see the steps involved in the research process, this is invaluable when it comes to the undergraduate dissertation in the third year.

 Sports rehabilitation is a concept relatively new to the UK and was introduced as a    the latest
 degree subject at Hull in 2004. The course provides graduates with the necessary       developments within
 skills, knowledge and training to undertake specific training and rehabilitation        the sport, health and
 programmes for injured athletes.                                                       leisure industries.
 An applied, reflective and problem-solving approach to assessments and evidence-
 based musculoskeletal management is utilised throughout the course. It
 incorporates subjects such as applied anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, manual
 therapy, electrotherapy, remedial exercise therapy, exercise physiology, sports
 nutrition and training techniques. Fieldwork placements constitute a significant
 component of the course in Years 2 and 3, developing both interpersonal and
 clinical skills.

 The training gives the graduate sports rehabilitator the necessary skills to provide
 prevention, accurate assessment and diagnosis of injuries, and the rehabilitation
 techniques to get the athlete back to maximum performance in the shortest time
 possible. The degree course is accredited with the British Association of Sports
 Rehabilitators and Trainers. A current first-aid certificate is normally required.

 BSc Sports Coaching and Performance
 This new course will be of particular interest to those wishing to enter an applied
 area such as sports coaching or physical education, whether it be with children,
 adolescents or adults.

 Following a first-year programme of modules that is shared with the BSc Sport and
 Exercise Science course, there is specialised second- and third-year study for
 coaching students. During these two years, you will address issues such as the
 pedagogical, psychological and sociological aspects of coaching behaviour, the role
 of performance analysis in the coaching process, and the application of training
 theory principles to sport.

 In addition to the taught element of the course, you will have the opportunity to
 undertake a formal work experience module. You will also have the opportunity to
 gain coaching qualifications and participate in voluntary coaching activities.                                                                           Sport, health and exercise science

                                         Our Single Honours courses have been designed to offer three distinctive
                                         educational routes. Students on major/minor courses also have the
                                         opportunity to specialise in one of these routes during their third year.

                                         Sport and Exercise Science
                                         The aim of the Single Honours course is to impart an advanced understanding of at
                                         least two of the three core disciplines of sport science: these are biomechanics,
                                         exercise physiology, and sport and exercise psychology. Typically students who
                                         follow this route have career aspirations within sport, exercise and health. You may
                                         wish to complete a higher degree in sport science or more specifically in the health
                                         and exercise field.

                                          Some of our areas of
                                          Sport, Health and Exercise Psychology
                                          The modules that make up this strand examine the contribution that psychology
                                          can make to our understanding of sport/exercise participation and performance,
                                          and to our understanding of human cognition and behaviour in sport. They focus
                                          on the psychology in sport psychology and offer an in-depth understanding of the
                                          athlete and exerciser.

                                          Anatomy and Human Physiology
                                          These units aim to introduce the basic anatomy of joints and muscles, and include
                                          consideration of the physiology of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems,
                                          kidney and fluid balance and the nervous system. Second- and third-year modules
                                          examine such topics as the biochemistry of exercise and the mechanisms that
                                          control energy metabolism.

                                          Research Methods
                                          These modules aim, first, to develop an understanding of research design,
                                          methodology and analysis using qualitative and quantitative approaches. They
                                          include work in both experimental and descriptive methodologies and involve the
                                          application of statistical tests and forms of survey method with real data. Later
                                          modules provide the skills to conduct empirical studies of individuals and groups.

                                          Introduction to Coaching Pedagogy
                                          explores the teaching and learning process in sport – an issue that is fundamental
                                          to coaching success, whether in elite or recreational, adult or junior, settings – and
                                          examines the complex nature of pedagogical practice in coaching. As well as

                                          analysis of human movement in sport and health. The first module considers the
                                          application of functional anatomy to movement analysis. In Years 2 and 3 a fuller
                                          understanding of movement technique analysis is developed in various sports, and
                                          performance factors are examined using film and force analysis. In Year 3, you also

     Individual support
     ‘One of the second- or third-year students helped us get settled. Because there are
     relatively few sport, health and exercise science students, we get individual
     attention and are not treated as simply a number. At Hull we can also get some of
     the best careers guidance in the country.’

     On-site facilities
     ‘At Hull the sports facilities, sport science laboratories, lecture rooms, library,
     Computer Centre and students’ union building are all on site and within a short
     walk of one another.’
