Sport & Exercise Sciences

Help the body perform to its full potential. Apply science to sport to make it better, faster and stronger.

Our environmental chamber is the largest facility of its kind in Scotland, and can replicate high-altitude conditions up to the equivalent of Everest Base Camp.

100% of graduates were in work or further study 15 months after graduation in the latest review (HESA 2019/20).


We have exclusive partnerships with Scottish FA, Scottish Rugby and Scottish Gymnastics; and helped to found the Scottish Mountain Biking Centre.


We are the biomechanics partner for the R&A, the governing body of golf for most of the world.
