Sport and exercise science is the application of scientific principles to the promotion, maintenance and enhancement of sport and exercise-related behaviours. This is a very popular subject to study at university and is among the most commonly applied for science degree subjects in the United Kingdom.

The Applied Sport Science degree at the University of Edinburgh is designed to allow students to develop the knowledge of the place, value and purpose of sport and exercise within society.

Our degree is well established having been developed over many years; it continues to be one of the most sought after sport science programmes in the UK.

My time spent studying at Edinburgh was a very important stage of my career. Not only was I working to improve my physical abilities, I was actually learning about the principles of what I was doing. On my visit today, I was blown-away by the facilities now available to the students here.
