A week in the life of a sport and exercise science student
From anatomy and kinesiology lectures to role plays, discover what a typical week looks like as a first-year BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science student at Surrey.
How you'll learn
Your teaching will be delivered through a combination of:
- Group work (e.g. discussion groups)
- Laboratory-based practicals
- Online learning
- Role plays
Outside of these, you’ll be expected to carry out independent study, including coursework, essays, laboratory write-ups and reading.
We’ve also introduced hybrid learning, a mix of online and face-to-face sessions, in light of Covid-19.
"I'm enjoying the anatomy side of the course and the practicals that come with it. I feel that physically going through certain movements really helps me learn."
