Why choose this course?

This exciting and applied covers the physiological, biomechanical and psychological influences on human performance and health.

This may include elite athletes or clinical populations such as those with obesity or cardiac rehabilitation patients. You will also explore local, national and international public health and sport initiatives that aim to encourage a physically active population.

Olympic superstar Kristian Thomas has added a First Class degree from the University of Wolverhampton to his long list of accolades (September, 2019).


The captain of Great Britain’s men’s gymnastics team at Rio 2016 said: "It’s a very proud moment after three years of hard work to be in the Grand Theatre with my cohort and my peers and the people who have helped me including the academic staff. I was out of education for quite a few years so to come back into it was a little bit daunting but they made that process so seamless. I’m very proud to come to the end of the three years and to come away with a first class honours as well."
