Sport Science

Sport Science

Sports science is the study of how the healthy human body works during exercise, and how sport and physical activity promote health, physically, mentally and socially.

The study of sport science incorporates many other academic studies and areas, like physiology, psychology, anatomy, engineering and chemistry.

Digging deeper into subject interests can help you in a number of ways:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.
