Course description

Are you one of life’s adventurers or thinking of a career in Adventure based sport? If so, then this is the course for you! 

You may have dreamt of climbing Everest, wondered what ‘it takes’ to Big Wall climb in Yosemite or perform successful Glacial travel in Antarctica. You may have Ice climbed in Norway, walked the 15 peaks of Wales, or completed Trad climbing in the UK. Perhaps you dream of Sailing the Atlantic, Surfing ‘Jaws’, or Kayaking the Conwy Valley? Maybe you’re interested in undertaking an expedition in adventurous terrain or simply excited about Adventure Sport? This course is uniquely designed to help you realise these dreams. 

By providing you with ‘hands on’ experience and understanding of the core Sport Science studies of human responses to adventure environments and performance in adventure sports, you will gain the skills required for a career in the expanding Adventure market. This essential core Sport Science knowledge is uniquely combined with the continuous opportunity to develop your own adventure and outdoor skills. Specifically, as well as learning core Performance and exercise science, you will complete ‘doing’ modules with the emphasis on adventuring out and learning practically. If you want to get out in the mountains, beaches, camp, hike, scramble, winter walk, climb, explore the sea cliffs on foot and from a kayak, and want to do it practically ‘hands on’ through whole days out then this course for you.

Sport science, Exercise science
