What makes a pathway in Sport & Exercise Science at the University of Worcester International College (UWIC) special?
The Institute of Sport and Exercise Science has a proven record of excellence in the field of sport and exercise science, with plenty to offer anyone who has an enthusiasm for sport, exercise and health.
This Institute boasts truly world class facilities – the fact that we were selected as a training base for athletes preparing for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games is testament to the strength of our facilities. We have a multi-purpose indoor sports centre, two floodlit synthetic pitches, an exercise physiology suite, two further sports science laboratories, nutrition laboratory, teaching rooms, gymnasium and dance studio. Recent major developments have seen the introduction of the award-winning Riverside Building and the 2,000 seat Worcester Arena. Our innovative Motion and Performance Centre is situated on the St John's campus and has expertise in a wide range of areas, ranging from Physical Activity, Exercise and Health to Biomechanics and Sport and Exercise Physiology.
The Institute has many sporting links, with a particular strength in basketball. Our men's and women's teams have both enjoyed considerable success, and the British Basketball League professional team the Worcester Wolves are also based on campus. The University also has good links with the region’s sports teams, particularly Worcester Rugby Club, Worcestershire County Cricket Club, Worcester Hockey Club and Worcester Rowing Club.
The University of Worcester is one of the UK’s most supportive universities. We have an established heritage of outstanding teaching.
In 2017 we were ranked among the top 10 universities in the country for sport in Which? University’s independent annual Student Survey.
