The University of Lincoln’s School of Sport and Exercise Science is noted for its cutting-edge facilities and provides an educational experience within an enthusiastic and supportive environment.
Programmes are available across a range of sport-related subjects. Our teaching is underpinned by scientific research and scholarship, making use of the excellent facilities which support laboratory projects and field investigations. Excellent links exist between the School and industry and professional practices, which offer varied opportunities for work experience within the community.
The Human Performance Centre is used by the School of Sport and Exercise Science and these specialist laboratories feature modern equipment in order to undertake physiological and biomechanical assessments.
The labs are equipped for both the teaching of students, academic research, and also outside consultancy with businesses and elite athletes. The equipment used ranges from treadmills and ergometers, through to gas and lactate measuring equipment, motion detection, impact analysis, and an endless pool.
The labs are located in the same building as the university sports centre, where the School of Sport and Exercise Science is also based, and are available as learning environments for students on the Health and Exercise Science, Physical Education and Sport, Sport and Exercise Science, Sport Development and Coaching, Strength and Conditioning in Sport, Sport Science, and Sport Therapy courses.
Unlike some other universities, our students can use all of the facilities from the first year of their course. Our Human Performance Centre is well supported by four specialist technicians who actively assist within laboratory classes and support students who can book laboratory time for independent study.
