Our programmes will equip you with the knowledge and analytical skills you'll need for a career in sports science. You'll study a wide range of areas, from anatomy and biomechanics to nutrition and sports psychology.

You can study for a physical education and sports degree in a number of ways: full-time, part-time, or on a sandwich course which includes a sports industry related placement. We also offer an extended degree with a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study.

"Fairytale" start in football management


Brothers Danny and Nicky Cowley, both Greenwich graduates, have their sights on the Premier League after taking over at Huddersfield in September 2019.

Communities and societies

Our active student-led societies offer a space for personal and academic growth, as well as new opportunities to make lasting friendships. Students can take part in activities throughout the year, both through the department and via the wider Students’ Union.

Research and partnerships

Our research explores the development of sport and physical education, from evaluating the impact of primary school sport to how we engage communities in sport and physical activity. Specialist projects include exploring the benefits of dance therapy for children on the autistic spectrum.
