"The facilities were great and there were lots of opportunities for work experience. I also enjoyed social nights at The Rocket, the sports days (I used to coach the ladies football team) and all the fantastic people I met. I really had the best time of my life at London Met. I still miss those days!"

More about our courses

The world of sport is synonymous with top athletes, world-class footballers and the multi-billion pound world they perform in. What better place to study sport than next door to one of the world’s top football clubs, Arsenal. Its stadium and training grounds are located a stone’s throw from London Met’s Holloway campus. If you are a sports fan, this could be the dream course for you!

Although a relatively new discipline, sports science has gained in popularity and recognition over the past few decades. By choosing one of our courses you will be stepping into the world of elite sport right through to individual fitness. You’ll be learning about a range of areas, from sports injury and psychology to public health and fitness. 

If dance is what moves you, we also offer a Sports and Dance Therapy degree. This course will give you the skills required to assess, treat and rehabilitate both athletes and dancers.  

Industry and workplace links

We maintain strong relationships with industrial and workplace partner organisations that make the most of our location in London. Many of our courses are also endorsed and accredited by professional bodies.

Many career paths to choose from

Completing a sports science degree with us prepares you for a range of careers spanning the scientific and commercial worlds, from roles in sports management and marketing through to personal training, physiotherapy and nutritional consultancy. Our graduates go on to work for employers such as Arsenal and Chelsea Football Clubs, AFC Wimbledon and Educogym. Others have continued on to a PGCE, enabling them to work in education.

If you decide to combine dance and sports therapy, you will acquire the skills needed to pursue roles such as dance company therapist (in-situ or touring), injury prevention officer for dance schools and companies, or pre- and post-performance masseuse.
