Difference between Sport Studies and Sport science?Watch
I'm doing an access to sports studies course, but am looking to study sports science at Uni.
Hope I've helped a bit.
Sports Science : "how long is a plimsoll ? "
Sport Science is more science based and is heavily theory based, looking at the physiological, psychological and muscular functions. Alot to do with reactions in muscles and HOW the body exercises and what allows it to do so.
Sport Studies will be less 'biology' and look a more of a social science side to sport and will more than likely link more to a practical situation rather than in depth science. But both courses are quite similar and sports studies still includes a reasonable degree of the biology of exercise.
Hope that helped.
If you are looking to become a sports physiotherapist what would you take for A-level, sport science or sport studies? Thanks
If you are interested in physiotherapy I would suggest taking Sport Science at A-level. I am a current third year Sport and Exercise Science student at the University of Lincoln. Sport Science should give you an insight into some of the anatomy and physiology which will be useful going forward if you are thinking about becoming a physiotherapist.
Hope this helps, good luck with your studies.
