    I'm planning on studying BTEC Level 3 Sport and Exercise Science at college in September. I have a few questions;

    How in depth is the science [I prefer a lot of science]?
    Is it considered advantageous to universities for Sport Science?
    What are the first year modules?

    Any comments on the course are appreciated. Thank you.

    Hey Ryan!

    I've never studied the BTEC in Sport and Exercise Science, but I've just had a cheeky look at the specifications now and I think they provide some answers. The science in the BTEC isn't that in-depth: it's not as in-depth as you'd expect with a BTEC or A-level in the hard sciences, but nor is it completely shallow. It covers the basics of exercise physiology, anatomy and psychology - enough to give you a fundamental understanding of exercise and how it all works, but not quite enough to let you argue about particulars.

    Something like this would be looked upon favourably if you planned to go to uni to study something like Sports Science or P.E., but it won't be all that strong if you decide you're interested in another unrelated course!!

    The modules can all be found on the Pearson website! Googling the name of the course will bring you to the proper page on the website.
