Teaching takes place at the Parkgate Road campus.
Our combined Biology course offers a range of subjects and unique experiences due to close partnerships with organisations such as Chester Zoo and other leading institutes, industries and charities. We supplement classroom learning with opportunities for work placements or fieldwork. There are also opportunities to take part in exciting laboratory-based research.
In recent years, the sports, recreation and leisure industries have shown continued growth. International success and the growing health agenda has ensured that investment and interest in sport and exercise in the UK continues to increase substantially.
Therefore, the course is designed with two core principles in mind. Firstly, the development of knowledge, applied skills and analytical techniques in the conventional sub-disciplines of sport and exercise sciences. Secondly, the orientation of studies around vocational opportunities and practices, including PE, sports management, development, coaching, health promotion, leisure and recreation, as well as sport science support and sport and exercise sciences generally.
For the latest example of curriculum availability on this degree programme please refer to the University of Chester's Website.
For Sport & Exercise Science, we use a wide portfolio of assessment methods, including examinations, essays, tests, presentations and laboratory practicals. These are designed to assess both academic knowledge and prepare students for specific, relevant vocations.
For Biology, assessment consists of coursework and end-of-module examinations (typically 50:50 in a module). Coursework can include practical reports, fieldwork, extended essays, presentations, posters or seminars.
