More course information

Physical Education offers an exciting opportunity for students who have a passion for sport and want to understand how to improve performance through theory. The theory aspect of the course is broken down into 6 main areas which are examined through two written papers. The areas of study are: Applied Anatomy & Physiology, Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics including Technology, Skill Acquisition, Sport Psychology and Sport and Society. As a result of studying the above sections of the course, you will gain an understanding of how the body works during sport, how skills and techniques are acquired and utilised within sport and also the current issues surrounding sport. For the practical assessment you will be expected to perform one sport and an oral piece of coursework about your sport which has 30% weighting of the overall course.
