Our impact

Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter was ranked 3rd in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework for research quality and intensity in Sport and Exercise Sciences. This bears testament to the breadth and depth of our world class research, which encompasses: biomechanics, physiology, nutrition, psychology and physical activity for health through the lifespan from childhood to old age.

Our research was also judged to have world class impact,  informing cutting edge sports science support for Olympic athletes and the setting of physical activity guidelines to support health through the lifespan. Our world class researchers are also excellent teachers who take great pride in inspiring and training the next generation of sport and exercise scientists.
