    Pre-requisites: L4: Human Physiology / L4: Exercise, Nutrition and Health
    This module explores key principles of physiological processes in sport and exercise, and builds on the knowledge and understanding provided by level 4 modules and further explores the energy systems and their relative metabolic contribution to sport and exercise metabolism. Students will gain an insight into the fundamental aspects of exercise metabolism and a sound understanding of physiological responses to acute and chronic exercise practices. A ?hands-on? learning approach will be applied via regular laboratory practical exposure enabling students to gain confidence in a laboratory setting and become au fait with essential protocols and practices applied in the field of sports and exercise.
    Assessment: Lab Report (50%) ; Exam (50%).
