School of Sport Studies, Leisure and Nutrition

Providing cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research

Our staff are closely aligned with the University mission: research unified with teaching.

We actively publish our work: editing and writing contributions for peer reviewed journals, books and monographs. Staff are regularly represented at local, regional and international conferences giving presentations, organising panels and as key subject leads for reviewing submissions. A large number of staff are involved in professional associations and groups and use this and their research expertise to inform their curriculum design and delivery.
