Visit the official programme website for more information


This is one of the specialist routes within the sports portfolio at Abertay. You’ll make your choice of specialist route at the end of stage two of the BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise programme.

Strength and Conditioning (Hons) course at Abertay University  is an integral component for sport organisations across a wide range of amateur and professional sports, although the role of the S&C practitioner extends beyond the traditional provision of strength training – it’s not simply confined to sport organisations.

The deep understanding of the sciences behind training and performance required to be a successful S&C specialist are equally applicable to work with young people, the elderly and those either suffering from, or at risk of, developing a number of disease states.

You’ll have access to our Human Performance Laboratory, with running, rowing, fitness testing and weights machines. You’ll also have opportunities to meet the numerous professional sportsmen and sportswomen who draw on the expertise of our lecturing staff within this facility.

Career Opportunities 

Graduates from this programme are well equipped to obtain employment across a wide range of vocations. For example, as strength and conditioning practitioners in community and professional sport organisations, as well as other public and private non-sport organisations. 

This programme will also help develop a range of transferable skills to prepare you to take on a variety of professional challenges across diverse working environments. In addition, you'll have acquired the necessary knowledge and expertise to pursue postgraduate studies in a related area.
