IB Sports Exercise & Health Science includes the study of:

  • · Anatomy
  • · Exercise physiology
  • · Movement analysis
  • · Energy systems
  • · Skill in sport
  • · Measurement and evaluation of human performance in sport
  • · Optimizing physiological performance
  • · Psychology of sport

This course suits students who have an interest in human biology and how this, alongside psychological factors, contributes to physical performance. Students work collaboratively with others to carry out performance based projects linked to the theory content of the course and analyse their findings. Students don’t necessarily need to be good sports performers as there is no practical assessment of performance. The course provides good preparation for students who might want to work in a healthcare or fitness setting. The course includes a trip to a professional sports science laboratory to look at the performance aids and testing that are used for elite sports men and women.

What do students say?

 "… what I love about the course is that there is a psychological aspect of sport to study, of which I am very interested in and it links very well with the IB HL Psychology course I am taking too! In the future I hope to study Psychology with Sports Science at university so the course is extremely worthwhile. Millie
