Sports Science

Liverpool John Moores University’s School of Sport and Exercise Sciences was the first institution in the world to host a single honours degree programme in sport science in 1975. With a world-leading reputation for linking sports science research with public health, Liverpool John Moores University are currently working with the International Olympic Committee to create a global ‘Active Cities’ programme, part of a global campaign waged by physical activity and public health organisations.

They are also collaborating with the KQ Liverpool partners, including The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust (RLBUHT) to bring forward plans for an iconic, global sports science and health campus. The proposed new campus will add further scale to the existing Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences (RISES), whose activity ranges from working with British Cycling, through to physical activity in chronic disease prevention research.

This excellence in sports science and health is aligned to Hope University’s studies in sports injuries and rehabilitation and to the city’s bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
