UWTSD offers an exciting portfolio of courses linked to sporting activities, healthy lifestyles, physical education and outdoor adventure education. A careful synthesis of physical practice underpinned by academic study is a fundamental characteristic of each programme of study.
Course development within this area has been led by UK and Welsh Government policies linked to health promotion, evidence-based practice and concern over low levels of physical activity within the population. It highlights the inclusive, performance and vocational-related focus of all the courses.
UWTSD is home to the Wales Academy for Health and Physical Literacy and the Centre for Health and Ageing.
