School of Health & Human Performance

Welcome | Health and Human Performance


Welcome to the School of Health and Human Performance. Since its inception in 1999 the School has undergone rapid growth, now offering four undergraduate degree programmes to approximately
520 students:

These programmes have been designed to provide students with the knowledge base, skills, proficiencies and experiences necessary to begin a professional career or to prepare you for post-graduate studies in your area of interest. The programmes attract high numbers of applicants, both CAO and ‘non-CAO’, with the CAO points being among the highest in the University. As a School we are passionate and committed to providing the best possible learning environment to help you reach your goals.

The School prides itself not only on its excellence in teaching and learning, but also in research. We currently offer post-graduate research programmes in a number of exercise, health, physical education and injury related disciplines in state of the art facilities. Presently we have over 30 post graduate research PhD/MSc students.

The School also aims to have a significant and positive effect on national goals of developing a knowledge society, improving health and quality of life (through physical activity and exercise) and increasing sports participation and performance levels in a society steeped in a culture of sport. To this end we provide external links, to organizations ranging from national sports governing bodies and Government agencies, to local sports clubs and heart health groups
