Degree in Exercise and Sports Sciences

Presentation

At Alfonso X el Sabio University, Exercise and Sports Sciences students follow 4 educational itineraries: teaching, management, sports performance and health, enabling them to focus their career options in the field best suited to their preferences.

At UAX

This degree course was designed to teach more general subjects in the first two years, with a deeper understanding of sports such as Football, Athletics, Volleyball, Swimming, Handball, Tennis, Basketball and Judo. Later, students choose a curricular itinerary in which to specialise.

Lecturers

The teaching staff consists of doctors and graduates in exercise and sports sciences, law, business administration, medicine, etc. All have extensive professional experience. Most train, or have trained, at high competitive levels in sports such as basketball, athletics, football, judo, swimming, tennis, men’s artistic gymnastics and women’s’ rhythmic gymnastics.

Facilities

There are many spaces where students can carry out practical work, such as the Anatomy Rooms and the Physiology and Sports Biomechanics laboratory. UAX has exceptional sports facilities at the Villanueva de la Cañada campus, where students can practice sports of all kinds. 

Unique features

Students take excursions to mountain areas and ski resorts, and organise activities such as hiking, kayaking and mountain biking across Ibiza. Our partnership with the Spanish Olympic Committee (COE), ACB basketball clubs and football teams gives students total immersion in top level sports.

Employment Opportunities

Students can choose to focus on high performance, as trainers of top competitive teams in different types of sport, physical and personal trainers. Other career openings include teaching, management, running sports institutions, centres, gymnasiums and municipal sports pavilions, exercise and health.
