Carnegie School of Sport

Sport has the potential to transform lives and unite communities. We are educating the sporting workforce of the future to realise this potential.

Making a difference in and through sport

Welcome to the Carnegie School of Sport. We're one of the largest providers of sports courses in UK higher education. We cover everything from the science of performance, to the techniques used by inspiring coaches.

You'll learn in a supportive environment of dedicated and diverse peers, and be guided by nationally-and-internationally renowned teachers and industry experts.

We're proud of our research and its potential to transform global industries and local communities. We work collaboratively with our partners to improve policy and practice. From our leading work on talent development and anti-doping, to our studies on gender equality, ageing and obesity, we're looking to apply out knowledge to address some of the key issues facing our communities.

Carnegie School of Sport Sport students from Leeds Beckett University share their experiences of making friends in their first year, studying in a £45 million state-of-the-art building, and learning alongside athletes, coaches, and industry professionals.
