Dr Danny Taylor - Programme Leader
I teach across a number of related undergraduate and postgraduate modules within the School of Sport and Exercise Science, whilst also serving as the Programme Lead for Sport and Exercise Science. My research interests include pace regulation and optimisation during multi-modal exercise, the combined physiological and perceptual demands of sport, exercise and physical activity, and the efficacy of commonly utilised sports, exercise and/or physical therapy interventions in sporting and/or clinical populations.Academic Staff List

How You Study
What You Need to Know
We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
An Introduction to Your Modules
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
How you are assessed
The University of Lincoln’s Human Performance Centre offers excellent facilities to meet the academic needs of our students. Our experienced staff have academic and professional expertise in a range of areas including sport and exercise physiology, sports biomechanics, sports psychology, coach education, and sports nutrition. Each key discipline has its own dedicated laboratory or practical space, with each housing a wide range of modern equipment and tools associated with applied sports science practice.
Students can access specialist equipment in the Centre, which contains multiple sports laboratories and an ‘endless pool’. High-profile sports organisations have used the facilities, including British Canoeing and British Ice Skating.
Resources include physiology and biochemistry laboratories, a biomechanics laboratory, a motor control laboratory incorporating a golf specific analysis area, coach education suite, an interview and consultation suite, and British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) accredited staff.
At the end of their second year, students have the option to apply to complete a ‘study abroad’ or ‘placement’ year in industry (e.g. professional sports club) as part of the degree. Students will be responsible for covering the costs associated with placements, including travel, accommodation, and cost of living.
“I felt I was seen as an individual instead of a number… lecturers make an effort to know all their students as individuals and go above and beyond to help us.”Lauren Oram, Sport and Exercise Science student
