Sport Studies students were able to gain a unique insight into the Sport Science Faculty at LJMU, and were able to use state-of-the-art laboratory facilities to aid their studies.
LJMU’ sport research is internationally recognised. The faculty is the only Sport and Exercise Sciences Department in the U.K. designated as a Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Learning. Many local professional teams use the facilities to aid training and rehabilitation.

- Strength tests – Looking at hand grip, chest and back strength.
- VO2max tests – A maximum capacity test of an individual's ability to utilise oxygen during an incremental exercise test performed on a treadmill and cycle ergometer .
