The Carnegie School of Sport, with its 80 year history, has built a strong reputation for teaching and research excellence within sport and physical education.

Our high and inclusive submission rate, coupled with a 47.5% increase in world leading or internationally excellent research activity, demonstrates our commitment to both research excellence and curricula that is taught by academics who are experts in their field.
