Getting Started

Welcome to your Subject Guide, where you'll find tailored guidance and advice on key library resources.

Referencing within Sport and Exercise Sciences

The BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences programme uses the Harvard Referencing style. 

The BSc and MSc Sport Psychology programmes use the American Psychological Association (APA) style for most modules. However, for some non-psychology based modules, Sport Psychology students may be required to use the Harvard  style. Please speak with your module convener if you have questions about which style to use. 

Full details and examples of both styles can be found on Cite Them Right.

For further help and guidance with referencing, see the Library's Referencing guides
