Sport Science at the University of Oldenburg provides a cross section of different disciplines. It is distinguished by its combination of theory and practice, as well as its interdisciplinary character. The primary focus of this degree course is human body movement and behaviour in people of all age groups, milieus, and genders in the diverse forms of modern sport and athletic culture, particularly with regards to pedagogical, sociological, medical, and athletic training oriented perspectives. Issues concerning the meaning of physical movement in educating capable subjects, in lifestyles, and in the (re)production of societal structures are especially relevant to this programme.
Applicants must successfully complete a Sports Suitability Test at the University in order to be admitted. This is a practical exam concerning individual and team sports, as well as an endurance test. Students still have to apply at the Admissions Office (Immatrikulationsamt), regardless of whether or not they have taken a fitness exam. Secondary school leaving certificates or equivalent documents are not needed when applying for a qualifying fitness exam. However, the Admissions Office does need these documents.
