Scott Burnet

Senior Lecturer


Scott is a senior lecturer in sport and exercise physiology. He graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2000 with a BSc (Hons) in sports science. Upon graduating, Scott worked at the University of Winchester for five years as the laboratory technician to the sports studies department. While there, he successfully completed a part-time master's degree in sport and exercise physiology which enabled him to incorporate part-time lecturing into his job role.

Since 2005, Scott has worked at Thames Valley University; Queen Mary’s University, London; and London Metropolitan University in either a technical or academic context. In 2008 Scott joined the health, exercise and sports science team at Solent University as a lecturer in research methods and physiology. He currently teaches exercise physiology and research methods units across a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

In support of his teaching, Scott completed his postgraduate certificate in learning and teaching in higher education (PGCinL&T) at the University of West London (formerly Thames Valley University). He is currently working towards senior fellowship of the Higher Education Academy and a part-time PhD investigating the quantitative methods provision on sport and exercise science courses within the UK. Alongside his teaching and research responsibilities Scott is the Level 4 tutor for the BSc (Hons) Applied Sports Science and BSc (Hons) Sport Performance Coaching courses and is the Chair of the Health, Exercise and Sports Science Ethics Committee.
