Course Summary

This course is an emerging discipline and this MSc offers you chance to carry out progressive research to further advance the field. Students are supported throughout by teaching staff active in research that is critical to our understanding of the subject. The course is designed for a wide variety of groups, including sports and exercise science graduates, personal trainers, health workers, nurses and physiotherapists. Students gain an understanding of the science behind clinical exercise physiology and develop an extensive range of laboratory skills. We offer opportunities to apply the scientific knowledge you learn to real-life settings. We have strong links with the NHS, the City Healthcare Partnership and the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences giving you the opportunity to undertake work placements and work with national and international leaders in the field. This course has been designed to allow flexible study, enabling professionals to continue working. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.

Future prospects: This programme is designed to help embed the theories and practice of exercise physiology in health workers; Many people undertaking this programme of study may already work for the health service or within the sports industry. For these students, the course will strengthen your CV and enable further professional development as you become an expert in your field. People who do not already work in the sector may seek employment within the NHS, or for private healthcare providers including BUPA and Nuffield Health, or as sports rehabilitators.
