Sport and Exercise Physiology

Sport and Exercise Science is also playing an increasingly important role in society by promoting exercise for healthy ageing and the prevention of premature death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity. This master's programme is ideal if you want to go on to specialise in physiology-related studies at a doctoral level for academic and professional development or if you aspire to a professional career in performance-orientated training.
