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 and health workers, including 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 and students have the option of undertaking work placements with local health services. We have strong links with the NHS and the City Healthcare Partnership (www.chcpcic.org.uk). The University also has links with the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences giving you the opportunity to work with national and international leaders in the field.
