Sports Medicine, Exercise & Health MSc

The MSc in Sports Medicine, Exercise and Health, based at the Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH), is designed to give students a broad understanding of sports medicine, sports injuries and exercise prescription in healthy and disease states. The MSc is also available via distance learning for students who wish to study at home - from anywhere in the UK or the world.

It will introduce the key areas relating to sports and exercise medicine, namely musculoskeletal and sports injury, exercise physiology, psychology, working with sporting teams and the promotion of physical activity to prevent and treat disease. 

Students will gain a thorough grounding in the management of injury and of exercise prescription. This will prepare you for potential work in many areas from NHS musculoskeletal clinics and community exercise services to elite sports.

Graduates of the programme will gain a deeper understanding and valuable insights into the key areas of sports injury prevention and management, health and physical activity, and will be able to prescribe exercise safely for a range of medical conditions.
