The course includes core studies in human structure, function and behaviour before further study on the acute and chronic physiological and psychological responses to exercise. Analytical, technical and professional skills are developed in the areas of movement analysis, health and fitness assessment and exercise training for health and performance.

Graduates are recognised for their expertise in the design and implementation of exercise interventions to prevent disease and improve athletic performance.
