    Description

    The course specifically responds to the growing number of job opportunities linked to exercise referral schemes. Health organisations are keen to proactively help people to be healthier so that they require less treatment. There are also wide-ranging job opportunities in the broader health and fitness sector.

    In your first year, you will develop core knowledge in sport and exercise psychology, anatomy, physiology and leadership. In your second year you will extend your skills in these areas and also study ‘Personal Training’ and ‘Injuries and Rehabilitation’. In your final year you will acquire advanced expertise in areas such as ‘Exercise Behaviour Change’ and ‘Physical Activity and Exercise for Special Populations’.

    According to the National Student Survey 2011, 90% of our sports science students find that staff are good at explaining things. During the course we will prepare you for accreditation on the Register for Exercise Professionals as well as for Skills Active qualifications, as appropriate. In addition we focus on enhancing your employability through skills such as teamwork, communication, time management and reflective practice.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
