Trying to work out what you can do with your degree can be quite intimidating. How do you choose what to do for a career?
Whether you're interested in sport and exercise (including coaching) or looking for a rehabilitation career in physiotherapy or sports therapy, a degree from our School can lead to you working with people of all ages and backgrounds.
You could help professional athletes improve their personal bests, guide people through their recovery and physical rehabilitation after an injury or medical incident, or inspire a love of sport in children.
Our School will support you to develop and enhance an important range of specialist and transferable skills that will make you suitable for roles in any sector. You can take advantage of opportunities to gain work experience through internal and external placements, take a year to study abroad at a partner institution, and study for additional formal qualifications in your area of interest.
The impact of our physical health on our mental health and wellbeing is becoming increasingly important, especially in a post-pandemic world. The mental and physical impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic will live with us for generations, and you can be at the forefront of supporting people to have healthier and more physically active lives.
