About this course


Course option

2years

Full-time | 2019

The area of health and fitness for preventing and managing chronic diseases is expanding and is an area of employment with increasing opportunities. The course has a focus on health and fitness promotion in community through lifestyle and behavioural changes whilst incorporating traditional training with modern strength and conditioning methods often reserved for sporting athletes. This distinguishes it from more traditional sport science courses which focus only on sport performance.

The course has excellent links with numerous fitness centres, sports clubs, governing bodies and organisations in the region to enable students to obtain the necessary experience they require to increase employability. There are opportunities to apply for internships and additional qualifications.

Teaching methods include practical work, group activities, lectures, workshops, problem solving activities, e-learning seminars plus external visits and guest speakers. Students will demonstate their knowledge, skills and abilities through a range of assessment methods that will enhance their learning experience and develop valuable employability skills.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
