Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
One of the fastest growing subjects in the country, the number of sports science graduates has gone from under 3,000 in 2003 to nearly 9,500 in 2012. However, the good news is the country's appetite for good health and fitness means that sports science grads are less likely than average to be out of work. Sports science graduates, not surprisingly, tend to get jobs in sport and fitness, coaching and teaching especially, but they're found all over the economy. Management is also a popular option for graduates from this subject – after all, this is a degree for people who want to motivate others!
