About

The aim of the Sport and Exercise Science and Medicine programme of the University of Glasgow is to provide you with an advanced, research-led programme of study in Sport & Exercise Science & Medicine. A key strength of this programme is its flexibility, enabling you to specialise in physical activity and health, sports performance, or sports medicine.
