On this Human and Applied Physiology course at University of Portsmouth , you'll study physiological responses to exercise – both in healthy and clinical populations, and in response to extreme environments too. You'll also examine the role of exercise as part of a treatment programme.
You'll graduate with a postgraduate degree in a subject-specific discipline of physiology, and with the knowledge, skills and experience you need to work as a physiologist, a specialised technician, or to pursue a career in biomedical research and medicine.
The skills you'll develop on this course will help you pursue a career as a:
- Health and wellbeing physiologist
- Health advisor
- Clinical exercise physiologist
- Exercise referral coordinator
- Personal trainer
- PhD researcher leading to employment as a professional scientist
You can also choose to pursue professional qualifications in exercise for clinical populations, such as cardiac rehabilitation or pulmonary rehabilitation. Your experience of physiological responses in normal conditions as well as extreme environments will place you in a strong position for a career in the Science and Technology branch of the Ministry of Defence, or in the English Institute of Sport and UK Sport.
