Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation at University of Leeds has a strong emphasis on developing skills for practice as a specialist and practical application within exercise and rehabilitation environments. 


Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation at University of Leeds is based in the sport and exercise sciences department which has a wealth of expertise in the area of rehabilitation, with students being taught by some of the country’s leading sport and exercise scientists.  

Researchers in sport and exercise sciences use exercise as a fundamental physical challenge to gain insight into normal biological control processes and functional adaptability. 

This is fundamental to understanding the dynamic relationship between activity patterns, physical and mental health, predisposition to and recovery from chronic conditions (such as: cardiorespiratory diseases, diabetes and cancer) across the lifespan.

Career opportunities

There’s an increasing demand for people skilled in the knowledge of biological sciences applied to healthcare in the form of medical and exercise. 

The knowledge of innovative use of fresh developments in the fields of data gathering and analysis is critical and is leading to a drive forward towards an innovative and disruptive technological development for improving diagnosis with translational benefits ranging from promotion of physical activity to rehabilitation strategies.

Upon completion of this programme you’ll be well-placed to undertake a PhD in this field or as junior research assistants if working in an academic or industrial environment. 

You’ll also be qualified to undertake a career in exercise rehabilitation and other healthcare related occupations both within and outside the NHS. 

Employment within the field of sport and exercise could include preparation and recovery at both the novice and elite level.
