The MSc Clinical Exercise Physiology course from The University of Hull is designed for a wide variety of groups, including sports and exercise science graduates, personal trainers, health workers, nurses and physiotherapists.
Students gain an understanding of the science behind clinical exercise physiology and develop an extensive range of laboratory skills.
We offer opportunities to apply the scientific knowledge you learn to real-life settings. We have strong links with the NHS, the City Healthcare Partnership and the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences giving you the opportunity to undertake work placements and work with national and international leaders in the field.
Students will also undertake a significant research project which they will deliver to an end-of-year postgraduate conference.
The programme is available at postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma and masters level. The MSc has been designed to allow flexible study, enabling professionals to continue working.
What you'll study
The course combines theory and practice to focus on advanced exercise physiology, clinical exercise testing and training, exercise prescription, pathophysiology of disease and exercise adherence. It includes phlebotomy, submaximal exercise testing and electrocardiography.
Students can complete a placement with one of our regional network clinical healthcare providers. Each student will undertake a significant research project delivered to an end of year postgraduate conference.
This programme is designed to help embed the theories and practice of exercise physiology in health workers.
Many people undertaking this programme of study may already work for the health service or within the sports industry. For these students, the course will strengthen your CV and enable further professional development as you become an expert in your field.
People who do not already work in the sector may seek employment within the NHS, or for private healthcare providers including BUPA and Nuffield Health, or as sports rehabilitators.
