Department of Exercise Sciences

Future postgraduates

The Department of Exercise Sciences encourages students to pursue their studies to postgraduate level and to follow their interests by taking the opportunities provided for self-directed research.

Exercise scientists investigate the nature of physical activity and how it changes the human body when it is growing, performing incredible physical feats, ageing, or at risk of disease.

Postgraduate study in the Exercise Sciences is exciting and provides opportunities to: focus your interest in movement neuroscience, biomechanics, exercise physiology, or exercise psychology, and extend your knowledge of how exercise sustains health, improves disease outcomes, and enhances human performance.

Exercise Sciences offers two postgraduate tracks; the primarily research-focused BSc(Hons), MSc and PhD programmes, and the internationally accredited two-year Clinical Exercise Physiology (CEP) programme that can be taken as either a PGDipSci or MSc.
