Postgraduate study in Clinical Exercise Physiology

What can you study in Clinical Exercise Physiology?

The Clinical Exercise Physiology programme provides practical experience through a range of health and rehabilitation clinical practice-related topics to manage clinical conditions with exercise.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci) and Master of Science (MSc) specialising in Clinical Exercise Physiology prepare you with the academic and clinical experience in the application of exercise for people with a wide range of health conditions or disease.

Postgraduate study in Clinical Exercise Physiology concentrates on a strong core of Exercise Sciences courses, which also include 200 hours of clinical training for the PGDipSci and 400 hours for the MSc.  You will have the opportunity to develop skills and learn about:

  • The delivery of exercise rehabilitation services to clinical populations
  • The principles of exercise physiology

In 2015 the US Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Educations Programs (CAAHEP) accredited our Clinical Exercise Physiology programme. This level of accreditation is the highest available internationally and means that graduates of the masters programme are able to sit the American College of Sport Medicine exam to become a registered clinical exercise physiologist.
