A degree in Sport and Exercise Science or Clinical Exercise Physiology will give you the opportunity to work in a rewarding career in a variety of settings. Graduates from Sport and Exercise Science (SES) and Exercise Physiology (Clinical) courses have a strong understanding of the processes and mechanisms underlying human physical activity with a focus on the role of exercise for health and disease management (Clinical) or for the enhancement of human performance in occupational, sport, exercise and leisure settings (SES). We have a particular focus on the relationship between exercise and health in rural, remote, and tropical environments.
