Who Should Study an MSc Clinical Exercise Prescription?

 This master’s degree programme is suitable to study for those who are already working in a similar field or studying in a similar field at an undergraduate level and are looking to continue their studies at the postgraduate level.

While having professional experience is always valuable in any industry, sometimes it takes further study and research to unlock the opportunities that you really want, whether you are working in areas like professional sport or in a clinic with the general population. 

If you are working in professional sport with individual athletes or a team of athletes, this master’s will be a great addition to your skill set, no matter what discipline you have previously trained in. Many of those working in elite-level sports now feel the need to have a firm understanding of multiple disciplines across the injury so as to maximise their value to their employer or potential employers.

If you are someone working in a clinic setting with the general population, this programme will help to enhance your skills and thus make the service you offer to clients of much high quality.

Graduates and professionals from areas such as rehabilitation, nursing, dietetics and nutrition, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, sports science, and physiology backgrounds will find this degree particularly useful in their search for the right qualification to progress in their careers.

Those coming from other disciplines are welcome to apply and shall be assessed for suitability on a case-by-case basis. Those that have relevant clinical experience will be prioritised.
