The diversity of students currently studying on both home and overseas programmes reflects the popularity of the courses with a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
Students come from a wide range of professional backgrounds
Many are new graduates aiming to gain postgraduate qualifications in order to be better equipped for the job market. A high number are already health, exercise and/or nutrition professionals looking to promote their personal and vocational development.
Some have committed themselves to one year of full-time study, whilst others are studying part-time alongside their work commitments. The opportunity to study on an international programme is also viewed by many as being an immensely valuable and rewarding experience.
Students come from a wide range of professional backgrounds including: medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, dietetics, teaching, lecturing, health promotion, sport and fitness, exercise & sports science, human biology, nutrition, food science, personal training, coaching, emergency services (fire, police & ambulance), psychology, journalism, finance, business, social work, engineering and armed forces.
The programmes give access to postgraduate/post-experience study through a flexible admission policy, facilitating not only those with previous undergraduate experience but also those with appropriate professional, non-graduate qualifications.
The modular structure of the programmes also allows flexibility of learning. Students are able to select modules which are both of interest and give a range of teaching and assessment experiences. For part-time students, the sequencing of taught modules also facilitates integration with work commitments.
