Physical Activity and Health - Edinburgh Napier University

Become a professionally recognised practitioner changing lives for the better. A 2012 study in the Lancet highlighted that inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for non-communicable, chronic disease such as cardiovascular disease, types of cancer, obesity and type 2 diabetes and accounts for over 3 million preventable deaths per year, this includes depressive symptoms and poor mental well-being. The NHS is overrun with these diseases, but in many cases they can be effectively prevented or managed through physical activity. Our degree has been developed to teach our students how physical activity and exercise can do this. We have developed this multidisciplinary degree in line with the professional standards set out by CIMSPA and it delivers exactly what employers are looking for. We will help you develop your scientific understanding and practical skills for a successful career in the health and fitness industry or postgraduate study.
