The UK health and fitness industry is experiencing continual growth. This course will prepare you for a wealth of careers in the health and fitness industry, from working in public health and private gyms, to roles across the range of sectors within the health, fitness and leisure industry. You will learn about the psychology and sociology of health, exercise behaviour and anatomy, physiology and nutrition relating to exercise and health. You will also develop exercise instruction and practitioner skills. Business and marketing modules are included to help you develop skills to set up your own business after graduation and to work effectively in large businesses that operate across the health, fitness and leisure industry. You will be given the opportunity to study for professional qualifications. These include gym-based instructor and personal training fitness qualifications as well as an Exercise Referral qualification, which allows registration onto Level 3 of the Register for Exercise Professionals (REPS). You will undertake two professional work placements with the opportunity to take your first or second year placement in another country, usually within Europe. You can also study abroad, usually in your second year. We currently work with partners in Germany, Spain and Australia, where you can go for one semester to gain credits towards your degree.
