Strength and Conditioning (MSc/PgDip)

The primary focus of this programme is sporting performance.  However, the application of strength and conditioning principles to diverse areas including pre- and rehabilitation, youth and ageing populations, and other specific and clinical populations is becoming more commonplace. 

By joining this degree, you will have the opportunity to study the application of these principles in your core and option courses, and see them used in a practical setting through a voluntary internship or placement.
