Help people and communities lead healthier and happier lives by developing the expertise to promote active lifestyle choices.
Regular physical activity is one of the greatest investments we can make to improve our wellbeing. Governments recognise this, and the drive to inspire people to be more active and minimise the impact of unhealthy lifestyle choices on health services and society in general has seen the demand for suitably trained professionals soar.
You will examine the importance of physical activity across the lifespan, and you will develop the skills to encourage healthy habits from childhood through to adolescence and into adulthood and older age.
You will work with people of all ages to identify health risks related to sedentary behaviours, and you will design and evaluate interventions to improve quality of life and reduce the risks of obesity, diabetes, mental ill-health and other conditions.
