Course content

Become a Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology. Discover the science and applied research approaches needed to study acute and chronic adaptations to exercise, understand physiologic functional capacity in healthy individuals and the diagnosis and rehabilitation of those with chronic disease and disability.

Northumbria’s Clinical Exercise Physiology course will focus on the use of exercise for assessment, prevention, and treatment in a number of diseases and clinical conditions. During this course you will develop an understanding of the physiological factors associated with diseases and the underlying aetiology and pathophysiology of diseases. Our Clinical Exercise Physiology MSc will prepare you to be able to improve a person’s physical status and quality of life through individualised assessment, exercise prescription and behaviour change interventions in the dual context of clinical pathology (acute and chronic) and enhancement of daily living activities. You will also gain insight into how to interpret research and guidelines and understand how to design and conduct research in accordance with good clinical practices.

During this masters course you will put your skills into practice by working in a clinical or community setting and getting to grips with client/patient interaction. Our physiology lab, teaching lab and bio-mechanics lab will equip you with a full range of skills in physiology, in high demand by employers. The clinics will teach you how to work with patients and make a diagnosis, as well as know which kind of exercise is geared towards which patient demographic.

On completion of this course, you will possess the necessary knowledge and skills to assess an individual’s physical status and quality of life to provide a bespoke solution to enhance their daily living. You will begin training as an exercise physiologist from the outset of the academic year, to ensure that you graduate prepared and confident for the world of work.

Northumbria University is the only provider of this Clinical Exercise Physiology Master’s program in the North East and boasts excellent links with key organisations to further support your development and knowledge.

Based in our state-of-the-art British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) approved facilities, you will learn in an industry standard, inspirational environment.

This practical-skills based master’s is designed with employment in mind. Our graduates have gone on to scientist-in-training pathways with the NHS, PhD study and a range of careers in health and well-being physiology.
