Inter-professional learning (IPL) opportunities are embedded within this programme with some modules being shared with other sport and exercise professionals. Inter-professional learning is when students from different professional areas learn with, from and about each other to improve the quality of care. IPL is vital in supporting you to develop the knowledge, skills and insights necessary for employment within increasingly integrated and complex health and social care settings. Links and knowledge from local, national and international research initiatives are undertaken in the School of Sport and the wider University research institutions. Focus throughout the programme is on the application of clinical exercise physiology practice to real-world contexts, ensuring you develop professional and transferable skills such as communicating test data to patients, motivational behaviour and interpersonal skills that will help you succeed in the workplace. The School of Sport has recently been awarded £5.8m funding to develop teaching facilities. You will have opportunities to study and practice in these state-of-the-art facilities. Research and contemporary evidence based practice is central to all teaching and learning activity within the course to ensure students have the most up to date knowledge upon its completion. This also ensures students have the required skills and knowledge to develop and improve services and their own and others’ practice through the utilisation of contemporary and evidence based techniques.
