Typical postgraduate specialisms in this subject area include Strength and Conditioning, Sports Injury Rehabilitation, Sports Physiotherapy and other branches of Sport and Exercise Science.
All courses in this subject area have a shared focus on supporting the health and success of people involved in athletic or sporting pursuits.
Beyond this, opportunities for specialisation are highly varied. You might focus on the prevention of injury in a specific sport, or learn to provide medical care and support to individuals recovering from injuries or managing a disability.
