Exercise Physiology program structure

You can study physiology at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral level. BSc programs are studied over three or four years. The duration of your course will depend on your university, country of study, and whether you choose to participate in an additional 12-month industry placement.

If you’ve chosen the US as your study abroad destination, your undergraduate degree will take four years to finish. In line with the liberal arts model, you’ll spend two years taking general education courses, before focusing on physiology-specific classes in the final half of your program.

Once you’ve got a bachelor’s degree in your pocket, you might want to extend your knowledge and boost your career prospects with a postgraduate qualification. An MSc can be studied over one or two years, while a PhD normally takes between five and six years of work.

As an exercise physiology student, your schedule will mainly consist of lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratory sessions and practical workshops. Your progress will be assessed through a mixture of exams, written coursework, presentations and research projects.

Thanks to the wide range of elective modules on offer, exercise physiology programs can easily be tailored to reflect your interests and ambitions. However, most courses will introduce students to these fundamental topics:

  • Physiology of sports performance
  • Human anatomy
  • Human biochemistry
  • Laboratory techniques in exercise physiology
  • Gerontology
  • Pharmacology
  • Nutrition, energy and metabolism
  • Chemistry of exercise
