Studying exercise science in the UK provides the opportunity to critically study the evidence base for exercise for health alongside the potential for vocationally-relevant training and experience.
The UK provides world class education for a range of students so there's no better place to gain multicultural experience.
Lifestyle-related non-communicable conditions are increasingly prevalent in developed and developing countries with health care being costly. Being trained to engage people in long term healthy lifestyles can reduce healthcare costs to the individual and societies potentially mitigate the side effects of long term conditions and their treatments.
Appropriately trained and experienced students may remain in the UK following the completion of the degree. Such graduates also return to their home country to apply the still newly emerging field of exercise science as entrepreneurs or in forward thinking organisations.
