Sport and Exercise Degrees at Salford
Sport, exercise and rehabilitation are major global industries
For those at the cutting edge of athletic performance, sport scientists provide specialist technical support and guidance to optimise and maximise physical function, working predominantly with trained individuals or groups. More broadly, as part of a drive to increase the health and wellbeing of a largely inactive and unhealthy UK population, exercise scientists devise and deliver physical activity and nutritional interventions to improve health outcomes and enhance quality of life for general populations and those with chronic disease. In clinical settings, sports rehabilitators are well-positioned to design and deliver treatment programmes for individuals across a broad spectrum, from those with chronic illness to elite athletes returning to sport following injury or trauma.
For these reasons, career opportunities for those with interests in sport, exercise and rehabilitation are increasing dramatically in range and scope.

From joining a club or society, to taking part in a gym class, to meeting up with friends for lunch in Atmosphere bar and café: when you're not working on your next assignment or research project, you can be enjoying the perks of being on campus at the University of Salford.
Living in student accommodation is a great way to get settled into university life and meet new people. We've got some great accommodation options to choose from, including Peel Park Quarter - recently voted one of the best halls of residence in the UK.
