Program Description

Originally developed at Middlesex University, the first master's degree in Exercise and Physical Activity for Special Populations and Healthy Ageing (MSc) in the UK focuses purely on how to prescribe safe and effective physical activity, exercise, and sporting participation to those living with the 18 most common chronic diseases in the UK and healthy aging.

The health and fitness industry has witnessed an explosion in recent years as more and more people realize the importance of exercise. With this comes new challenges for professionals who must consider the wide range of long-term medical conditions which could impact their clients or patients, and how physical activity can positively aid healthy aging.

Our postgraduate degree promotes cutting-edge professional practice, giving students the opportunity to undertake leading research and acquire the latest knowledge of effective practice prescriptions for special populations, under the supervision of highly experienced experts.

In our partnership with Saracens Rugby Club, you’ll have access to the fantastic resources at StoneX Stadium, including the brand new £23 million redevelopment project of the West Stand which offers state-of-the-art facilities as a top educational and high-performance center for teaching and research excellence. With some of the most advanced equipment in the UK, you will be able to utilize the new specialist spaces, simulation suites, specialist labs, plus much more.

The course in Exercise and Physical Activity for Special Populations and Healthy Ageing has been designed specifically for qualified graduates and health and fitness professionals, so understand that you will bring experience and working knowledge with you. We help you put this into context and develop it. During the course, you will learn how to justify your professional decisions with evidence-based practice and develop your professional understanding and accountability.
