Looking at degree transfer - and at my university Sport Science is a part of the university biomedicine school and focuses on the medical side of sport science with pure science modules (most of the modules are neuroscience, respiratory physiology, biomechanics, etc) Its a RG uni also so the research is incredible. Compared to other universities such as Loughborough & Sheffield Hallam, it seems the course isn't a conventional sport science course in that there's no specific sport modules (there are some optional ones) - they're all to do with anatomy, neuroscience, cardio/respiratory physiology

I've always had an interest in nutrition and maybe Physiotherapy - but I've been told employment rates for sport science are low & that most people become PT's or Teachers (which I'm not 100% interested in). Additionally some of my friends say i should stick to my degree as it's more respected than sport science & thus will help me in the future (not that I agree with this view) Does anybody have any experience with sport science degrees and what you can achieve afterward? I've not seen much discussion on them on these forums.

I'm not sure about doing medicine? Sport science degrees do have a decent reputation, especially at the top unis such as Loughborough, Exeter, Leeds& Edinburgh

From where you are studying you shouldn't have any issue getting on a pre-reg physio course somewhere? You could also look for work experience offering sport science support?
