    So originally i wanted to do just a sport science degree and still do but atm i don't want to leave home due to other commitments i have so the courses that are closest to my city are sport and exercise science and i was just wondering what is the difference (apart from one is more about exercise) and will all the modules link to exercise or will it include generic sport things such as for e.g. how injuries affect someone psychologically.

    You need to look at a breakdown of the course modules.. Theres a possibility you can do an additional health related degree after. If employment is your concern then look on the health websites, bit standard physio jobs seem to have a lot more vacancies.

    Looks like the modules covers a range of holistic and multi-disciplinary approaches since it covers different perspectives from health, sociology and psychology. So it's more than just exercise.
