If I do a sports science degrees then I can become an exercise physiologist. I was wondering if there is a demand for this job? Or should I just do physiotherapy

You'll usually need a degree in sports science or a closely-related subject. Relevant undergraduate sport and exercise science degrees are based around physiology, biomechanics and psychology, and you'll be expected to have a broad knowledge base covering all three subjects and interdisciplinary approaches.

Some degree courses are endorsed by The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), which means that the curriculum, resources and opportunities that the courses offer are appropriate for a career in sport science. See the BASES Course Finder.

As competition for jobs is strong, it can be useful to have a postgraduate qualification specialising in sport and exercise physiology or a relevant PhD. Search for postgraduate courses in sport and exercise physiology.

Strong competition might mean there's not many jobs for quite a few applicants, the same may be true for physiotherapy though.

If you can get decent work from your undergrad then yes.
