This degree responds to the rise of sedentary lifestyles and ill-health of the population by exploring how individuals and communities need distinct approaches to health and physical activity. This includes children, older adults, people with disabilities and those with long-term health conditions. The course offers the opportunity to develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of physical activity and health development through a multidisciplinary perspective. It aims to prepare students to support and evaluate clients with health-related problems, both physically and psychologically, learning to prescribe evidence-based exercise programmes based on their individual requirements. Students have the opportunity to explore the broader health development field engaging in the theory and practice of building and evaluating social interventions which intend to engage the public in physical activity promotion.
Students have the opportunity to examine core theoretical components in year one of the course. During the second and third years, vocationally relevant skills can be developed through work placements, practical assessments and âreal-worldâ theory-driven teaching.

Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.
