Where do our graduates go?

The emphasis we place on transferable skills and developing well-rounded students means there really is no such thing as a "typical graduate destination" for students of the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences.

Our postgraduate students have gone on to further study or to follow careers in teaching, lecturing and research, as well as taking up positions within a variety of organisations or starting their own businesses.

They have secured roles with: the NHS; Public Health England; Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre; UK Athletics; the Football Association; Nestle; GlaxoSmithKline; The National Biomechanics Institute (US); Hawkeye; Adidas; and Qatar Investment Group, to name a few.
