The health focus of the course is a growth area of interest to academic, private and public sectors.
Experience in the area of integrated and translational physiology is required by an increasing number of research groups in both academia and private sector, indicating good employment prospects for graduates in those sectors.
The health and exercise sector may also provide opportunities for employment for graduates. Furthermore, it should be pointed out that integrated physiology is a priority area for postgraduate training support by UK Research Councils and charities.
Given the demand for high quality candidates to enter PhD training schemes in Nottingham (and elsewhere in UK), it is anticipated that a high proportion of the students will progress to study for a PhD degree, with the intention to build a network of potential leaders in translational physiology for the future.
