Objectives

The educational and scientific objectives of the course are as follows:
Firstly, the course aims to give national and international students a scientific knowledge base in the theoretical fields of Exercise physiology. This involves training the student in the evaluation and prescription of physical activity for patients suffering from different pathologies (metabolic, inflammatory, cardiorespiratory, cancer); and/or using all physical and/or sports  activities for purposes of prevention, rehabilitation (or recovery), post-rehabilitation, re-education, education; and/or for the social integration of people with disabilities or from at-risk populations.

Secondly, the course aims to foster students' integration in the job market as executives in the health and social sectors and in associations, as well as in sports and educational organisations (health institutes, rehabilitation centres, retirement homes, educational medical centres, medical-professional and medical-social institutes, health networks, PA associations, specialised sports federations, fitness centres, local bodies, working in conjunction with at-risk populations).
