Our pioneering Foundation Degree Physical Activity, Nutrition and Health gives you the chance to transform your passion for exercise and healthy eating into career roles that allow you to make a real difference to people’s lives. You will explore the importance of physical activity and nutrition in preventing and managing disease as well as promoting optimal health and wellbeing at all stages of life. Throughout the course you will draw on the latest scientific evidence and research to underpin your work.

With its strong focus on real world learning, the course enables you to apply your skills and knowledge to practical health promotion projects. You will gain experience of working with individuals to change their attitudes to exercise and nutrition. You will also take part in initiatives that aim to improve the health and exercise habits of entire communities and population groups.

The department has a strong track record for collaborative projects aimed at tackling physical inactivity and has been involved in projects associated with the Blackpool Healthy Towns initiative as well projects across Fleetwood and Wyre Borough. By joining this course, you will play an important role in helping us to achieve the health targets set out by the local council; at the same time you will be developing the academic knowledge and practical know-how to develop your own career direction in a specialist and growing field, where high calibre new recruits are in demand.

Using the sport science laboratory you will get involved in physiology testing, immune system function and occupational health assessments, as well as psychology-based studies relating to exercise. We have also aligned the elements of the programme to national standards for the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) so you will have opportunities to gain the Level Two Gym Instructor qualification as a bolt-on course (although fees may apply).
