Physical Education is the study of human movement and the role and significance of physical activity in society. It takes knowledge of the human body and applies it to a number of sporting contexts, as well as personal development. This course leads to many opportunities in sport, recreation, leisure and the health industry. A large number of our students use this subject as a springboard to medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, sport science and teaching. This course is theory orientated with practical work supporting theory work.
