Sport & Exercise Medicine
Below are testimonials from some of our recent graduates.
"The MSc SEM programme at Glasgow University firstly provides the Post graduate an intellectually challenging but rewarding experience which has definitely enhanced both my own clinical practice and research skills. The Faculty are a great asset to the programme as they are actively involved in their own research and this is very evident when it comes to their supervision and support for the post grads research project. Overall a great learning experiencing and I would have no hesitation in signing up for further programmes with the SEM Department in the future..."

“I will never regret my decision to pursue my MSc in Sports medicine at the University of Glasgow. The practical skills I gained through academic and part time voluntary work with theoretical knowledge in Glasgow, has enabled me to fully understand the principles of evidence based medicine in regard to the impact of medical conditions on exercise and its use as a treatment to enhance physical activity and health. The course offers sound practical experience in fitness testing, exercise prescription, nutrition and rehabilitation of chronic and terminal diseases as well as sports injuries.”
Gladys Mungai, Kenya (MSc taught 2010) Survey Asst for Medical Research Council
“I am heartily thankful to the University of Glasgow for offering me a scholarship, equivalent to an EU fee, which has helped me pursue my dream of coming to U.K. for the higher education. Being an international student, it was a different experience; I learned academic writing, presentations, critical reviewing which has helped expand my horizon. University of Glasgow has the unique architectural beauty, and the social life at the campus is among the best in U.K. I had the best time of my student life in Glasgow, and in three years it has become my second home. Glasgow is a fun city with an amazing party culture, just minus the weather! “
