The Department of Sport, Health Sciences and Social Work, part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, brings together disciplines related to physical activity, health and social work to form an academic community focused on physical and mental wellbeing.
We provide excellent opportunities for research, and actively encourage cross-discipline collaboration. Our established and well regarded research communities undertake world leading research and the department offers a range of commercial services to external clients.
We are passionate about community engagement and employability and have many links with external bodies and employers.
It is with great pleasure that Oxford Brookes can announce that, after much hard work and combined effort, our Sport & Exercise Science and Sport, Coaching & Physical Education programmes now offer students the option to achieve level 2 (fitness instructor) and level 3 (personal trainer) qualifications, accredited by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).
On Tuesday 13 March, Suzanne Rastrick, Chief Allied Health Professions Officer for NHS England, visited Oxford Brookes University’s Faculty of Health and Life Sciences to give a talk centred on the NHS England publication ‘Allied Health Professions into Action’.
