Why Study Exercise Medicine with us?

The course is founded on two core elements:

  1. The national aims set by the Joint Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons
  2. The historical aims of Dr William Penny Brookes of Much Wenlock, Shropshire, the true founding father of the modern Olympic movement; activity and sport for social-cultural, mental and physical well-being

There is an increasing demand for postgraduate studies and professional development in exercise medicine in the UK and internationally. With the specialist and internationally respected reputations of the academic staff at University Centre Shrewsbury, this course aims to provide for the broader need around exercise in health, disease management and prevention.



Guildhall is nestled on the banks of the River Severn, and only a short walk from the winding streets of Shrewsbury.
First constructed in 2004, and renovated for the arrival of University Centre Shrewsbury in 2015, the Guildhall building is used as the main centre for teaching and learning and offers fresh, modern and open spaces for students to enjoy.
The building boasts brand-new computer suites, lecture and seminar rooms, open-plan laboratories, a spacious library, as well as a student common room, lounge, fitness suite, courtyard, and on-site café.
