The course is designed to equip students with competences in the comprehension, design, organisation, running and management of individual and group-based motor and sport activities in public and private facilities, targeted at the development, maintenance and recovery of motor capacities and psychophysical wellbeing.

This degree course in Exercise, Sport and Health Sciences also focuses on the evaluation of physical and sports activities in various areas: competitions, social sports, sports and disability, post-rehabilitation recovery. The course provides the technical-scientific skills for a correct practice of sport and various forms of physical activity suitable for sportspeople of different age groups, as free as possible from eventual drawbacks associated with an incorrect methodological-didactic programming.

It also provides autonomy of judgment and knowledge of the scientific method, in order to lead to the development and continuous updating of cultural and operational skills which are necessary for a correct physical and sporting activity.

Graduates in Exercise, Sport and Health Sciences can enter the following professional positions:

  • educators engaged in the prevention of conditions which jeopardise good health, such as sedentary lifestyles, overweight and obesity conditions;
  • motor, sport and hobby activity organisers for different age groups (children and adolescents, adults, the elderly) in addition to general sports activities;
  • physical trainers with expertise in planning and running training programmes;
  • expert physical trainers in activities that help to achieve and maintain physical and psycho- physical fitness;
  • expert physical trainers engaged in the technical management of motor and sports activities using specific equipment and facilities (fitness-wellness), personal trainers, group trainers;
  • operators in the diffusion and management of sport information;
  • consultants in companies and sports organisations, executives, managers of gyms and public and private sport centres;
  • consultants for regional sports facilities.

Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.

To be admitted, students must be in possession of a medical certificate for competitive sports. Candidates who do not do sports must present the following certificate, in accordance with Italian law: “Certificato di idoneità alla pratica sportiva: certificazione rilasciata ad atleta non avente la qualifica di agonista, ex art. 4 D.M. 24/04/2013, per il quale sono stati eseguiti tutti gli accertamenti diagnostici previsti dallo stesso decreto ministeriale” (“Certificate of eligibility for sporting activities: certification issued to an athlete who does not have the status of an agonist, pursuant to art. 4 of the Ministerial decree 24/04/2013, for which all the diagnostic tests required by the same decree have been carried out”).
