The degree in "Sport Science, technique and didactics" aims at training graduates very skilled in elite- and recreational-sports. The training course could be also addressed to teaching physical education at school.
Major professional outcomes and employment niches are as follows:
- management and cooperation on projects and scientific centers sports-related;
- training of adolescents in various sports disciplines either competitive or not-;
- training of adults and elderly in various sports disciplines, even competitive ones;
- exploiting methodology and techniques of sports functional evaluation for people of all ages, gender, and level of athletic fitness;
- planning and organization of sports activities by means of specific tools and activities;
- organization and coordination of sports events, either competitive or amateur;
- management and promotion of scientific research applied to private or public physical activities;
- conduction, management, planning and coordination of sports activities from reacreational to professionistic level.

Employment statistics (Almalaurea)
Within the Erasmus+ project, the School of Sport Sciences offers to its master's students in Sport Sciences, Technique and Sport Didactic to spend part of their time for academic formation by one among nine prestigious European partner universities localised in Spain, Portugal, France, Austria, Norway Poland, Hungary and Turkey. Erasmus students will have from 2 to a maximum of 12 month each cycle for their Erasmus formation. Remarkably, some University require a certificate demonstrating the level of student's language competence, which is compulsory for admission. During Erasmus, students will have the possibility to attend courses included in their academic curriculum and integrate their formation with alternative and optional courses that are typical of the University geographical contest (e.g. water-base sport, diving, sailing, trekking, skiing ). Alternatively, students could choose for a research-oriented experience and being actively involved in research programs useful for their thesis preparation. They could also have the possibility to perform their external training in centres agreed upon the partner University. Once back to the University of Milan, the passed exams and their relative credits will be integrated in the students' study plan, after ECTS/CFU conversion.

Mandatory for at least 70% of lessons

Requirements and admission criteria

In order to be admitted to the Master Programme in “Exercise Science for Healthy Life”, the candidates should be holding:

  • a Bachelor degree (three-year degree) belonging to the classes of first degree L-33 (i.e. “Economics”) or L-22 (i.e. “Exercise Sciences, Sports and Health Sciences”). Such degrees should be held or obtained by December 31, 2021.
  • in-depth knowledge of subjects like Anatomy of the locomotor system, Exercise physiology, and Training, theory and methodology.
  • a medical certificate including a basal and stress ECG test; a urine sample examination; a spirometry test. The official medical certificate will state: “Certificato di idoneità all’attivita sportiva agonistica" [i.e. "certificate of eligibility for competitive sports"] or "Certificato di idoneità alla pratica sportiva di particolare ed elevato impegno cardiovascolare, ex art. 4 D.M. 24/04/2013”  [i.e. "certificate of eligibility for sports activity under high cardiovascular effort circumstances, 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]. These certificates must be signed out and stamped by the Italian sports physicians/doctors with their official regional registration number.

Such a medical certificate - valid and in compliance with regulations - can be uploaded upon registration for the admission tests. Documents not compliant with the above regulations will not be accepted.

The last chance for providing such a certificate will be upon enrolment, once students have passed admission tests and are therefore considered eligible.
