Sport and Wellbeing Academy
The core aim of the Sport and Healthy Lifestyle Academy is to be at the heart of health and wellbeing in the local community and to promote and enable people to lead healthier lifestyles.
It gives our students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in the health and fitness industry and enables us to work with local communities to promote a culture of healthy eating and active lifestyles which enhances physical and mental wellbeing.
Newly-appointed exercise practitioners, university researchers and students will combine to make this a safe, welcoming and dedicated space.
Sport and exercise science at NTU has rapidly evolved over recent years and this is an opportunity to bring together our world-leading expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to create a real impact in the community.
Elements of the Academy
The Sport and Wellbeing Academy has three main themes.

School Sport and Physical Activity
