See Nursing and Medical Therapies Dietetics and nutrition. Most dieticians work in hospitals, informing and teaching the public and health professionals about diet and nutrition. There is normally a good match between the amount of graduates applying and jobs available as dieticians. For information on these careers see PE and primary teaching You would normally need to do a 1 year PGCE to train as a teacher.

Careers outside sport

Sport Health and Fitness graduates are attractive to many employers because of their personal transferable skills rather than the specific skills that they have gained during their degree course. These skills include the ability to analyse information in a logical way, numeracy and problem solving skills.
