Studying abroad in U.K.

I know this may be off topic, but i need some advice as to where to study abroad in the U.K. I am a kinesiology student in the U.S. and Im planning on going to the U.K. within a year to study. Does anyone have any reccomendations as to what school to attend or area to go since i know that the U.K. has one of the strongest health and supplement focuses in the world. Let me know if you have any advice.

    Most universities don't do just kinesiology. It tends to be incorporated into other courses for example the one i'm currently doing which is a degree sports and exercise development. In the North East Northumbria Uni is pretty good, Sunderland and Gateshead do similar courses.

    Gateshead doesn't have a University.

    I actually went to Northumbria University.

    Is Northumbria University and gateshead all in the same area? What area would it be in, and would you reccomend any other schools. I have always heard there are good schools in london, but not sure yet. I still have a year to decide but im doing my research now.

    Try doing a course search under www.floodlight.co.uk and www.hotcourses.com, should point you in the right direction.

    Northumbria & Gateshead are in the North of the UK. I go to Northumbria and it's a good place.

    best thing is to browse their websites. would be worth confirming that any qualification you atchieved here would be recognised in the US & you dont have to take any other exams etc etc

    also, with the price of the tuition fees, its gonna cost you a lot of money to train over here. a great experience, but expensive.

    also, have a hunt on google and you will prob find websites rating universities, quality of education etc etc. im pretty sure either the Guardian or the Times have university rankings (UK newspapers)

    Why is it that everything i seem to learn points that the U.K. has a great health and supplement system. I have always thought that the U.K. is more health aware and oriented, and all of my exchange programs for kinesiology are offered in the U.K.

    Both The Times and The Guardian have university guides online. I cant speak for the particular course, but ive just graduated from manchester and have loved it. Id definitely recommend it.

    Check out this site http://www.kinesiologyfederation.org/

    I very much doubt that a 'proper' University will carry this sort of course as it's classed as an alternative therapy
