Health and Vitality

A good health is a condition to be able to exercise!

The range of Health & Vitality is aimed at keeping or making students and staff vital. The movement guidelines of the Knowledge Centre of Sports are the main focus. Our offer consists of: events, courses, workshops and advice, all with the aim of being able to exercise enough. If the body does not allow you to carry out your daily activities for a while, we offer advice and can refer you to a care provider. Furthermore, we find it important to be preventive and therefore we offer various programmes to keep you vital.
