This postgraduate masters programme provides training in the practical, theoretical and applied elements of Exercise and Sport Sciences. This programme acts as a conversion course taking students at entry from a variety of backgrounds and giving them new skills to enable them to move into research and employment in a number of disciplines. The purpose of the MSc Exercise and Sport Sciences is: to provide a strong foundation for research in exercise and sport science, to provide academic and practical knowledge and training for those seeking a career as an exercise or sports scientist in a clinical or community environment or involved in management or organisation of such services.
The courses have a taught component, and a period of research to produce a dissertation. Students will learn through a range of teaching methods that will include lectures, lab seminars and the use of group work activities to enrich the learning experience and recognise the rich contribution that each member of the cohort brings with them.
