Course summary

Our flexible MSc in Sport and Exercise Science course means that you'll work in your specific interest area from day one, focusing your learning and research to become a specialist on your chosen theme. You'll use a range of advanced techniques throughout all of your modules, including creating online tools, practical experiments, auditing and planning to create and analyse real-world data. Continually engaging with contemporary and future issues within sport and exercise science, including legal and ethical problem-solving, you'll critically consider your long-term career goals and plan for your future. You'll develop your practical skills by using our specialist equipment, which includes 3D motion analysis system, breath-by-breath oxygen kinetics, near Infra-red spectroscopy, GPS in-match/motion tracking software, eye tracking glasses, force plates, thoracic impedance, and blood chemistry. Because some of our module content is delivered online, you'll have more time to either continue working in the field of sport and exercise science or take advantage of the internships and industry connections we have to increase your skills while you study. You’ll have the opportunity to shape your career and also begin to understand the professional accreditations that are open to you from industry bodies such as the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES).
