Course summary

Our MRes in Sport and Exercise Sciences is an innovative opportunity for you to engage in a substantive individual research project with personal supervision and targeted research training. The aim is to give you a supportive environment in which to develop and utilise your research skills in specific areas of interest. Why study this course with us? You will be taught and supervised by experienced, research-active staff. A large proportion of their research is internationally recognised and has direct impact with real-world practice (i.e. performance, health policy, teaching). Many staff are also engaged with external partners, including sports governing bodies, professional sports clubs and health trusts, which provide applied and research opportunities for students. The above features ensure that you will be provided with appropriate research and applied training that aims to enhance your employability.

Assessment method

You will be assessed via written assessments and oral presentations for taught modules, and via a literature review, journal article and oral presentation for the research project. Note there are no formal examinations. Contact hours are 200 hours’ study per taught module, including 40 hours’ contact time; and 1,400 hours’ study for the research project, including 40 hours’ tutor contact.

Entry requirements

A minimum 2:1 honours degree in a relevant discipline, or substantive professional experience, is required. Consideration will be given to those who hold a lower classification who can demonstrate they are capable of performing at the level required to complete the course successfully.
