The School of Sport and Exercise Science offers a wide range of research degree opportunities across various disciplines within sport and exercise science and sports studies, drawing on the specialist research interests of members of our staff. Registration for the MPhil/PhD or PhD allows you to devise and pursue a chosen topic of enquiry under the supervision of staff with expertise in that area. Research is an essential component of the School’s activity and it is committed to maintaining an infrastructure and intellectually stimulating environment that supports the development of the next generation of researchers. Applications for postgraduate research are welcome across the diverse sport, exercise and health disciplines in which the School’s academic staff specialise. In addition to subject-specific support from a supervisory team, you can benefit from a programme of research training that is designed to allow you to build on your existing knowledge and develop advanced skills and expertise.
Research in the School of Sport and Exercise Science is currently organised under five umbrella groupings: Youth Sport Development Group; Golf Education and Research Group; Sport Performance Enhancement Group; Health Advancement Research Team; Sport Psychology Research Group.
A PhD is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic.
