With an emphasis on applied theory, practical work and community engagement, this programme provides students with a multidisciplinary understanding of sport science with an option to specialise in a particular area. The course is designed for graduates from sport-related degrees and professional practitioners wishing to keep their scientific knowledge and skills up to date. Students will be encouraged to undertake applied work in the areas that best fit their interests and career plans. Expert academics with specialist knowledge will mentor and support students through their chosen research project.
