With an emphasis on applied theory, practical work, and community engagement, this programme aims to provide students with a multidisciplinary understanding of sport science with an option to specialise in a particular area. The MSc Sport Science 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. Academics with specialist knowledge offer mentorship and support throughout the research project. Students can choose to focus their independent work within one of three named pathways - Biomechanics, Physiology, or Psychology - or study the MSc Sport Science without a designated pathway, in order to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of their studies. The School maintains close links with local and national athletes, sports clubs, coaching networks, and elite athlete support programmes. These links can provide students with diverse, real-world opportunities for delivering applied support and for sharing their sport science knowledge with the community through workshops and consultancy activities.

Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
