Designed for recent graduates and practitioners, our MSc Applied Sport & Exercise Science will help you explore the sciences underpinning performance. This course is a great match for anyone working in community or professional sport, including coaches, current and former athletes, and sports support staff. Becoming confident in the lab is important, but we know it’s equally valuable to look at different factors in the real world. At Edge Hill University, you’ll benefit from our applied approach – carrying out a mix of lab and field-based activities. You’ll also learn how different disciplines share ideas to understand performance. Boost your understanding of biomechanics, physiology and psychology in theory and practice. Hone transferable skills that support career development. Enhance your employability and show you’ve got the skills for the role you really want. You’ll study a combination of core and optional sport and exercise science modules. This will help you combine knowledge and practical techniques with the opportunity to explore strength and conditioning, or mental health awareness in community or elite sports. What you'll study Your postgraduate study in applied sport & exercise science is all about improving your knowledge of theory while mastering practical skills. Benefit from placement opportunities and build your expertise in specialist research. With optional modules, you can gear the course to your goals. Pick from strength and conditioning, mental health awareness in community sport, or mental health awareness for performance sport athletes. Completing a research project will give you the chance to focus on what interests you. You might even get the opportunity to present your findings to academics, practitioners, and other representatives of relevant organisations in the field.
You will be assessed through a range of methods including essays, projects and lab reports, oral presentations, poster presentations, practical activity, portfolios and an independent research project.
You should have a degree equivalent to UK first-class or upper second-class honours (2:1 or above) in a relevant sports-related discipline. GCSE English Language and GCSE Mathematics at Grade C or Grade 4 or above (or equivalent) are also required. Relevant professional qualifications and/or appropriate work experience will also be considered and assessed on an individual basis.
