Course description

This MSc degree in Applied Sport Science aims to provide graduates with the opportunity to take a multidisciplinary approach to their development. The degree will provide you with the skills, knowledge and flexibility of thought to develop an understanding of the physiological and psychological approaches to performance enhancement (e.g., competitive athletes and casual exercisers). It will also provide you with insights into the approaches that may be taken when working within rehabilitation settings (e.g., healthy ageing, chronic disease). It has been designed to be flexible and relevant to your individual needs and interests, with a strong emphasis on the application of theory to professional practice. 

Professional Accreditation: 

You’ll be able to use some of the knowledge and skills that you’ll acquire to prepare for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) supervisory experience training, which is normally a pre-requisite of the Association’s professional accreditation. 

BASES also organise an annual student conference. Some of our former MSc students have won prestigious awards for ‘Best Postgraduate Verbal Presentation’ and ‘Best Postgraduate Poster Presentation’ at the BASES Student Conferences. These awards are open to MSc and PhD students from all UK Universities and the fact that our students have repeatedly won awards is an indication of the excellent quality of the teaching and research training you’ll experience on our course
