Summary

This programme equips you to work in the field of Sport Science and provides the opportunity to gain real-life experience with athletes. Graduates become experienced Sports Scientists able to work effectively in academia or professional sport.

This degree requires you to undertake a substantial, original research project, under the supervision of one or more members of academic staff who act as supervisors. Your supervisory team provides guidance both in terms of research project development and execution. Typically, you meet with your supervisors more frequently at the initial stages of research than during the phases of data collection and analysis.

There is a wide range of training available to Masters by Research students, including traditional, transferable skills and research specific training. This is either provided by Sport and Exercise Sciences staff, or by colleagues from the University's Graduate School.

You are also supported by attendance at the School’s postgraduate seminar series to develop subject specific knowledge and research skills relevant to your field of research.

Research activity within the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences is divided into two main themes:

Endurance Performance Sports Therapy, Physical Activity and Health Within these two themes our research spans the areas of physiology, psychology, nutrition, biomechanics, older people, clinical population, elite athletes, and members of the general population.
