MSc Applied Sport Science
The programme has been designed to be flexible and relevant to the student's individual needs and interests, with a strong emphasis on the application of theory to professional practice. Within the modular structure of the degree, students will undertake compulsory modules in Research Skills, Independent Study, Supervised Experience and Dissertation relevant to the programme being studied. They also choose modules from Performance Physiology, Sports Psychology, Exercise Psychology, Clinical Exercise Physiology, Kinesiology and Effective Coaching.
The programme is delivered using a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, seminars, workshops, group activities, practical work, tutorials and role play. Each module comprises approximately 200 hours of student time (including formal contact).
You may have the opportunity 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 organises an annual student conference. 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.
