  • Objectives
    The MSc Sports and Exercise Science provides advanced study opportunitiesacross a wide range of the sciences relevant to sport and exercise, including physiology, psychology, nutrition and research methods. The course is designed to benefit both those who deal with sports science as part of their work (such as sports coaches, fitness trainers, therapists and other exercise professionals). It is also aimed at those with a general interest in understanding the scientific basis of physical activity, training and competition. The physiological response of the human body to exercise is taken as the central, unifying framework for the course.

    The MSc programme is run by the Sports Science subject group but is able to draw on the professional experience of staff in other areas, particularly those in the Sports Therapy and Nutrition Subject Groups.
