Course content

This course focuses on sport and exercise physiology. It 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. Students 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.

Within the modular structure all students undertake core/compulsory modules in: research Skills; independent study (a one to one supervised programme of work leading to the development of the proposal for the research project); supervised experience a module tailored to the needs of the individual and could include directed work with a specified client group or individual; research project relevant to the programme being studied. In addition to the core modules listed above, students choose an optional module from: sport psychology; effective coaching; rehabilitation of the injured athlete.

Students also undertake two further compulsory modules in clinical exercise physiology and performance physiology.

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).
