Course content

About This Course

This MSc Sport and Exercise Physiology degree aims to allow graduates to develop and apply physiological knowledge to individuals involved in settings that focus on performance enhancement (e.g., competitive athletes and casual exercisers), and physiology-based-rehabilitation settings. The degree will equip you with a blend of evidence-based knowledge and practical skills that will prepare you for a career working with individuals involved in such settings.

Professional Accreditation

You’ll be able to use some of the knowledge and skills that you’ll acquire on this MSc Sport and Exercise Physiology degree 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 a good indication of the quality of the teaching and research you’ll experience on our course.

Due to our reputation for research excellence, we attract students from all over the world and have postgraduate course leaflets available in Arabic and Chinese.
