Course content

Advising people on their fitness and health is a rewarding career and can be one step closer with an Applied Sport and Exercise Science MSc.

The amount of ill health associated with physical inactivity and the increasing demand for enhanced performance in professional sports has fuelled interest in sports science and raised the demand for sport and exercise science practitioners.

This course aims to provide students with the technical, analytical, practical and professional knowledge, understanding and skills to enhance human performance across a range of domains (sport, occupational, health) using exercise. Your studies will count towards British Association of Sport and Exercise Science (BASES) accreditation.
