Course content

Designed for recent graduates and practitioners, our MSc Applied Sport & Exercise Science will help you explore the sciences underpinning performance. This course is a great match for anyone working in community or professional sport, including coaches, current and former athletes, and sports support staff. Becoming confident in the lab is important, but we know it’s equally valuable to look at different factors in the real world. At Edge Hill University, you’ll benefit from our applied approach – carrying out a mix of lab and field-based activities. You’ll also learn how different disciplines share ideas to understand performance. Boost your understanding of biomechanics, physiology and psychology in theory and practice. Hone transferable skills that support career development. Enhance your employability and show you’ve got the skills for the role you really want. You’ll study a combination of core and optional sport and exercise science modules. This will help you combine knowledge and practical techniques with the opportunity to explore strength and conditioning, or mental health awareness in community or elite sports.
