Course content

Sport and exercise science research at LSBU is of high quality; 73% of our research into Sport and Exercise Sciences was awarded the two highest ratings: 4* world-leading or 3* internationally excellent, for overall quality by the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. 90% received 4* or 3* for 'impact' (reach and significance) and 75% a 3* for 'environment' - "conducive to producing research of internationally excellent quality, in terms of its vitality and sustainability".

A member of staff, expert in the chosen field, is directly responsible for guiding and supporting your research programme. As a research student you'll become part of our thriving academic community. Most research work in the field takes place as part of the Sport and Exercise Science Research Centre. Expertise and possible research areas include:

  • movement neuroscience
  • nutrition and metabolism
  • clinical and applied sciences

A PhD, by definition, is an original contribution to knowledge. A research degree is different from a taught course. Research students are expected to self-direct their learning with support from a supervisory team.
