Course content

The Master of Research (MRes) allows you to develop specialised research skills within a professional research setting. It's an excellent preparation for PhD studies in exercise science, which is a discipline that's becoming increasingly focused on research.

Early in the course you'll take a taught module, choosing from a menu of options related to Strength and Conditioning or Clinical Exercise Physiology. You'll then select a project to work on, related to the existing work of the Department's research groups. This prepares you for the main part of the course, which is the design and implementation of a study of your choice for your thesis.

At the end of the course you could follow the usual route of progressing to doctoral level. Equally, you'll have the appropriate skills to start a career in any aspect of professional research.
