Course content

This intellectually stimulating MRes Sport Management programme allows students to develop their career in sport and health through a critical appreciation of contemporary issues and developments within the field. Through critical reflection it equips students with the skills and knowledge to plan for these changes, implement them and deal with any challenges.

This programme is a project based and work centred programme, providing a particularly responsive alternative approach to professional development that is rooted in the concept of action research and encourages students to explore issues as they emerge. The University has the only British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) accredited laboratory in the SouthWest and students will have access to these facilities to complete their studies. Students will also have the opportunity to work with elite and young elite athletes. Students will attend research seminars which feature leading national and international academics presenting on various topics within the discipline of sport and exercise science.

The programme is structured around a flexible though clearly framed series of supervised projects. There are three x 60 credit modules delivered through lectures, seminars, individual tutorials and distance learning. Each project focuses on a clear theme which is key to a critical appreciation of the professional area and has its own qualification outcome.
