We designed this course to continue specialist studies at masters level for students who already possess a relevant first degree. You may also have an appropriate combination of other subject specific qualifications and relevant practical experience. Normally you need one of the following • a good first or upper second honours degree in sport or exercise science • a good honours degree in a relevant science discipline with suitable content • an alternative qualification with a suitable concentration of relevant science (at the discretion of the course leader) • a qualification in science or sport or exercise science at a level lower than first degree coupled with relevant practical experience The course leader interviews applicants with non-standard qualifications. If your first language is not English you must normally produce evidence of competence in English such an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills or equivalent. If your English language skill is currently below IELTS 6.0 we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English score.
