Entry requirements

After gaining initial information, advice and guidance from our website, prospective postgraduate applicants are invited to make contact with the relevant hub's postgraduate research coordinator to discuss their proposed application in more detail. Students are only admitted if they are suitably qualified and their proposed programme of study can be supported by the hub. This means we can ensure there is a suitably qualified and experienced supervisory team, and that you'll have access to specialist facilities and information resources, as appropriate. The ethical implications of the proposed study are also considered.

Course content

The sport, health and wellbeing hub recognises the rising prominence of sports science and health related disciplines at Solent.

The hub draws upon a rich background of expertise in these areas and represents a developmental phase for both the sports science, health and development cluster (from which a submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) was submitted in 2014), and the health and wellbeing network, which now includes members from local government, the NHS, and academics from other UK institutions.

These two complementary initiatives have been brought together to foster the interchange of expertise and innovation.
