Course content

This Master's degree provides you with the theoretical underpinning, practical skills and professional experience required for a successful career in sport and exercise physiology. Sports physiologists play a vital role in developing human performance for sports teams and individual athletes by providing scientific support, monitoring physical attributes and optimising training programmes.

The programme is led by Dr Jessica Hill and staff include John Pattison, Dr Owen Jeffries, Dr Mark Glaister and Dr Mark Waldron who each bring many years of teaching, research and consultancy experience in their specialist areas.

We have excellent facilities including three human performance laboratories, a state-of-the-art performance education centre and extensive sports grounds.

Unlike courses that take a more academic approach to scientific theory, this programme focuses on the practical application of skills and knowledge required by today’s sports and exercise professionals. Content is aligned to the competencies identified by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and therefore provides the perfect stepping-stone to a professional career.
