Course content

The MRes in Sport and Exercise Science is designed to give you the opportunity to develop key research skills focused on sport and related research.

Most of your study will involve an independent research project supervised by an established researcher within the School, with the rest based on a core research skills module.

Teaching methods include lectures, workshops, seminars, discussion groups and meetings with your supervisory team. All taught modules are supported by online material.

You will work on your project in our refurbished sport and exercise laboratories, excellent modern sports facilities or in collaboration with local community organisations with the support of an existing research group with good community links.

Information for international students

In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, then IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent) is required. International qualifications will be checked for appropriate matriculation to UK Higher Education postgraduate programmes.
