Understanding Research in Sport and Exercise Science - Core

The module is designed to develop knowledge and skills in research methodology. It culminates in the presentation of a sport and exercise research proposal. The module initially focuses on the methods of knowledge acquisition and the theory and practice of different research paradigms commonly used in the study of sport. Following this, learning is directed toward developing your ability to effectively utilise traditional and more contemporary approaches to statistical analysis and report the findings in a manner commensurate with peer-reviewed publications.

Strength and Conditioning: Theory, Practice and Personal Development - Core

This module is designed to enable you to explore the broad area of strength and conditioning in sport and exercise through a combination of classroom learning and work-related activity. You apply previous knowledge and systematically evaluate the current literature to address key questions concerning the enhancement of physical preparation. You are then given the opportunity to disseminate your findings.

Sport and Exercise Research Project - Core

This module is designed to enable you to apply your learning from previous modules to conduct a substantial self-initiated research project.
