Physiology (Human) Sports Physiotherapy Sports Studies
About This Course
This MSc Sport and Exercise Physiology degree aims to allow graduates to develop and apply physiological knowledge to individuals who are involved in settings that focus on performance enhancement (e.g., competitive athletes and casual exercisers), and physiology based-rehabilitation settings. The degree will equip you with a blend of evidence-based knowledge and practical skills that will prepare you for a career working with individuals who are involved in such settings.
You’ll be able to use some of the knowledge and skills that you’ll acquire on this MSc Sport and Exercise Physiology degree to prepare for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) supervisory experience training, which is normally a pre-requisite of the Association’s professional accreditation.
BASES also organise an annual student conference. Some of our former MSc students have won prestigious awards for ‘Best Postgraduate Verbal Presentation’ and ‘Best Postgraduate Poster Presentation’ at the BASES Student Conferences. These awards are open to MSc and PhD students from all UK Universities and the fact that our students have repeatedly won awards is a good indication of the quality of the teaching and research you’ll experience on our course.
All our postgraduate programmes are designed (with further training where appropriate) to enhance the career prospects of Sport, Health and Exercise Science graduates. Career destinations of Bangor postgraduates include: the Home Country Sports Institutes, National Governing Bodies, the Olympic Medical Institute, Professional sports teams and organisations, the fitness industry, the NHS (hospitals and Primary Care Trusts), Teaching and Education (after completing a Postgraduate Certificate of Education). Further postgraduate study (ie Doctoral research) is another vocational route.
This specific degree will provide you with many of the physiology related experiences that are required to work with athletes and exercisers in applied sport settings (e.g., amateur, professional) and/or casual exercise / health settings. The degree will also facilitate further academic study in complementary topics, and for careers in research (e.g., research fellow, PhD). You’ll also obtain transferrable skills that are applicable to careers outside of sport and exercise physiology, both in the public and private sector.
