Course Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Taught at one of the largest providers of sport in UK higher education – this course will give you an in-depth understanding of the physiological and metabolic effects of exercise and training. You’ll develop the practical skills required to meet the specific needs of the client, be it optimal performance or improved health.

As part of your course you’ll:

  • Build knowledge, expertise and applied experience from working with athletes
  • Develop clinical exercise physiology skills working alongside physiologists and doctors on a research project

Or

  • Gain clinical exercise physiology skills working with athletes through the university's commercial screening services

With the flexibility to select from a range of modules covering different aspects of sport and exercise physiology, you’ll be able to specialise in an area matched to your career ambitions.

If you’re studying the MSc, you’ll explore different research methods before conducting a major independent study related to your specific area of interest.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
