Course Summary

With an emphasis on applied theory, practical work, and community engagement, this programme aims to provide students with a multidisciplinary understanding of sport science with an option to specialise in a particular area.

The MSc Sport Science is designed for graduates from sport-related degrees and professional practitioners wishing to keep their scientific knowledge and skills up to date.

Students will be encouraged to undertake applied work in the areas that best fit their interests and career plans. Academics with specialist knowledge offer mentorship and support throughout the research project.

Students can choose to focus their independent work within one of three named pathways - Biomechanics, Physiology, or Psychology - or study the MSc Sport Science without a designated pathway, in order to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of their studies.

The School maintains close links with local and national athletes, sports clubs, coaching networks, and elite athlete support programmes. These links can provide students with diverse, real-world opportunities for delivering applied support and for sharing their sport science knowledge with the community through workshops and consultancy activities.

How You Are Assessed

The broad range of assessment methods for this programme include an applied support portfolio, delivery of a workshop, applied practical assessments, written reports, a presentation, and a dissertation.

Career Opportunities

The breadth of the material and applied experiences covered in this programme can prepare graduates for a range of career opportunities, including sport science support, research or teaching in sport science, physical education or related areas.


This module is designed to develop your ability in the use of advanced biomechanical assessment tools to collect valid and reliable data for independent applied practice or research. Particular emphasis will be placed on three-dimensional motion analysis and isokinetic dynamometry. Data collection and analysis will be considered in the context of the wider support process.
