Course Summary

Overview

This MRes is a tailored programme of study enabling you to work closely with supervisors in your area of interest. This programme has been designed to allow you to specialise in either Psychology, Physiology or Biomechanics and to undertake your own independent research.

The Sports and Exercise Science master’s in research (MRes) at the University of Roehampton provides you with essential tools to make the transition from postgraduate study to further study (PhD) or employment.

You will undertake an extensive research dissertation which will give you the opportunity to perform focused research, informed and framed by theoretical understanding, and to develop the discipline-specific skills and understanding of the processes required for good research practice. To help inform your dissertation, you will also complete the Research Methods module and be paired with a project supervisor who is an expert in your chosen topic.

You will develop an enhanced understanding of the key concepts, principles, and theories in your chosen area of Sport and Exercise Science Research. You will also gain the conceptual, practical, and analytical framework for research and employment in the field of Sport and Exercise Science, while developing your ability to conduct a substantial piece of original research and present it in a variety of formats.

Career Options

This programme successfully prepares graduates to take up positions such as Exercise Physiologists, Biomechanists, Performance Consultants, PhD students, Researchers, Health Care Professionals, Lecturers and Data Analysts. The programme also equips graduates with the transferable and analytical skills for a diverse range of careers outside of Sports and Exercise Sciences.

Modules

Specific research titles will be negotiated in accordance with areas of staff expertise, but students are required to undertake an independent study in an area related to sport and exercise sciences. Students will select and utilise a research methodology appropriate to their project. The dissertation provides the opportunity to: perform focused research, informed and framed by theoretical understanding; and to develop the skills and understanding of the processes required for good research practice. The research project provides the student with the opportunity to perform focused research, informed and framed by theoretical understanding to exercise their research potential under tutorial guidance and supervision. In addition, students are required to attend the Sport Science Seminars Series to frame their understanding of current sport-related research and reflect upon the content.
