Course Summary

The aim of this online taught MSc in Sports Science is to provide you with an advanced, research-led programme of study in Sport & Exercise Science & Medicine. A key strength of this programme is its flexibility, enabling you to specialise in physical activity and health, sports performance, or sports medicine.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • This is the only MSc in Sports Science in Scotland that merges Sport & Exercise Medicine and Sport & Exercise Science within a single degree programme, providing a broad range of options across these disciplines.
  • Benefit from access to the expertise of staff at the National Stadium Sports Health & Injury Clinic at Hampden Park, a custom-built, state-of-the-art sports medicine facility.
  • You will develop and enhance your skills in: searching and critically evaluating relevant scientific evidence; application of knowledge to novel concepts and situations; experimental design; research methods and ethics; data handling and statistics; interpretation and evaluation of experimental data; scientific writing; and oral presentations.
  • You will have access to state-of-the-art facilities to study performance and health aspects of Sport & Exercise Science, from the whole body to the molecular level. These include advanced exercise laboratories, metabolic investigation suites and a molecular biochemistry lab. We are the best equipped exercise science group for laboratory facilities in Scotland, making the University of Glasgow the perfect place to study an MSc in Sports Science.
  • You will have the chance to network with a number of regional/national sporting bodies and a number of professional sporting clubs. There may be opportunities for internships (in place of a research project) for some students.
  • Guest lecture staff provide interactive sessions in their specialist fields.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The flexibility of this programme will provide you with many career opportunities. These include working in clinical exercise, health-promotion or in sports science support.

A number of our graduates are employed in senior sports science positions with national sporting bodies and professional sports clubs.

This programme also allows doctors and physiotherapists to aid their knowledge. For science graduates, there are opportunities in rehabilitation and higher education.

It also provides an excellent basis if you wish to pursue PhD level research.
