Program description

Applied Sport Science

This course provides a focus on sport and performance. It has been designed to be flexible and relevant to the student’s individual needs and interests, with a strong emphasis on the application of theory to professional practice.

Students may have the opportunity 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 organises an annual student conference. 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.

Due to our reputation for research excellence we attract students from all over the world and have postgraduate course leaflets available in Arabic and Chinese.

Admission requirements

At least a 2.2 honours degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent).

Students with a degree from a different academic area may also be considered. Working professionals with non-graduate qualifications will be assessed on an individual basis.

EU and Overseas students, whose first language is not English, are required to take the standardised English Language test (IELTS) before starting the course. Students who achieve a score of 6.0 or above (no individual score below 5.5) are eligible for direct entry to the course. The University offers pre-sessional language courses before courses start through ELCOS for those that need additional support reaching the required level.
