There has never been a more exciting time to undertake an MSc in Sport and Exercise Physiology. Sport represents one of the world’s major businesses and scientists have an increasingly prominent role in working with athletes, coaches, governing bodies and industry to help optimise elite performance.

Sport and Exercise Science is also playing an increasingly important role in society by promoting exercise for healthy ageing and the prevention of premature death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity.
Our teaching is delivered primarily through laboratory practicals and student-centred learning techniques, such as problem-based learning. During this programme you will complete a record of competency in physiological assessment, deliver a conference presentation, provide strength and conditioning training in the University’s high-performance gym and gain first-hand experience of ‘wet lab’ techniques including western blotting and proteomics.

From this foundation, many of our graduates go on to conduct doctoral research within academic/clinical institutions, sport clubs and allied organisations.

Please see guidance below on core and option modules for further information on what you will study.
Level 7
Mechanisms of Muscle Adaptation: provides a mixture of theory and practical work in molecular exercise physiology
Technical Training: provides extensive practical training in exercise physiology laboratory tests, and data collected during these sessions is used to teach statistical analysis techniques in the Research Methods topic
Contemporary Research: develops adaptations to training and fundamental academic skills through the critical appraisal of leading research
Applied Practice: is ideal if you aspire to a career in high-level professional sport and performance-orientated amateur training. This module teaches practical skills associated with safe and effective training prescription, and you may have the opportunity to gain experience by assisting the delivery of strength and conditioning training within the University’s Sport Scholarship scheme
Masters Dissertation: you will undertake a significant body of research in sport and exercise physiology. Dissertation projects are undertaken within research themes led by staff and associated PhD students. The majority of work is typically conducted across Semesters 2 and 3 and then presented as a journal manuscript, which may later be submitted for publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals

Further guidance on modules

The information listed in the section entitled ‘What you will study’ is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change.

This innovative and dynamic MSc course is appropriate for all health, social care and exercise professionals working with different patient or client groups, adults or children. A strength of the course is the opportunity it provides to work with practitioners from different professions, from different patient and client groups and from a variety of countries which all helps promote a diverse view of rehabilitation.

This course enables practitioners to examine their own rehabilitation practice in light of the analysis of key concepts and theories. The ICF (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, WHO 2001) - a key framework used internationally to guide rehabilitation practice, research and policy - will be used as a framework throughout the course. This will allow you to focus on rehabilitation from impairment through to activity and participation levels, taking into account contextual factors.

See the website http://www.brookes.ac.uk/studying-at-brookes/courses/postgraduate/2015/rehabilitation-musculoskeletal-neurological-posture-management-pathways/

Why choose this course?

- It provides a wide range of teaching and learning strategies, enabling you to develop relevant skills, for example in research and leadership. It offers five pathways: Neurological; Musculoskeletal; Paediatric Neurological; Exercise; Posture Management. (Please note for this pathway, you have to enter with 60 CATS credits from the Posture Management course, offered by the Oxford Centre for Enablement, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre NHS Trust, Oxford.)

- It has a strong practice focus achieved through the way we consistently link theory to practice. You have opportunities to work within the CLEAR unit and engage with the latest rehabilitation research.

- It is structured in such a way that it moves from generic content (PG Cert Rehabilitation) with a focus on rehabilitation concepts, pathophysiological aspects and evidence-based rehabilitation, to pathway-specific (PG Diploma) content. These pathways enable you to focus on rehabilitation generally, relating to your own area of practice through the assessments, and then to focus on pathway-specific modules, which you can relate to your own practice.

- It offers health, social care and exercise professionals highly flexible continuing professional development (CPD) study opportunities in rehabilitation, with part-time, full-time and mixed mode options (including opportunities for e-learning, blended and distance learning).

- Our teaching team is multiprofessional, promoting interprofessional learning and teaching, and offering excellent opportunities for shared learning.

- All of the course team are experienced practitioners, educators and/or researchers in rehabilitation. They have all published articles and books in the area of rehabilitation, and have presented at key rehabilitation conferences. Many of them have reputations for excellence and have established links with colleagues, organisations and institutions at national and international level.

- The faculty has a strong research profile, with experienced researchers working in established areas of cancer care, children and families, drug and alcohol, physical rehabilitation and enablement, and interprofessional education and collaborative practice. The programme links with the Centre for Rehabilitation at Oxford Brookes University which is renowned for its research in to movement science.

- Oxford Brookes is a student-centred institution that is fully committed to each individual being supported to achieve their potential. To support this, we offer a broad range of student support schemes to facilitate learning and development.

- We have an excellent track record of high levels of student satisfaction, low student attrition rates and high employability.

Please note: this course also has a start date in September and January. There are opportunities to take individual modules as well as a longer award.

Teaching and learning

Teaching, learning and assessment strategies are intended to promote an interprofessional, patient-centred and practice-focused approach to rehabilitation.

Opportunities for interprofessional learning - sharing existing and developing skills, knowledge and experience - are maximised. All teaching, learning experiences and specific assessments is focused on the individual and their rehabilitation programme. If you are not in practice, or not from a health care background, the sharing of knowledge and experience can be of particular value. To make the most of the range of experience, skills and knowledge within the group, a variety of teaching and learning strategies will be employed, including seminars, group work and case studies.

Assessment methods used within the course are varied; they are designed to be stimulating as well as academically rigorous, and are based on your learning needs, individual aims, content, and the academic standards expected for the course. Assessment is based on coursework consisting of academic and reflective essays and case studies.

The course team is committed to providing flexibility, and is exploring ways of offering blended-learning approaches.
