The MSc Applied Sports Performance Analysis course is aimed at individuals who wish to gain or develop skills to monitor and record sporting performances as well as liaise with coaches and athletes in the training and competition environments to improve their performance.

Individuals with skills in analysis and evaluation of sporting performance are in high demand in order to maximise athlete potential and to minimise risk of injury. The main driver for this is an increased number of people engaging in performance sporting activities and increased media coverage of sport, along with a greater range of technology available to support athletes and coaches.

This course aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to collect, analyse and effectively present data relating to a range of different sports performance parameters.

Visit the website: http://www.rgu.ac.uk/laboratory-biomedical-and-sports-sciences/study-options/postgraduate/applied-sports-performance-analysis/

Modules

• HSM162 - Feedback-based Analysis of Sports Performance
• HSM163 - Principles of Biomechanics and Instrumentation
• HSM164 - Analysis of Sports Technique
• HSM165 - Athlete Monitoring And Analysis
• HSM166 - Sports Performance Analysis Placement
• HSM170 - Research Project

Please note that some of the above modules are subject to validation.

[[Format]

You will be taught in a variety of ways including lectures, interactive workshops and tutorials, practical classes and individual projects.

Placements and accreditation

Placements with professional sports clubs and organisations are one of the key options within the course. Our placement providers include Aberdeen Football Club, ALTIS Aberdeen Athletics, basketballscotland and Cricket Scotland.

Careers

This course provides a route to employment as a Performance Analyst or Sports Scientist with high-level sports clubs and organisations. Here are some comments from placement providers:

“Elite football teams are constantly looking for any competitive edge they can make, which will improve performance on the field. Due to this there has been a steady increase in job opportunities for performance analysts. It is critical that graduates understand evidence based interventions and methods whilst also gaining practical skills which allow them to interact effectively with coaches and players. The MSc Applied Sports Performance Analysis course at the Robert Gordon University balances the theoretical knowledge but also gives the practical skills needed to succeed in a very competitive and rewarding environment.”
Greig Thomson, Head Performance Analyst, Aberdeen Football Club

“Performance Analysis is crucial to remain ahead in high performance sport. Getting essential data to both coaching staff and players at the key time is a major asset in performance sport. At basketballscotland, our sport demands real-time team and player analysis, in addition to background data on opponents strengths and weaknesses. We would welcome individuals with the skills, knowledge and ability to convey this essential information in to our performance programme.”
Barry Lang, Head of Basketball, basketballscotland
