This course prepares graduates to teach in secondary schools. As well as gaining a PGCE, students are assessed against the national standards in order to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Read more

Course in brief

This course prepares graduates to teach in secondary schools. As well as gaining a PGCE, students are assessed against the national standards in order to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

This specialism provides graduates with the depth of knowledge required to enable them to become reflective and pro-active practitioners.

The opportunity to undertake masters level study within the course facilitates progression to an MA Education award after completion of the PGCE.

[[Professional accreditation ]]
The course leads to the recommendation of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Course structure

The course comprises four strands: subject study/subject education, education studies, placements and professional development.

The subject study/subject education strand builds upon existing subject expertise and provides students with the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the specialist subject in the secondary school context, allowing them to formulate their own rationale for teaching. Students consider pedagogical issues within curriculum development, and the learning and teaching strategies pertinent to the specialist subject, regularly reflecting upon, analysing, recording and evaluating their own learning experience. Students have the opportunity to develop a creative and constructively critical approach towards innovation within their specialism, and the capacity to improve practice.

The Education Studies strand is common to all subject routes of the course and takes place both at the university and while on placement as a means of enabling students to develop practical competences supported by relevant, analytical skills.

Teaching under supervision, on placement, occupies approximately two-thirds of the course. The university works in partnership with schools and colleges to provide a high quality programme of support ensuring a sound relationship between theory and practice. There are two placements in two different schools/colleges with the opportunity to visit further schools/colleges as part of the 'Peer Observation' programme.

Professional Development is linked explicitly to all strands of the course and is designed to enable students to evaluate critically and reflect upon their learning in order to make improvements. Students are expected to gather and justify evidence of their achievements on a regular basis and, in the light of this, develop and implement improvement plans.

Work with tomorrow’s computer systems – you’ll benefit from the expertise in the Department of Informatics and our practical links in the field of software engineering.

Advances across platforms, networks and computers mean new challenges, dwarfing the problems computer science has solved up to now. In order to meet these challenges, computing needs skilled scientists to be involved in system design.

How will I study?

In the autumn and spring terms, you’ll study core modules and options. In the summer term, you’ll work on a supervised dissertation. This may be research or commercially driven, with a significant practical element.

Assessment is through:
-Coursework
-Unseen examinations
-Essays
-Programming projects
-A 12,000-word dissertation

MSc project

On our Masters courses, you’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules. It demands individual responsibility and exposes you to issues of:
-Project management
-Resourcing
-Planning
-Scheduling
-Documentation and communication
-Critical awareness and creative thinking

In Informatics, you are encouraged to seek a project with a commercial or industrial flavour. Finding an industrial sponsor or host is fine, though you will still need an academic supervisor.

Course in brief

This course will suit you if you are a sport and exercise graduate, a graduate from a related science or a medical student looking to specialise in the field of exercise physiology.

It is designed to focus on professional skills that improve your employability, as you learn with state-of-the-art equipment including environmental chambers, breath-by-breath analysers, blood sampling analysers and transcranial magnetic stimulation devices.

You also again gain real-world experience in areas relevant to your interests by working alongside experienced practitioners. Past projects have included working with participants in our cardiac rehabilitation programme.

Our teaching laboratories are accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), as are most of our course staff. You can register on the BASES Supervised Experience Scheme yourself to achieve personal accreditation.

Course structure

The course is flexible in that it allows you to exit with a postgraduate certificate at the end of one semester (three 20-credit modules) or a postgraduate diploma at the end of two semesters (six 20-credit modules). You must complete the 60-credit research project to qualify for the MSc.

You spend around 100 hours of the course with an organisation related to the practice of physiology, which will allow you to apply your academic knowledge in a vocational setting. Previous students have worked in organisations including a cardiac rehabilitation programme and fall prevention classes with Albion in the Community.Many students have started their professional careers with the organisation that provided them with work experience.

Areas of study

In taught physiology modules, you'll experience and discuss the responses of the human body to various stimuli, including effect of environmental changes (heat and hypoxic chambers) and of ergogenic aids which can be used to simulate peculiar clinical conditions and help students understand better exercise tolerance. This novel approach to teaching integrative physiology will help you to develop a host of laboratory skills. You will be introduced to the latest in the research field of exercise physiology and will have an opportunity to write your own paper from your research project.

With modules such as Professional Enquiry, you'll also gain vocational skills to give you a competitive edge in the job market; through placement opportunities and chances to network in the world of exercise physiology, you'll graduate with a foot firmly in the industry.

Modules

Critical Insights into the Study of Physiology
Professional Enquiry
Exercise Tolerance (integrative physiology)
Expertise in Laboratory Skills for Exercise Physiologists
Options:

Applied Environmental Physiology
Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management
Ethical and Social Responsibility: Theory and Application
Bodies of Sport

Teaching environment

Laboratory work
- We accept a maximum of 15 students on this course
- All classes take place in our Exercise Physiology Laboratories with a ratio of 2:3 (staff:students)
- Students work in groups of four to five on problem-based situations.

Tutorials
- Students can book individual tutorials with every lecturer offering around three hours of tutorials per week.
- Group tutorials are also scheduled in our teaching programmes.

Careers and employability

Career opportunities for sport and exercise scientists are growing. Sports science is recognised as a vital ingredient in the success and development of most sports and for the individuals that take part it is an everyday aspect of their training. Many hospitals and Primary Care Trusts are also appointing specialists with exercise backgrounds to work in areas such as cardiac rehabilitation and health promotion.

An MSc in Applied Exercise Physiology from the University of Brighton will help you to stand out in today's competitive job market. It will equip you with both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary for a successful career and is also ideal preparation for continuing your study at MPhil or PhD level.

Our graduates have started their careers with organisations including:

The East Sussex Healthcare NHS trust (cardiovascular and physiological clinical trials officer; cardiac technician/physiologist)
