This programme is aimed at students working towards a career in research. Two thirds of this programme is spent in the execution of a supervised individual research project within one of the research groups in the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience. The remaining third of the programme consists of a research skills module and an optional module which may be selected from a list containing further research skills or subject related academic modules.
In recent years, research and knowledge exchange in the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience has developed significantly, largely due to the success in Research Assessment Exercise 2008 and our revised Research and Knowledge Exchange strategy bringing together our core research themes.
Research is carried out at national and international levels, undertaken with a variety of partners including the NHS, industry and other UK and overseas universities. Research is concentrated in research groups, including the internationally recognised Institute for Health and Human Development.
Other research groups in the School focus on Medicines Development, Human Motor Performance, Infection and Immunity and Applied Sports Science.
This programme has been designed to allow students to gain a Masters award primarily through completion of a substantial research project and will appeal to students hoping to pursue a career in scientific research. Research projects are undertaken within the established research groups providing an opportunity to participate in, and contribute to, ongoing projects.
