Applied Sport and Exercise Science is an established discipline with growing opportunities for qualified professionals.

Opportunities for professional training at doctoral level are increasingly important for vocational careers within both sport and exercise. The professional doctorate facilitates the creation and interpretation of new professional knowledge. To obtain the award you will need to complete a related Masters programme or MPhil and spend two or more years acquiring a range of supervised skills connected with professional skills, interventions, consultancy, research, and teaching and training (as facilitated through this course).

The programme is underpinned by a strong focus on equipping the future Applied Sport and Exercise Scientists for a range of professional scenarios.

The programme can be studied full time or part time. Full time students must be enrolled for a minimum of two years, and for part-time students this is adjusted pro rata.

You will be developing your skills in teaching and training (education and dissemination), research, consultancy and demonstrating that you have the generic professional skills needed as an Applied Sport and Exercise Scientist. This is achieved through your own work-based learning experiences, taught sessions on the programme and extensive supervision.
