Course content

Our MRes in Sports Science is an innovative opportunity for you to engage in a substantive individual research project with personal supervision and targeted research training.

Course overview

The aim of our MRes is to give you a supportive environment in which to develop and utilise your research skills in specific areas of interest.

Why Study Sport and Exercise Sciences (MRes) with us?

You will be taught and supervised by experienced, research-active staff. A large proportion of their research is internationally recognised and has direct impact with real-world practice (i.e. performance, health policy, teaching). Many staff are also engaged with external partners, including sports governing bodies, professional sports clubs and health trusts, which provide applied and research opportunities for students.

The above features ensure that you will be provided with appropriate research and applied training that aims to enhance your employability.

What will I learn?

Extensive research training, using both quantitative and qualitative approaches, will involve proposal development, application for research ethics and completion of an empirical research project. In addition, you will have the opportunity to develop practical and theoretical knowledge to inform best practice and improve your employability.

How will I be taught?

Teaching will involve lectures, seminars, practical, group work, and role-play.

You will have access to dedicated sport and exercise science laboratories, sport facilities, a library and IT laboratories.

Contact hours are 200 hours’ study per taught module, including 40 hours’ contact time; and 1,400 hours’ study for the research project, including 40 hours’ tutor contact.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed via written assessments and oral presentations for taught modules, and via a literature review, journal article and oral presentation for the research project. Note there are no formal examinations.
