Hear from our graduates

“There are no opportunities for postgraduate study in sport and exercise either locally or regionally, and my desire to keep working whilst studying meant that the online masters from Staffs fitted my circumstances perfectly. It has been a demanding, but ultimately very rewarding experience and one which I would recommend to others.” Lorinda Slater, MSc Applied Sport and Exercise Science

“My time on the Sport and Exercise Psychology MSc at Staffordshire University was extremely rewarding. The distance learning aspect of the course was unique and challenged me to take ownership of my work whilst having fantastic interactive online resources available to communicate and share ideas with fellow students and tutors.” Joe Dixon, MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology

“Based in the USA as a full time NCAA College Head Golf Coach I researched for over a year to find the right MSc program to fit my career, experience and passion for advanced learning and the online MSc in Sports Coaching delivered. The evidence-based approach to each module has allowed me to understand why I think the way I do, what me team and individual players and influenced by, why they respond to those influences and how I can challenge them to be, and think, better.” Suzanne Strudwick, MSc Sports Coaching
