'Studying for a Masters online was a real challenge, but the delivery format gave me a unique chance to obtain a postgraduate qualification in Applied Sport and Exercise Science. There are no opportunities for postgraduate study in Sport and Exercise either locally or regionally, and my desire to keep working while studying meant that the online Masters from Staffordshire University fitted my circumstances perfectly. I am sure there are many others, who, like me, really want to develop their qualifications, but are constrained by the times we live in. This award has provided the soultion for me. It has been demanding, but ultimately a very rewarding experience and one which I would strongly recommend to others.'
To apply for this course you will need an Undergraduate Honours degree (grade 2:2 or higher) in Sport and Exercise Science or a related discipline. Your degree must be from a UK University or International equivalent. You must be able to demonstrate a good standard of English.
