'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.'
A degree in sport science, or related subject (minimum 2:1 first degree). In addition, applicants with alternative backgrounds and a degree level qualification will also be considered if they are able to demonstrate the potential to work at Masters level and have experiences relevant to a course covering the discipline of Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology.
