MSc Sport and Excercise Physiology

Course Description

Our MSc Sport and Exercise Physiology programme is designed for graduates seeking to develop specialist knowledge in Sport and Exercise Physiology. Within the past decade there has been a marked growth in the career opportunities available for sport and exercise biomechanics (eg teaching in further and higher education, World Class Support programmes). Coupled with this growth there has also been an increased need for appropriately qualified and accredited individuals to fill such positions.

Course content

The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences has developed procedures for the accreditation of suitably experienced individuals that stipulate the possession of a relevant form of postgraduate qualification. The MSc in Sport and Exercise Physiology, therefore, provides students with an opportunity to study at a postgraduate level to fulfill the initial requirements for BASES accreditation, to develop their knowledge of the sport and exercise sciences and to increase their skills in applying such knowledge in both sporting and exercise populations

Format and assessment

All students are required to complete four modules in their chosen pathway plus the two modules in research methods and statistics and a research dissertation or support placement. Typical modules include:

◦Applied Techniques in Exercise Physiology
◦Cardio-respiratory Physiology in Sport, Exercise and Disease
◦Professional Skills in Sport and Exercise Physiology: Towards a Theoretical Framework
◦Research Methods and Statistics
◦Skeletal Muscle: Structure, Function and Plasticity
◦The Research Dissertation
◦The Supervised Experience Portfolio

To gain a Postgraduate Certificate students need to complete three modules. Each module is assessed by a 4,000-word assignment

To gain a Postgraduate Diploma students need to complete six modules. Each module is assessed by a 4,000-word assignment

To gain an MSc students need to complete six modules and a dissertation of 12,000-words

Entry Requirements

Candidates should normally have a good honours degree (2:1) in a related area (e.g. Sport Science, Sport Studies or Human Movement Studies). In addition, students will be required to attend interview and satisfy the panel that they are able to complete the course. The interview will also seek to establish potential gaps in knowledge that may hinder student progress. Where such gaps are identified candidates may be referred to preparatory study prior to the start of the course. Non-standard entry via a procedure of accredited prior learning or experience may be granted to applicants with appropriate, but non-standard qualifications.
