Course summary

Our MSc Applied Sport Performance Analysis degree offers you an excellent platform to develop advanced knowledge and the skills to analyse and develop performance in elite sport.

The course has been created in collaboration with industry experts and combines high-quality teaching from applied practitioners, with extensive experience in elite sport, and world-renowned research active academics.

You will have access to market-leading performance analysis hardware and software, used in professional sports organisations, and develop an advanced competency in best practice processes.

You will benefit from the unique internal and external sporting partners at Loughborough to provide authentic and challenging learning opportunities. These have been designed to test and develop the broad range of competencies required of an elite performance analyst.

The course will also challenge you to develop a wider understanding of how to create effective learning environments, high-performance cultures and work on your own communication and inter-personal skills. All vital areas to achieve impact from the insights acquired through performance analysis projects.

Study runs across three terms from October to September. The course will focus on the science, workflows and applied practice of performance analysis and how it interacts with and supports the coaching and decision-making process. You will develop your understanding of sports analytics and visualization and how to tell impactful stories using complex data sets.

During your course you will immerse yourself in performance analysis support, performing an extended placement with either Loughborough University performance athletes or external sport partners. This will help you develop and test your skills in an applied setting, providing additional opportunities to analyse and reflect on your own professional practice and develop robust plans for your continuing personal development.

The programme culminates with an applied independent research project which runs through to the end of the programme. During this period, you will apply the knowledge and techniques you have learned to answer an applied sport performance analysis question that will further develop your understanding of the subject area.

In undertaking our master's in performance analysis, you will be joining the number one-ranked School for sports-related subjects in the world and a sporting landscape that is without parallel in any other UK university. This diverse and friendly community provides incredible opportunities to learn and discuss your development collaboratively with other ambitious individuals, as well as broadening your overall postgraduate experience.
