Course summary

Overview

Sport and exercise science research at LSBU is of high quality; 73% of our research into Sport and Exercise Sciences was awarded the two highest ratings: 4 world-leading or 3 internationally excellent, for overall quality by the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. 90% received 4 or 3 for 'impact' (reach and significance) and 75% a 3 for 'environment' - "conducive to producing research of internationally excellent quality, in terms of its vitality and sustainability".

A member of staff, expert in the chosen field, is directly responsible for guiding and supporting your research programme. As a research student you'll become part of our thriving academic community. Most research work in the field takes place as part of the Sport and Exercise Science Research Centre. Expertise and possible research areas include:

  • movement neuroscience
  • nutrition and metabolism
  • clinical and applied sciences

A MRes, by definition, is an original contribution to knowledge. A research degree is different from a taught course. Research students are expected to self-direct their learning with support from a supervisory team.

Employability

Research skills development

All research students are required to participate in a Key Skills Development programme aimed at developing transferable skills in addition to those employed in carrying out research. Training in research methods is available through frequent research seminars.

When necessary the research student can follow, in part, relevant Masters courses available within the School and in particular units on research methodology. In some cases, research students are encouraged to follow other courses available within the University or externally aimed at improving their general expertise in their chosen areas.

In addition, they may be encouraged to follow language courses aimed at improving their oral and written skills - both essential in their future careers.
