Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

  • Focus on your chosen sport and exercise specialism
  • Complete a year-long research project of your choice
  • Discuss your research in workshops and seminars

Sport and Exercise at Winchester equips you to develop your expertise in a specific aspect of sport and exercise. It offers bespoke postgraduate provision from a wide range of sport and exercise-focused backgrounds, giving you the opportunity to tailor your programme of study to your own specific areas of interest.

You have the opportunity to focus on physiology, biomechanics, coaching, sociology, strength and conditioning, business, exercise and health, or medicine. You are supported in making this choice, and your specialism is reflected in the title of the degree you are awarded. The programme also offers you the opportunity to undertake a substantial year-long research project of your choice under the guidance of expert staff from the Department of Sport and Exercise.

You study core modules including Scientific Research Methods, Scientific Research Review, along with the extended research project. You are also encouraged to actively participate in seminar and workshop sessions and to develop your ability to reflect critically on your own experiences and share these reflections with others. The tutors support you in your enjoyment of autonomous learning, and foster your passion for the subject and the process of learning.

Assessment

A wide variety of assessment types are used. These include written assignments (including essays and case studies); presentations (including oral and poster presentations); portfolios (a flexible combination of assessment types which usually include providing evidence of acquired skills/competencies and critical reflection on personal development); projects; and research proposals. Students also complete a substantial independent research project.

Our validated courses may adopt a range of means of assessing your learning. An indicative, and not necessarily comprehensive, list of assessment types you might encounter includes essays, portfolios, supervised independent work, presentations, written exams, or practical performances.

We ensure all students have an equal opportunity to achieve module learning outcomes. As such, where appropriate and necessary, students with recognised disabilities may have alternative assignments set that continue to test how successfully they have met the module's learning outcomes.

Careers

Graduates progress to a wide range of professions, including academia. A particularly strong route is going onto a Doctoral research programme (PhD) or obtaining professional qualifications in the sport and exercise sciences (BASES). Other avenues include coaching, teaching, and working in the sports business industry.
