Course summary

Course Overview

Our MSc Sport and Exercise Science has been designed to capture the sport and exercise science aspects of the sector in an immersive way, which explores how the sports sciences overlay and work together. For example, you might study the physiological and psychological effects for athletes travelling across time zones to compete in a hot environment, exploring this in the environmental chamber in our BASES accredited lab. Or you might undertake biomechanical analysis using our high speed cameras and force plates to predict injury before it happens and then prescribe conditioning to reduce the risk.

MSc Sport and Exercise Science is specifically focused towards providing students with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the discipline through the inclusion of unique field based opportunities. You’ll join a high performance trip to St George's Park, home of England Football, where you’ll can gain an appreciation of sport science support at the highest level. You’ll also benefit from opportunities with our key partners, such as Plymouth Argyle FC and Plymouth Raiders, and the Womens FA High Performance Centre. Other opportunities include hands on experience with health checks and a range of patients in our on-site Health and Wellbeing clinics.

You’ll be given the opportunity to apply and develop knowledge, practical skills and values in applied sport and exercise science contexts to obtain professional and personal progression. It is anticipated that students will look to pursue a career in sport and exercise science and follow the route to become a BASES accredited sport and exercise scientist. The MSc programme is a crucial step towards achieving this because it enables students to achieve hours which count towards the Supervised Experience required to become a BASES accredited sport scientist.

How will you be taught?

You will be taught through a combination of intensive days, workshops, lectures, seminars, lab practicals, interactive group discussion and field work.

How will you be assessed?

Assessment methods are varied and include coursework such as essays, reports, portofolios and your research thesis. There are also many practical based assessments embedded within modules.

What might you become?

Our MSc Sport and Exercise Science is designed to help you progress within the sport and exercise science sector. This could be to help you secure an internship as a new graduate, or to allow you to apply for promotions if you are already an experienced practitioner in employment.
