Course summary

Gain a deeper understanding of your chosen research area with a challenging combination of taught modules, research training and supervised research.

At Worcester you'll benefit from a professional and challenging relationship with your supervisor - who will be an academic working at the forefront of their discipline. As well as access to the full range of University facilities.

Key features

The Programme aims to prepare students:

  • for doctoral level study
  • to engage in a career in socio-cultural research in a HE or industrial context
  • to meet the global need for highly trained individuals who can make informed decisions on future research directions
  • to think independently and develop a critical approach to the analysis of data and interpretation of published research.

A student will not be permitted to progress to the thesis module stage of their programme until they have passed all of the taught modules.

Our courses are informed by research and current developments in the discipline and by feedback from students, external examiners and employers. Modules do therefore change periodically in the interests of keeping the course relevant and reflecting best practice. The most up-to-date information will be available to you once you have accepted a place and registered for the course. If there are insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, this might not be offered, but we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative.

Where could it take you?

Generally, MRes graduates will pursue a career either in academia or in industry. The knowledge, training and skills students receive will provide a springboard for vocational careers in the sport and exercise industry and education as well as by going on to PhD study in academia. Emphasis on high level academic attainment and the development of transferable skills will generate job opportunities in aspects of social sciences and other areas of employment.

As well as being a qualification in its own right, an MRes qualification in Socio-Cultural Studies of Sport and Exercise is an important pathway into doctoral study in the Social Sciences. Students with this qualification will be better placed to progress to successful doctoral study at the University of Worcester or elsewhere.
