Course summary

Our Sport and Exercise Medicine MRes is a year-long, 180-credit degree that gives you the opportunity to conduct your own research as well as providing you with an introduction to the practice of teaching in higher education.

You will carry out a research project in an area of sport and exercise medicine of your choosing and gain experience of teaching and learning in higher education - this includes spending 120 hours shadowing teachers and assisting them with their teaching of sport and exercise medicine modules at the University.

More about this course

Our Sport and Exercise Medicine MRes degree course is designed to support you in working on a self-directed programme of research with supervision from a London Met lecturer with expertise in the field. The MRes places an emphasis on research methods developed within the field of sport and exercise medicine and will introduce you to current debates on the nature of research and knowledge in relation to current teaching practice.

Our Sport and Exercise Medicine MRes will give you the opportunity to research an area such as sports therapy, sports rehabilitation, chronic health conditions or musculoskeletal disorders. Your course will usually focus on one of these areas, but we welcome research projects that span other disciplines too.

Your supervisor will be able to advise you on career development and on relevant professional bodies to help support progression in your chosen field. You will be encouraged and supported to attend at least one relevant conference and produce at least one publishable paper.

Throughout the course you’ll become highly skilled in writing proposals, reflective reports and essays, using writing as a way of exploring and communicating your areas of research and practice.

Assessment

Assessment will be primarily focused on the MRes thesis. Other modules will contain a range of assessments including essays, presentations, log books, work experience and exams.

After the course

Graduating from our MRes course opens up career opportunities in research as well as roles as university lecturers or graduate teaching assistants. You could also go on to work in professional research settings, private clinics or professional sports teams.

In addition to a wide range of research and teaching related careers, completing an MRes also opens up further opportunities to advance your research by going on to study an MPhil or PhD.
