Course summary

Course Overview

This professionally accredited programme is targeted at professionals and practitioners working in the sport and leisure industry who wish to develop their leadership practice and/or seek new opportunities. The programme is equally attractive to recent graduates as well as international students seeking to develop their knowledge and employment potential (via a supervised placement or consulting internship) and who wish to study at Wales's premier University for sport.

Assessment

Assessment varies from written assignments (essays, case studies, reflective diary, research proposals and independent research project); individual and group oral presentations and viva voce examination with students critically evaluating and reflecting on specific issues. The assessment load is generally equivalent to 5000 words per 20 credit module of study. The submission points for assessments are phased throughout the year to manage students' workload with specific dates made available to students at the beginning of each academic year. To allow greater distribution of workload within a module some assessments are staggered to carefully manage schedules for students. Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma levels.

Employability & Careers

The programme is directed towards employability both in terms of developing and enhancing the careers of those already working in the sport sector and preparing immediate graduates and those seeking a change in their career to be competitive in the employment market. There is an emphasis on developing personal management and leadership skills and we encourage students to work together to develop and hone these. The Cardiff School of Sport & Health Sciences has always seen the employability of its postgraduates as one of the central themes that inform the design and delivery of our programmes. This remains the case for the MSc Sport Management and Leadership programme.

Generally, many of our modes of delivery, class based tasks and assessment strategies enable students to experience the context, case formulation and skills associated with the work-based environment of a contemporary sport manager or leader within a controlled and safe educational setting. Additionally and typically, a number of our enrolled students are in employment and the programme learning environment and interactive style of delivery enables them to share and transfer their applied work based learning insights and demonstrate these in assessments. The programme also provides an excellent springboard for students wishing to progress to MPhil/PhD study and further their development within a post graduate research context.
