Course summary

The MSc Sport programmes represent a suite of vocationally oriented taught master’s courses that allow students to specialise in their chosen named pathway.

Through a combination of pathway specific and shared modules, students develop both subject specific knowledge and skills, as well as being exposed to broader elements of the sports sector.

The courses are delivered through a combination of intensive study weeks, weekly classes & seminars, placement learning, and independent study, and are available in both full-time and part-time format in order to allow students to study at their own pace.

What will you study?

Our courses are informed by research and current developments in the discipline and 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.

Assessment

The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or ‘formative’ assignments.

Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade. Assessment methods include a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and a final Research Project. The precise assessment requirements for an individual student in an academic year will vary according to the course selected.
