The School has offered post-graduate study in Performance Analysis since the first ever Masters in Performance Analysis was developed in 2003. The Cardiff School of Sport & Health Sciences has a unique Centre of Performance Analysis boasting high-spec teaching and practical based laboratories with a multitude of world-leading software and resources available.

Assessment

With the exception of independent research project (Dissertation) all module assessments are based upon 5,000 words or equivalent. Assessment methods are designed to give the student opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of theoretical, applied and professional practice in the most relevant manner, and include practical presentations, production of resources to highlight analysis, analysis reports and critical reviews. The independent research project (dissertation) can be presented either as a traditional 12,000-word thesis or in the format of a journal article, and will be defended by an oral examination (viva). Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma levels.
