Course summary

A new integrative sports science course that incorporates elements of sports physiology, strength and conditioning, and sports nutrition relevant to the performance athlete.

Course overview

In the field of applied sports science, it has become apparent that whilst specialist sports scientists are in demand, there is a growing need for people who have the knowledge and skills across several sub-disciplines; qualities that will enable them to enhance their overall contribution to performance development. This course has been designed to reflect that demand and will expose you to aspects of contemporary sports physiology, strength and conditioning, and sports nutrition.

Excellent collaborative links with elite national and international athletes and teams will also give you the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience of delivering sports science.

Why study this course with us?

As well as increasing your theoretical and empirical knowledge within Performance Science, this course comprises core modules that are designed to provide opportunities to enhance your abilities in a range of transferable skills, and also to develop the basic competencies that will aid your personal development should you wish to pursue accreditation in the future, for example with BASES or UKSCA.

The course is taught by an experienced team of tutors who have specialist research interests and publications within the sub-disciplines. All teaching has an applied focus, with full use made of the BASES-accredited sports science laboratories.

The above critical elements of teaching excellence and research, combined with the applied practical experience of many of the staff who have worked with national and international athletes and teams, means that during all lectures you will not only be challenged intellectually but will also gain experience and knowledge of how research informs and is informed by practice.

This course is suitable for: (i) students who wish to embark upon a career in the sports sciences domain and who are seeking postgraduate study with the opportunity of supervised experience; (ii) practitioners already working in the field (coaches, trainers, and therapists); (iii) those looking to extend their knowledge before moving into the research and academic sectors.
