Course summary

Our MSc Strength and Conditioning provides the knowledge, skills and experience to develop athletes across the spectrum of athletic achievement, from participation to high performance.

The programme provides bespoke research-informed modules to develop your knowledge of all topics relevant to strength and conditioning. The programme capitalises on the University's sporting strengths to enable the provision of hands-on coaching experience, designed to give you the tools to develop athletic performance at the highest level.

Study runs across three terms from October to September. During the autumn and spring terms, the course will focus on the science and practice of strength and conditioning, as well as the fundamental science underpinning performance adaptations. During the spring term, you will also immerse yourself in the strength and conditioning environment and have the opportunity to apply for an extended coaching placement with either Loughborough University performance athletes or external sport partners.

The programme culminates in a substantial independent research project which runs from late spring through to the end of the programme. During this period you will apply the knowledge and techniques you have learned to answer a scientific question relevant to strength and conditioning that will further develop your understanding.

In undertaking our master's in strength and conditioning, you will be joining the number one ranked institution for sports-related subjects in the world (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020) and a sporting landscape that is without parallel in any other UK university. This diverse and friendly community provides incredible opportunities to learn and discuss, as well as broadening your overall postgraduate experience.

Teaching is delivered in several state-of-the-art performance and laboratory facilities including the Technogym Centre for Excellence - our world-class athlete development facility. This facility includes 23 weightlifting platforms, Eleiko bars and plates, two sets of inground force plates, a custom isometric mid-thigh pull dynamometer, and a 20m tartan track. The Centre for Excellence is not only home to all Loughborough University performance athletes, but also a primary training hub for the English Institute of Sport, and for several national governing bodies of sport.

Who should study this programme?

This programme is ideal for students aspiring to work with elite sportspeople at high levels of athletic performance, applying strength and conditioning knowledge and cutting-edge research to achieve peak potential.
