The course has two compulsory modules, which all students will undertake: research methods and integrated body systems. The remaining taught elements of the course will be delivered in the form of optional modules in core disciplines within exercise and sports sciences, allowing students to shape the course to their particular interest. A list of all compulsory and optional modules is provided below. Please click on each module to find out about module content, learning outcomes, delivery, and indicative readings. Please contact each module organiser directly if you need more information about a specific module; contact details are provided on each module link.
Optional Modules – you need to select four modules
All students will also undertake a research project in their chosen discipline. Any member of staff could act as supervisor of this research project. You will find a list of academic staff and their interests here.
Please note: The modules listed on the website for this programme are regularly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and informed by the latest research and teaching methods. Unless indicated otherwise, the modules listed for this programme are for students starting in 2017. We aim to publish any changes to compulsory modules and programme structure for 2018 entry by 1 September 2017 and recommend you refer back to this page shortly after that date for any changes. On rare occasions, we may need to make unexpected changes to compulsory modules after that date; in this event we will contact offer holders as soon as possible to inform or consult them as appropriate.
