Strength and Conditioning has emerged as a distinct and popular area of expertise in sport science, predominantly from within the discipline of physiology although frequently requiring knowledge and understanding of inter-disciplinary applied sport science and coaching, providing the rationale for this programme.
The Strength and Conditioning programme from The University of Edinburgh combines both the theoretical and practical elements of strength and conditioning to identify and examine a wide range of academic and practitioner needs. Students gain excellent applied experience and professional development opportunities in parallel with the taught programme, using established links with local and national sports teams and governing bodies.
The qualification and skills you gain in this programme will complement the applied experience and any professional accreditation for those aspiring to be practitioners at the cutting edge of strength and conditioning. Primary roles exist in the sports performance area, but you may also apply your skills to work in the areas of exercise and fitness, rehabilitation and the wider sports industry.
The masters degree is also a springboard for further research, either within academia or the private sector. The highly transferable skills you gain in areas such as communication and project management can also be applied to roles in any field.
