The Sports Science - Performance Optimisation with a Focus on Elite Sport programme at Mid Sweden University is delivered as part-time and full-time programmes at an advanced level and focuses on performance analysis, sports physiology, elite training and coaching/leadership in the field of Sports Science. The program gives students the opportunity to develop and use their practical and theoretical knowledge to better handle complex situations in sport, including at the elite level.
The programme incorporates a number of key components which relate to the complex operations of national and international elite organisations, as well as scientific theory and methods and an independent research project. The theoretical components will be delivered online, but with seven compulsory on-campus meetings/seminars in Östersund during the period of study.
The programme is run in collaboration between the Department of Health Sciences (Sports Science programme) and the Swedish Winter Sports Research Centre (SWSRC). Furthermore, some aspects of the programme may take place at other nearby facilities, such as the SWSRC, Östersund´s National Ski Stadium and Åre National Arena.
