About

Specialise in both those areas through a solid grounding in grounding in data visualisation and interpretation, advance sport and exercise sciences and contemporary issues in sport. Build a portfolio of work that will give you a clear advantage when applying for jobs with the Sport and Exercise Sciences programme of the University of Sunderland.

Overview

The Sport and Exercise Sciences programme of the University of Sunderland mixes taught elements with independent research and self-directed study. There is flexibility to pursue personal interests in considerable depth, with guidance and inspiration from supportive tutors. By the end of the course, you will have a portfolio of work, feedback from clients/employers, and a record of practical and academic projects.

Compared to undergraduate studies, this Masters has more emphasis on self-directed lab work, data collection and analysis. We encourage you to undertake real-world internships and build up experience with external clients and sports clubs. This practical experience will complement the rigorous research elements of the course.
