More about this course

The Sport and Exercise Medicine programme from London Metropolitan University is designed to support you in working on a self-directed programme of research with supervision from a London Met lecturer with expertise in the field. The MRes places an emphasis on research methods developed within the field of sport and exercise medicine and will introduce you to current debates on the nature of research and knowledge in relation to current teaching practice.

The Sport and Exercise Medicine MRes will give you the opportunity to research an area such as sports therapy, sports rehabilitation, chronic health conditions or musculoskeletal disorders. Your course will usually focus on one of these areas, but we welcome research projects that span other disciplines too.

Your supervisor will be able to advise you on career development and on relevant professional bodies to help support progression in your chosen field. You will be encouraged and supported to attend at least one relevant conference and produce at least one publishable paper.

Throughout the course you’ll become highly skilled in writing proposals, reflective reports and essays, using writing as a way of exploring and communicating your areas of research and practice.
