All modules are delivered by IPEP staff who currently work within elite level sport and business and who publish research that is judged to be of Internationally Excellent or World Leading . There will be ample opportunities for you to interact with these staff members including personal online tutorials with module leaders, group work and tutorials. You will also work on a one to one basis with IPEP academic staff who will supervise you on dissertation, or research project modules. 


All the School’s postgraduate programmes from Bangor University , are designed (with further training where appropriate) to enhance the career prospects of Sport, Health and Exercise Science graduates. 

Career destinations of Bangor postgraduates include:  the Home Country Sports Institutes, National Governing Bodies, the Olympic Medical Institute, Professional sports teams and organisations, the fitness industry, the NHS (hospitals and Primary Care Trusts), Teaching and Education (after completing a Postgraduate Certificate of Education). Further postgraduate study (i.e., Doctoral research) is another vocational route.
