Further areas of study
Examples of modules we have recently offered include Physiological Assessment, Biomechanical Assessment and Psychological Assessment.
The ‘Assessment’ modules introduce the fundamental
principles that underlie the assessment techniques within those disciplines,
and consider the advantages and disadvantages of adopting particular protocols
and practices. Our Research Methods module, which we normally offer, provides an advanced understanding of the quantitative and qualitative approaches required to appropriately investigate the field of sport and exercise science.
Applications are invited from those who have an
2:1 honours degree classification (or above).
