Sport and Exercise Science

?With named pathway awards for the MSc in Biomechanics, Physiology, Physical Activity and Health. The internationally recognised research expertise in the Cardiff School of Sport is uniquely combined with one of the leading centres for student sport in the UK to provide a popular MSc programme in Sport and Exercise Science. The programme is contained within the Cardiff School of Sport's Postgraduate Scheme in Sport. The programme is centred on research-informed learning and professional practice and adopts a student-centred approach to develop understanding of contemporary issues in sport and exercise through multi- and independent discipline perspectives. Within the programme, students can elect to specialise in specific named pathways in Biomechanics, Physiology and Physical Activity & Health or within the general pathway of Sport and Exercise Sciences. The programme assists students in exploring internship opportunities within research, applied sport science and clinical practice, and further supports student engagement within professional bodies (e.g. British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences: BASES).

Course modules

The programmes' core modules are centred on enhancing awareness of the professional issues and research applications associated with being a sport and exercise scientist in alignment with the informed practice of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES). The option modules are structured to allow students to tailor their programme based on personal interests within the respective disciplines and the possibility of selecting modules leading to a final MSc award with named pathways allows for recognition of specialities within the programme. Students may alternatively maintain a breadth in their areas of study by combining multiple discipline-based option modules. See Cardiff Met website for full module lists.

Assessment methods

With the exception of the independent research project (dissertation), all module assessment is based upon 5,000 words or equivalent.
