Sport and Exercise Physiology

The British association of sport and exercise sciences (BASES) has developed procedures for the accreditation of suitably experienced individuals that stipulate the possession of a relevant form of postgraduate qualification; the course therefore provides students with an opportunity to study at a postgraduate level to fulfil the initial requirements for BASES accreditation, to develop their knowledge of the sport and exercise sciences and to increase their skills in applying such knowledge in both sporting and exercise populations.

Entry requirements

Honours degree (2.1) in a related area (e.g. sport science, sport studies or human movement studies); in addition, students are required to attend interview and satisfy the panel that they are able to complete the course; the interview also seeks to establish potential gaps in knowledge that may hinder student progress; where such gaps are identified candidates may be referred to preparatory study prior to the start of the course; non-standard entry via a procedure of accredited prior learning or experience may be granted to applicants with appropriate, but non-standard qualifications.

Course modules

Modules include: Applied techniques in exercise physiology; cardio-respiratory physiology in sport, exercise and disease; professional skills in sport and exercise physiology: towards a theoretical framework; research methods and statistics 1; research methods and statistics 2; skeletal muscle: structure, function and plasticity; the research dissertation; the supervised experience portfolio.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on assignments and a dissertation.
