Program Description

Sport & Exercise Science - MSc/PgD/PgC

Cardiff Metropolitan University

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 a modular pathway within the Cardiff School of Sport's Postgraduate Scheme in Sport . The flexible programme is centred on research-informed professional practice and adopts a student-centred approach to develop understanding of contemporary issues in sport and exercise through multi- and independent discipline (biomechanics, psychology & physiology) perspectives.

The programme assists students in exploring internship opportunities within applied sport science and clinical practice, and further supports student engagement within professional bodies (e.g. British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences: BASES).

Employability & Careers

Many graduates of the programme are currently studying for a research degree (MPhil/PhD) in a related subject within Cardiff Metropolitan and at other UK institutions. Graduates have typically pursued careers as clinical and applied science consultants, lecturers (further and higher education) and, in the fitness and training industry. Recent graduates have explicitly secured employment as applied sport scientists in the National Institutes of Sport (e.g. English Institute of Sport, Sport Wales), within UK academic departments (e.g. at the University of Bedfordshire) and within clinical practices.
