Sport

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

When studying sport, students usually choose between focusing on the business and strategic elements of sports or the physiological aspects. Those studying the former typically have the potential to coach or manage professional sports organizations while the latter aid in physical training.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
