The course has two compulsory modules, which all students will undertake: research methods and integrated body systems. The remaining taught elements of the course will be delivered in the form of optional modules in core disciplines within exercise and sports sciences, allowing students to shape the course to their particular interest. A list of all compulsory and optional modules is provided below. Please click on each module to find out about module content, learning outcomes, delivery, and indicative readings. Please contact each module organiser directly if you need more information about a specific module; contact details are provided on each module link.

The modules listed on our website may occasionally be subject to change. For example, as you will appreciate, key members of staff may leave the University and this might necessitate a review of the modules that are offered. Where a module is no longer available, we will let you know as soon as we can and help you make other choices.
