“What I liked best about MSc Sport (Sport Science) course was the platform of opportunity it created into professional sporting environments. The university pathed connections into a range of sports, from grass roots right up to elite levels, allowing me to gain research and testing experience in a variety of settings, from amateur rugby league to elite football and cricket. In addition to sporting environments, opportunities in clinical settings such as physiotherapy were also widely available, allowing me to expand my portfolio, transferring and developing knowledge from the classroom to real life situations.

“The modules covered in the course went hand in hand with opportunities presented. The content provides great insights into concepts of sport physiology and psychology, with the ability to put them into practice instantly with the classrooms being side by side to the high-performance labs and sport pitches. Furthermore, to cap off all experiences in research and sport science gained, the dissemination module allowed me to present and further my year of research into the professional world. I published and presented my research at the UK Strength and Conditioning Association, allowing me to develop my presentation skills and network with top names in sports science and S&C.

“On account of all the opportunities of experience and development presented by the MSc Sport (Sport Science) course, I was able to successfully secure a job at one of the top esports organisations in the UK, EXCEL Esports. I therefore highly recommend this course and would like to personally thank my supervisor Mark Antrobus for all his support throughout my MSc Journey.”
