The MSc Applied Sport Physiology aims to develop autonomous, independent and evidence-based practitioners with a detailed knowledge of sport physiology and the ability to apply it to a range of sports or one specific sport (if chosen by the student). There is a strong emphasis on the application of theory to professional practice.
The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or ‘formative’ assignments.
Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade. Assessment methods include a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and a final year independent studies project. Some suggested examples are below but these are still to be finalised.
Typically, this could involve:
- 1 Practical report file
- 1 Written athlete report
- 1 Individual presentation
- 1 Unseen examination
- 1 Video presentation
- 1 Placement portfolio
- 1 Case study
- 1 Research proposal presentation
You will receive feedback on practice assessments and on formal assessments undertaken by coursework. Feedback on examination performance is available upon request from the module leader. Feedback is intended to support learning and you are encouraged to discuss it with personal academic tutors and module tutors as appropriate.
We aim to provide you with feedback on formal coursework assessments within 20 working days of hand-in.
