The new programme is particular timely given the increasing emphasis placed on the utilization of physical activity and sport as a means to improving health (e.g. obesity reduction and prevention). The MSc offers expert postgraduate training to meet the needs of professional exercise scientists and those who wish to achieve this level in their careers.
The programme provides you with the opportunity to examine biological, psycho-social and socio-cultural variables with a view to develop in-depth knowledge and skills in a particular area of interest within the discipline.
This is one of six programmes on a modular MSc scheme: Education in Health & Social Care, Health Promotion (HP), Public Health (PH), Physiotherapy and a combination of HP with PH being the others (see separate Programme specs). For successful completion of the Masters programme, students will complete four taught modules comprising 2 core modules, 1 programme specific optional module and 1 other module (which can be either the second programme specific option or an elective module) and also a research dissertation within their chosen subject.
The Foundations in Research module is core for all programmes and the second core module is programme specific. The core module for the MSc in Exercise Science and Health is Physical Activity and Exercise. Full details of the MSc Programmes are available on request.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
For entry to this programme, students are required to have qualifications equivalent to a honours degree from a UK university in a relevant subject or experience. For overseas students there is a requirement for an IELTS score of 6.5 or higher (or equivalent), TOEFL score of 650 or an equivalent. Applicants whose qualifications do not conform to these criteria may be admitted to the programme at the admission tutors discretion which will normally involve an interview.
No work experience is required.
