Course info

Summary

The Master of Science (MSc) programme enables you to pursue advanced study in your area of interest with the opportunity to work on independent research.

Programme overview

Studying for an MSc is an opportunity for committed scientists to focus on a relevant area of interest or practise and pursue an advanced qualification. While taught masters will provide you with specialist training in your chosen field, a research masters will develop advanced research skills, working alongside Faculty of Science researchers - many of whom are major contributors in their field.

120-point MSc

Most students enter an MSc following completion of a PGDipSci. You will need to complete 120 points (maximum of 160 points) in a specialisation within one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study (research masters) or four years of part-time study (taught masters). Not all specialisations offer both taught and research options.

240-point MSc

If you enter a MSc directly from an undergraduate degree you will need to complete 240 points (maximum of 280 points) in a specialisation in two years of full-time study or four years of part-time study (research masters) or six years of part-time study (taught masters). Not all specialisations offer both taught and research options.

Postgraduate study in Exercise Sciences is designed to provide you with the opportunity to achieve an advanced level of knowledge in a range of areas relevant to exercise, sport, health and rehabilitation science. You will gain academic and clinical experience required to work as allied health professionals and provide innovative practice across the health industry to assist people living with a wide range of health conditions and disease. You will gain advanced knowledge of the evidence-based processes associated with investigating and understanding how the brain and body function.

Areas of research interests open to exploration include:

  • Biomechanics and computational movement science
  • Exercise physiology and metabolism
  • Exercise and sport psychology
  • Movement neuroscience and motor control

Examples of research topics include:

  • The development of artificial intelligence in gait classification for children with spastic cerebral palsy
  • Investigating non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and thermoregulation during exercise
  • The role of physical activity in adults with depression
  • Understanding the effects of healthy ageing and stroke on neural circuits within the brain and the implications this may have for motor function and recovery
