University of East London

Course Introduction

If you want to work in the sport industry, an MSc will give you more experience and greater flexibility. Aimed at those with a sports science degree or similar, it’s carefully tailored to maximise your employability within sport and offers an unrivalled range of professional expertise and top class facilities.

Our brand new MSc Applied Sport and Exercise Science degree, which you can complete in one year full'time or two years part'time, will give you an excellent grounding in theory and practice. It will offer you the chance to study a generic MSc alongside a specialisation within different areas of Sport and Exercise Science.

This course is designed and tailored to your own preferred specialism in either of the following: Sport Psychology; Strength and Conditioning or Clinical Exercise Physiology.

At the University of East London, we’ve benefited from substantial investment in sport, and in 2011 we were awarded the title ‘most improved sports University in the UK’ by the British University and Colleges Sports Association. Since then we’ve gone from strength to strength.

You will work alongside experts at our £21 million SportsDock complex at our Docklands campus, which houses a specialist strength and conditioning facility, physiology laboratories and new lecture theatres. You would expect no less from a university that's located so close to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
