The MSc Sport, Health and Exercise Science course represents the academic and research interests of exercise and health scientists at the University.

During your postgraduate studies, you will conduct supervised and independent research work at our Sports Park and at our state-of-the-art environmental, exercise physiology and body composition laboratories on Glyntaff campus. The University of South Wales is 15th overall in the UK for world leading research in sports and exercise science – there is a strong research culture and our students are encouraged to engage with this from the beginning of their studies.

Interactive, e-learning platforms are used to support your learning throughout the course, as well as the excellent library facilities.
