You’ll benefit from access to some of the world’s most advanced facilities at an education establishment, including new £8.8 million state-of-the-art Sports Academy equipment, to support taught and research degrees, as well as PhDs.
We also train competing student athletes on campus across 10 sporting disciplines – the ideal subjects for postgraduate research and learning. You don’t need to take only our word for it – our students have given us 100 per cent student satisfaction for all postgraduate part-time courses (Postgraduate Student Experience Survey).


Our aim is to conduct research that leads to real-world outcomes for everyone, from professional athletes and coaches to those undertaking exercise to maintain health or overcome specific health conditions.

We pride ourselves on enabling our students to learn from highly knowledgeable and dedicated lecturers – many of whom are practising professionals in their area of expertise – and some of the very best sports facilities you will find anywhere in the world.

We’re committed to providing the highest standards of teaching excellence, investing more than £50 million in our specialist facilities on campus in the past decade. Our strong and growing relationships with international and national sports clubs and associations provides opportunities for students and research projects.

You’ll have access to world-class technology to enhance research, including a biomechanics laboratory and a human performance laboratory, and a new full-size floodlit 3G pitch with integrated video analysis.
