MSc Elite Performance
The Professional Masters in Elite Performance provides an opportunity for those working in elite performance to complete a programme of study focused on career-based needs and aspirations.
This is an exciting and original initiative, capable of providing a high level, vocationally focused awards to a broad range of professionals, including, but not limited to, coaches (in sport and business), scientists in support roles, medical/paramedical practitioners, military and other structured service providers, and all those involved in the performing arts.
The approaches taken in the programme reflects current thinking on this type of award, being more a matter of guidance and mentoring than a didactic transfer process, closer in many respects to the relationship between supervisor and research student, than that of lecturer and undergraduate student.
The vast majority of student learning is achieved through the use of guided reading, with subsequent supported synthesis and discussion through formal (with the personal tutor) and informal (with peers) methods. Learning is supported with the use of WebCT, and supplemented by a variety of other methods including small group discussion, presentations and data collection/analysis.
Assessment will be via data set analysis reports, academic reports and case studies, a personal development plan, a learning diary, and the MProf Dissertation.
