Several of our staff have active leadership roles in learned societies and are editors of leading biological science journals. The Centre for Sports and Exercise Science has been consistently highly ranked for research, teaching and student satisfaction. Our staff are involved in a wide range of research activities, from improving athletic performance through pacing strategies, to monitoring child health and improving practice in cardiac rehabilitation. Our successful Human Performance Unit (HPU) provides educational and coaching services, health-related exercise programmes and athlete testing, as well as unique opportunities for you to further your studies and research in these areas. Our MSc Cardiac Rehabilitation focuses on enabling you to provide evidence-based physical activity advice and to manage intervention programmes for patients at risk of, or suffering from, a variety of cardiovascular disorders. This is an interdisciplinary course offering you an academic qualification with a clear vocational target. You take six taught modules: five core and one optional. We provisionally timetable teaching for Tuesdays and Thursdays if you are studying on a full-time basis, so you alternate annually between these days if studying part-time.
