Students will complete the full MSc over a period of 3 years. They will undertake the courses in the core section in Year 1 and complete one X, one Y and one Z option from the options section below in Year 2. In Year 3 they will undertake their research project.

The MSc in Sport and Exercise Science and Medicine online programme will involve a residential week in Glasgow in Year 1 to acquire the practical skills required for the three lab courses (Physiological & Exercise Testing 1 - Aerobic Fitness and Physical Activity, Physiological & Exercise Testing 2 - Strength, Power and Intensity Domains, Human Physiological & Metabolic Assessment). For those selecting either of the two sports injuries options (Sports Injuries: Clinical Sports Injuries and Sports Injuries: Scientific Basis of Prevention and Rehabilitation) in Year 2, there will be a further residential period (3 days) to learn hands-on skills required. If anyone has any concerns about being able to attend these residential periods then please contact Dr Stuart Gray (stuart.gray@glasgow.ac.uk) to discuss possible alternatives.

YEAR 1

Evidence Based Medicine (20 credits)

This course is designed to provide core skills in critical review, communications, data handling, and the principles of evidence-based medicine and research in order to equip students for their own practice and to enable them to evaluate evidence, cite appropriate references, and understand the principles by which a programme of research is undertaken.

Medical Statistics (10 credits)

This course provides an introduction to medical statistics, covering a number of the most commonly used basic analyses from both clinical and laboratory studies. The aim is to ensure that students can appraise the literature that includes the methods covered and also are able to use these methods to analyse datasets themselves.

Physiological Exercise Testing 1 - Aerobic Fitness and Physical Activity (10 credits)

This course is designed to enable students to understand the principles, assumptions, strengths and limitations of commonly used methods to assess cardiorespiratory fitness and physical activity and for them to gain practical experience (residential week) in performing these tests.

Physiological Exercise Testing 2 - Strength, power and intensity domains (10 credits)

This course is designed to enable students to understand the principles, assumptions, strengths and limitations of commonly used methods to assess strength, power, and thresholds of exercise intensity domains (e.g. lactate threshold, critical power), and for them to gain practical experience (residential week) in performing these tests.

Human physiological & metabolic assessment (10 credits)

This course is designed to enable students to understand the principles, assumptions, strengths and limitations of commonly used methods to assess aspects of human physiological and metabolic function (e.g. metabolic rate and substrate utilisation, glucose tolerance, vascular function, body composition) and for them to gain practical experience (residential week) in performing these tests.

YEAR 2

X Options

Physical Activity & Health: public health, policy and behaviour change

This course is designed to provide students with an in-depth critical knowledge and understanding of physical activity policy development, the key concepts in physical activity behaviour change in public health and the promotion of physical activity at a population level and with specific targeted populations. This course is suitable for all students on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine

Sports Injuries: scientific basis of prevention and rehabilitation

This course was designed to provide the student with an in-depth critical knowledge and understanding of the epidemiology of sports injuries to understand the relationship between gender, stage of development and level of participation; the aetiology of sports injuries to understand the functional impact of sporting performance and recreational activity; the mechanisms of tissue regeneration and understand how they influence the choice of specific interventions for treatment and rehabilitation. This course is suitable for all students on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine programme.

Clinical Sports Injuries

This course aims to improve background knowledge, clinical examination skills and techniques (residential period) for the treatment and rehabilitation of common sports injuries. This course is clinical in nature and is suitable for registered health professionals (including suitably qualified doctors or HPC or equivalent physiotherapists).

Y Options

Physical Activity and Health: Biological Mechanisms

This course is designed to provide the student with an in-depth critical knowledge and understanding of the relationship between physical activity; fitness and health; the biological mechanisms underpinning the beneficial effects of physical activity on health; how the quality and quantity of physical activity influences health benefits. This course is suitable for all students on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine programme.

Ergogenic Aids for Exercise Performance 

This course is designed to provide students with knowledge and information about up-to-date research regarding strategies to enhance exercise performance, with a particular focus on strength rather than endurance performance. The course will cover a broad range of ergogenic aids, including nutrition. This course is suitable for all students on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine programme. It will be taught in year two of the MSc Sport & Exercise Science and Medicine via distance learning. The online sessions will total 30 hours.

Sport and Exercise Medicine in Practice

This course provides students with background knowledge and skills to offer practical advice when working with athletes and teams in a sports medicine environment. The course aims to introduce the common clinical challenges in Sport and Exercise Medicine, to explore the ethical and medico-legal challenges of Sport and Exercise Medicine, and to develop an understanding of the multi-disciplinary team involved in Sport and Exercise Medicine. This course is suitable for all students on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine programme.

Z Options

Cellular and molecular exercise physiology

This course is designed to provide the student with an in depth and critical knowledge of how cell and molecules relate to organ and organismal physiology and how cellular and molecular systems respond to exercise and physical activity. The course will also provide the student with skills and knowledge to evaluate how cellular and molecular adaptations to regular physical activity and exercise training contribute to increased fitness and improved exercise performance. This course is suitable for all students on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine programme.

The World Class Athlete : nature, nurture and maximising performance

This course is designed to provide the student with an in depth critical knowledge and understanding which will enable them to evaluate the genetic determinants of elite human sporting performance and the environmental factors determining elite human sporting performance. The course will also enable the student to recognise how both nature and nurture impact on elite human sporting performance. This course is suitable for all students on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine programme.

Exercise in Clinical Populations

In this course students will learn about the aetiology and pathology of a number of chronic diseases and the role of physical activity in their prevention and management.

YEAR 3

Dissertation/Project (60 credits)

This element of the Programme is designed to enable the student to plan and execute an independent research project, audit or critical review of the literature in the area of cardiovascular sciences and to produce a written dissertation and to present and discuss the conclusion of the research.
