MRes Programme Overview
MRes programmes are aimed at students who wish to gain more extensive training in research in sport, health and exercise sciences and who may be interested in pursuing a PhD/research career. They are designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of the principles and application of research design and analytical methods relevant to their scientific discipline. Students will also learn about the importance of conducting research with reference to ethical and regulatory guidelines and develop their theoretical understanding of research at the forefront of their chosen discipline. MRes programmes facilitate the integration of theory and professional practice and emphasis student autonomy of learning.
