Module description

This module is part of the continuing programme of skills-focussed modules that provides you with the opportunity to develop some of the skills you need as a Sport and Exercise Scientist and ensure you can compete successfully in the job market. In the Sports Science summer school you will apply some of the basic science and research skills that you acquired in lectures and practical classes during the first year to the identification and investigation of research questions relevant to performance in a variety of sports.

In the statistics and data analysis part of the module you will practice and extend your skills in processing, evaluating and analyzing data, basic tools of the Sports Scientist's trade. Finally, this module will provide you with a structured opportunity to think about your future, about how the academic, sporting and social experiences of your University life are contributing to your development as an individual and what you need to do to fulfil your hopes and potential.
