The MSc Applied Sports Performance Analysis course is aimed at individuals who wish to gain or develop skills to monitor and record sporting performances as well as liaise with coaches and athletes in the training and competition environments to improve their performance. Individuals with skills in analysis and evaluation of sporting performance are in high demand in order to maximise athlete potential and to minimise risk of injury. The main driver for this is an increased number of people engaging in performance sporting activities and increased media coverage of sport, along with a greater range of technology available to support athletes and coaches.

This course aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to collect, analyse and effectively present data relating to a range of different sports performance parameters.
