MSc by Research

By studying the MSc by Research within the Section of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Canterbury Christ Church University you will be joining an experienced team of researchers and supervisors who deliver Internationally Excellent and World Leading research in this field.

Students from across our MSc by Research subject areas share a programme of study that explores the challenges common to all researchers. After these taught modules, students will then undertake an individual research project that will take the form of a dissertation or other research output agreed with their supervisor (e.g. two journal articles).
