Essential Principles in Sports Science

This module provides an introduction to the various sub-disciplines that constitute sports science.

Practical Sport Experience

This module is intended to introduce students to the practical aspects of sports performance. The module will also develop specific coaching and psychology attributes required to develop sports performance.

Science, Research and Application

This module is intended to introduce students to the study of Sports courses in higher education at London Metropolitan University as well as developing life long skills in organisation and application of knowledge. This module also includes the theory and practical abilities to apply safe and effective massage to a sports person. In addition, the module introduces students to methods of data analysis using computer software.

Sports Anatomy and Physiology

This module is a broadly-based introduction to human anatomy and systems physiology, with a bias towards the specific interests of those studying for sports-related degrees. The module also includes background material in chemistry, biochemistry and cell biology.

Sport Rehabilitation

This module develops students’ ability to research, plan, provide and justify an appropriate rehabilitation programme for the early, intermediate, late and pre-discharge stages of sports/dance injury

Sport Therapy

This module is focused upon the safe and effective clinical examination and assessment (E&A) of the peripheral anatomical region of the body and the application of manual therapy techniques based on the clinical interpretation of these E&A findings. The module also develops the students’ understanding of the theory which underpins these practical elements including knowledge of common injuries, injury processes and the general practise of Sports Therapy.

Sports Physiology

This module introduces students to the responses of tissues and organs to acute exercise and chronic exercise training. Students are also familiarised with a variety of field and laboratory-based tests of physical performance and physical fitness – both to assess components of fitness and work capacity as well as to screen for risk of sports injuries.

Sports Science Research Methods

This module allows students to use self-reflection to determine the best choice of project/dissertation for their chosen subject or career. This is linked to studying the processes that will maximise their employability.

Biomechanics of Human Movement

This module focuses on understanding the principles of human movement in terms of anatomy and biomechanics. In addition the module provides examples of the application of this knowledge to performance analysis, the development of sporting excellence, and injury prevention. A practical programme explores in more detail topics covered in the lectures.

Practical Delivery in Coaching and Teaching

This module explores the key pedagogical theories that inform sports teaching and coaching. The module includes a strong emphasis on experiential learning with students regularly engaging in practical coaching and teaching sessions.

Psychological Factors in Sport: Individual Differences

The ST5052 module, entitled Psychological Factors in Sport: Individual Differences, focuses on the key psychological theories within the sport psychology field; such as motivation and arousal. This module focuses on individual behaviour only.

Advanced Sports Therapy

This module allows students to integrate their knowledge gained throughout their degree and combines this with new skills and knowledge developed within their final year.
The module focuses on vertebral mobilisations, introduces the students to aspects of sports medicine and continually develops the student’s ability to critically reason, interpret and produce treatment plans based on case notes of specific sports/dance injuries.

Business Developments in Sport

This module is an introduction to the principles of business in the specific context of sport related ventures.

Sports Science and Therapy Dissertation

This module will enable students to reinforce the skills necessary to carry out a scientific programme requiring significant research. It will allow students to demonstrate the final development of their subject knowledge, skills and understanding through extended research based on laboratory, literature or field work, or meta-analysis of databases. This research will lead to the presentation of a detailed written report.

Work Placement and Electrotherapy

Students will gain experience in a variety of sports therapy arenas alongside providing the student with the theoretical knowledge and practical expertise to apply electrotherapeutic techniques safely and effectively.

Applied Principles of Sports Physiology

The module examines the response of the various physiological systems to exercise with an emphasis on training and other applied aspects. There is also a focus on sports nutrition, including ergogenic aids. Selected advanced topics of current interest are introduced.

Biomedical Implications of Exercise

This module analyses the relationships between exercise and a variety of disease states including cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic diseases. It focuses on aetiology, prevention, diagnosis and rehabilitation.

Principles of Sport Psychology and the Elite Athlete

This module explores contemporary theory in sport psychology and its relevance to the elite athletic performer. Approaching from an applied perspective, important concepts are considered in terms of their potential impact on an athlete’s psychological state.
