A 2:2 in an undergraduate degree, preferably in Sport Science or a related field.
Additional requirement information
Experience in the strength and conditioning field amounting to at least ten hours per week is also required. This can be either paid or voluntary work.
Some flexibility in requirements is possible for those achieving lower degree classifications where they can demonstrate substantial industry experience and that their current commitment to study has progressed from the time of their first degree.
There's also a non-degree entrance pathway for those meeting one of two entry requirements:
- At least five years of experience working in sport in roles related to physical preparation of athletes.
- Full-time employment and at least five years of experience in a role relating to the physical preparation of military personnel.
Suitability for non-degree entrance is assessed through the completion of two entrance essays that should be completed and submitted along with your application. Details of the entrance essays can be downloaded here.
If you're offered a place on the non-degree entrant's pathway, you'll be restricted to two modules in your first year (meaning that the quickest you can complete the degree is in three years). In addition, you will study a non-credit bearing study skills module designed to help you quickly upskill in the areas necessary for Master's level study.
