Advanced Contemporary Issues in Disability Sport, Coaching and Special Education Needs and Disability in Physical Education

This module allows students to explore the contested conceptualisation of disability in a sporting context. A multi-disciplinary approach (cultural/social/historical) is encouraged so that you can develop your awareness of how adapted sport can be addressed from a range of theoretical perspectives.

Module tutors will aim to facilitate independent learning to help you cultivate a self-directed approach to a critical analysis of contemporary issues in adapted sport from a coaching and teaching perspective.

Leading People in Sport

This module explores organisational culture, multidisciplinary team working and how this relates to the leadership of people in sport. The learning focus covers a wide range of disciplines in sport including coaching, management, performance analysis, sport science and adapted physical education.

This module also explores wider factors influencing leadership in sport from the perspective of micro-politics and sociocultural conceptions of power. Subsequently, theoretical models of leadership will be reviewed including consideration of the extent to which the research underpinning various approaches is credible and informative.

Applied Pedagogy and Practice in Adapted Physical Activity

Adapted sport represents one of the most pertinent and topical issues in contemporary sports coaching and teaching. This module offers the opportunity to contextualise theoretical concepts of adapted sport in applied practice.

You will be exploring best practice examples of inclusive delivery from a range of adapted sport providers; to provoke critical thinking, preparation and planning through a range of scenarios.

Professional Placement

This module makes use of preparatory tasks and activities (self-assessment of skills; peer critique; career planning) and a one-day seminar which is focused on professional conduct and planning of the work placement.

You will complete a 100-hour work placement in a sport setting appropriate to Adapted Sport MSc. Tutorials are utilised throughout the placement to monitor your progress and learning.

Sports Research Project

This module offers you the chance to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of a current issue or topic within Adapted Sport.

Alongside a specialist tutor, you will design and implement a Masters level research project. This will be supported by appropriate justification, methods, analysis and interpretation of data obtained during the study. Your research findings and conclusions will be discussed in light of relevant contemporary research.


Upon successful completion of the Masters Programme, there may be opportunities for students to gain first employment, promotion within their own organisation, gain international employment or move to a senior management position in other organisations.

The Masters also provides a platform to other research/higher degrees in sport and promotion in other professional organisations.

The completion of the Masters may also provide students with the ability to enhance their current working practices.

Completion of this Masters degree also enables interested students to pursue higher level research qualifications.
