    The School of Sport and Education is a research-friendly environment with research activity focused within two fields of enquiry - sport sciences and education. It has a lively mix of new researchers working alongside more experienced colleagues, many of whom are from relevant professional backgrounds within the domains of sport sciences and education.

    The school has research students registered on PhD and MPhil programmes, as well as EdD degrees. Students are attached to, and undertake research closely allied to research themes within the School´s two subject areas.
