The degree has been approved by the Spanish LaLiga football league.
Besides learning through lectures and reading, the program also teaches students a lot by giving them opportunities to learn by doing. Students visit many top sport teams, get to know how the organization works and how events are managed. Also, during the academic year students travel to the United Arab Emirates, where they visit Ferraru City, Qatar Aspire Academy, Dubai Sport World and Dubai Sport City. It’s worth mentioning that students of this program have rated it 4.61 / 5 points on a satisfaction questionnaire.
Masters in High Performance Sport: Strength and Conditioning. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the different areas of sports performance and conditioning and acquire the necessary training for proper performance in their professional and/or research careers. The constant evolution and growing interest in physical activity and sports science makes this area of multidisciplinary expertise a highly sought after subject of professional interest.
This highly respected degree is approved by the Spanish LaLiga football league and the American National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). These studies will give students a good theoretical and practical background for working as well as doing independent research in the sport sciences field. During their studies, students will have an opportunity to attain either an NSCA personal trainer license (CPT) or a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist license.
