At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential. We have a strong tradition of supporting student employability, with relevant skills embedded in the curriculum.
The key themes of our strategy are student confidence, professionalism and social responsibility. To help students achieve their potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and directed activities. This approach ensures that students fully engage in shaping their own learning, developing their critical thinking and reflective skills so that they can identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape their own development. Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here.
A range of assessment methods are used throughout the course, giving students the opportunity to draw on their professional experience as well as their academic learning. These include formal written essays, case study reports, physical activity interventions, research proposal, research critique, cost-benefit evaluations, reflective portfolio, online seminars and a major research project (dissertation).
Assessment titles are written to enable students to focus on their areas of specific work interest.
Additional support in the form of online tutorials, and one-to-one support is provided to ensure all students, from all backgrounds, are able to develop the skills needed to successfully complete assessments at Masters level.
A good honours degree in a related subject such as Exercise & Sports Science, Public Health, Health Psychology
Candidates with degrees in non-related subjects will also be considered if they hold employment experience or can demonstrate a committed interest in Health and Wellbeing, as will professionals without a degree.
Students will be expected to complete an application form, a letter of intent, and will be asked to conduct either a telephone interview, where appropriate an interview in person, and if needed, complete a pre-course assessment task where formal academic entry requirements are not met.
