Project Title: Connecting Actively with Nature: Evaluation of an intervention programme to promote physical activity and health through nature - Masters by Research

Sport and Health Sciences, St Lukes Campus, Exeter

The University of Exeter’s department of Sport and Health Sciences is inviting applications for an MSc by Research studentship funded by Active Devon to commence on 26 September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.  For eligible students the studentship will cover Home tuition fees for 1 year full-time, or pro rata for part-time study.

Connecting Actively with Nature: Evaluation of an intervention to promote physical activity and health through nature.

This MSc by Research project will support evaluation of the Sport England funded Connecting Actively with Nature (CAN) programme. Led by Active Devon, CAN is designed to support adults over the age of 55, particularly those who are inactive or have a lower level of fitness, have long-term health conditions, or are isolated, to achieve the many health benefits of being physically active in the natural environment. The project will involve using both quantitative and qualitative research methods to understand how physical activity, natural connectedness, general health and mental wellbeing changes in CAN participants as a result of being involved in the CAN programme.

The successful student will have an interest in physical activity, health sciences, public health, or health promotion and may particularly suit those interested in pursuing a research career. The successful student will be supervised by Dr Richard Pulsford (Sport and Health Sciences), and Drs Lewis Elliot and Sarah Bell (European Centre for the Environment and Human Health), and will be based primarily at the University of Exeter St Lukes Campus. The supervision team will provide mentorship and training in relevant research and analytical methods to support the successful completion of the research objectives and a Masters by Research thesis. Further development opportunities may will also be available through the University of Exeter and our partners at Active Devon.

This award provides annual funding to cover Home tuition fees only. Students who pay international tuition fees are eligible to apply, but should note that the award will only provide payment for part of the international tuition fee.

International applicants need to be aware that you will have to cover the cost of your student visa, healthcare surcharge and other costs of moving to the UK to do a MbyRes.

The conditions for eligibility of home fees status are complex and you will need to seek advice if you have moved to or from the UK (or Republic of Ireland) within the past 3 years or have applied for settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme.
