Aim and content
The aim of the course is to provide PhD students with more in depth knowledge about research on how social scientific inquiry has been used to study the link between sport, exercise and health (e.g. understanding rehabilitation programmes, new public health policy, the link between exercise and medicine, and considering the role for physical activity and exercise in healthcare). Furthermore, participants will participate in a number of workshops, which include information on how to prepare manuscripts for publication, what editors are looking for in the manuscript submission process and a ‘Young Researcher’ Forum. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with international students and experts. The course also provides a space to exchange ideas and knowledge about research methods related to the course topic. The course will enable communication, networking and cooperation among the students and the experts.
