Our research vision is to create, disseminate and curate world-leading knowledge in Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences. Our research addresses four main themes: human performance science, physical activity for health, physical education and sport.

Our research ranking, collaboration and mission

We have 35 members of staff who are active researchers. The REF 2021 results for both education and sport-related research place us as Scotland’s top-ranked institution for research breadth and quality. We are ranked 3rd in the UK in terms of the breadth and quality of our research in education and nearly 90 per cent of our sport-related research activity is classified as ‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ (Times Higher Education).

We engage in division-crossing, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues across the School and University, and in other institutions within Scotland and internationally. For example, we held a series of workshops which involved monitoring young racing drivers, from around the world, provided them with invaluable practical experience.

Our research mission is to advance, explore and enable research in Sport, Physical Education and Health Science. Find out more about our research through the links below to our research centres, groups and networks sites.
