Frequently Asked Questions

High performance sports are related to the world of training at the highest level. They involve being able to ensure that an athlete can give their best possible performance in competitions at the highest level. Not everyone is ready for high performance, as it requires a very specific commitment and strategy. It is not easy to conduct a comprehensive analysis and design a plan aimed at achieving the best possible level of performance, which means that this is a very specialised area requiring the intervention of trained professionals.

All the specific, basic principles of sports training, including the physical, nutritional and psychological as well as technological support. Knowledge not only of the tangible aspects of training, but also of control, quantification and management, as well as the development of support technologies, should be dealt with in a master’s degree with these characteristics.

Specialisation in the sector is fundamental. It is essential to have the necessary knowledge and resources to be able to deal with the demanding world of high performance. This knowledge is provided by specific courses in high performance sports, where leading professionals in the sector train students in specific and fundamental skills.

The Universidad Europea de Madrid offers postgraduate programmes linked to High performance sports (both campus based and online) which offers great possibilities for students, as it adapts to the capabilities and needs of each individual student.
