Sport

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

When studying sport, students usually choose between focusing on the business and strategic elements of sports or the physiological aspects. Those studying the former typically have the potential to coach or manage professional sports organizations while the latter aid in physical training.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
