Biomechanics is the study of the mechanical functioning of the biological system. This course applies biomechanical knowledge in both a sporting and clinical context. You will study under the guidance of world-leaders in biomechanics, bringing your own knowledge into our state-of-the-art facilities. We welcome applications from those interested in the movement and mechanism of the human body and dedicated to the application and advancement of this field of study.

The curriculum is research-led with a number of core modules being directly informed by the current research activity of staff. Extensive training is provided in laboratory-based skills and in the interpretation of biomechanical findings and there is comprehensive coverage of contemporary issues in biomechanics. The programme opens up a world of scientific innovation, research and the application of clinical treatments that can achieve functional consequences for the human body in sports performance contexts.
