Course Summary

The MSc Clinical Biomechanics has been developed for health professionals who wish to extend their understanding of the clinical application of mechanical principles. Considerable flexibility in the way the award is structured will allow you to tailor learning to your specific area of practice.

Designed by research-active clinical professionals, the course bridges the gap between clinical practice and biomechanical principles, for a rigorous and focused understanding of the subject.

Applying mechanical principles to the management of pathology, human movement and gait dysfunction, the course is primarily focused on musculoskeletal practitioners – such as physiotherapists, orthotists, chiropractors and podiatrists – who provide biomechanical-based interventions in their clinical practice.

In addition to being able to study to Certificate, Diploma or MSc level, you can choose to complete individual modules. This route not only provides an ideal taster to the MSc course, but can also be an effective way of completing CPD.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Clinical Biomechanics.

Assessment

All modules are assessed by portfolio and often take the form of task-based reflections of clinical practice. The range of tasks you can choose to include is purposefully non-specific to allow for a broad range of interests, and to enable you to develop work that is relevant to your clinical practice.

Your dissertation will be self-directed and must take the form of a research project that is relevant to your needs. We understand that students typically wish to complete their dissertation in a particular healthcare setting. We therefore always aim to facilitate projects around the country.

Entry requirements

You’ll normally need to be an HCPC-registered allied health professional. You can also be an associate of a medical or an allied health professional (such as a chiropractor, a sports therapist or a biomechanist) who is involved in the clinical management of musculoskeletal conditions. When considering the general requirements below, the degree or other acceptable qualification must be in a healthcare or biomechanical field involving the treatment of patients. Healthcare professionals need to hold any necessary post-qualification registration (e.g. HCPC Registration) deemed a requirement for working with patients. You’ll need: An Honours degree from a UK University, or any other qualification deemed to be equivalent to a UK Honours degree. Or If you don’t have an Honours degree you may still be admitted if you have significant appropriate experience and can provide substantial evidence of your ability to undertake the course successfully and benefit from it. We recommend that you bring a professional portfolio indicating your achievements to interview.
