Course Summary

Summary

Our programme equips you for a career in sport, exercise and clinical biomechanics. You will gain in-depth knowledge into how theoretical biomechanics can be applied to the understanding and development of movement for sport, exercise and clinical applications.

Our MSc in Biomechanics will enable you to support the physical development and health of sportspeople engaged in intensive training and exercise. This programme critically examines the theoretical basis of methods of assessment and the practical application of data within biomechanics. It offers you a means of studying biomechanics from a discipline-specific standpoint.

You will be taught by staff who are committed to pursue excellence in the field of sport, exercise and health sciences and have achieved a high level of expertise within their profession.

The Sport and Exercise Research Centre houses one of the best sport science laboratory facilities in London. You will have access to our biomechanics laboratory and physiology laboratory during your study here.

You will be able to collaborate with our members of the Sport and Exercise Science Research Centre engaged in range of multidisciplinary research themes including: Neuromusculoskeletal Function through the Ages; Extreme Environments; Amputee Mobility; Performance and Well-Being; and Exercise Adherence and Health. Students can also exit with PGDip award.

Career options

Graduates are equipped with the necessary skills to work as sports and exercise physiologists, sports coaches and therapists in the health sector at sports clubs, sporting associations, governing bodies and other related agencies.

Modules

Human gait is a fundamental movement that has been extensively researched from a biomechanical perspective. Much of the literature is highly specialised and an advanced in-depth analysis is appropriate at Masters Level study. This module aims to study the biomechanics of gait through sport, exercise, research and clinical methods. This module is highly practical with extensive use of real 3D gait data. The emphasis is on interpreting the information and understanding the processes by which it was obtained/derived. The topics covered in this module are directly used in routine clinical analysis and research laboratories.
