Taught at one of the largest providers of sport in UK higher education – this course will allow you to apply the principles of sport and exercise biomechanics to support and enhance your understanding of human performance and injury.

As part of your course you’ll:

  • Examine the function and movement of the human body through laboratory data collection – employing cutting-edge technology such as 3D motion analysis, multicomponent dynamometry and neuromuscular imaging
  • Critically assess a broad range of theories, methodologies and research findings
  • Learn how to apply theories, strategies and methodologies in appropriate ways
  • Develop empirical rigour in identifying solutions to complex problems

Your learning will be inspired by the very latest insights, and you’ll be supported by tutors who are engaged in research and scientific support within the areas of neuromuscular assessment and the optimisation of athletic performance. 

Your teaching team have provided support and coaching interventions for Olympic athletes. Under their guidance, you’ll be able to put your learning into practice working with university sports teams, professional sports clubs and elite performers.
