Course summary

Our well-established Sport Biomechanics degree programme enables you to specialise in the physics of sport - the area of science concerned with the analysis of human movement. Through the measurement and simulation of movement, the degree facilitates a greater understanding of human performance in sporting and recreational activities. This understanding can then be used to improve performance and reduce injury risk. The programme contains cutting-edge content, ranging from experimental data collection, analysis techniques and equipment, through to the latest theoretical considerations and research problems. Throughout the programme you will benefit from access to a large designated teaching laboratory and use key pieces of biomechanics equipment, including Vicon motion analysis systems, force plates, wireless electromyography (EMG), and isokinetic dynamometers. Additionally, you will use the programming language MATLAB for data processing and analysis, as well as software for computer simulation and inertia modelling. The programme culminates in an original research project, allowing you to apply the knowledge and expertise you have gained from the taught modules to independently collect and analyse data to answer a research question.

Entry requirements

A 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent international qualification) in sport or biological sciences (with a substantial biomechanics/bioengineering component), or in engineering, maths, physical sciences, or related disciplines.

Additional fee information

The tuition fees shown are for new students commencing the first year of study in the specified year only. The fee stated is for a full-time student undertaking a master’s programme of 180 credits. Part-time students, or those taking a postgraduate certificate or a postgraduate diploma, should divide the published fee by 180 credits and then multiply by the number of credits they are taking to calculate their tuition fees. Fees are reviewed annually and are likely to increase to take into account inflationary pressures.
