The MSc Sport and Exercise Biomechanics provides you with an opportunity to study at a postgraduate level to fulfil the initial requirements for BASES accreditation, to develop your knowledge of the sport and exercise sciences, and to increase your skills in applying such knowledge in both sporting and exercise populations Within the past decade there has been a marked growth in the career opportunities available for sport and exercise biomechanists (e.g. teaching in further and higher education, World Class Support programmes). Coupled with this growth, there has also been an increased need for appropriately qualified and accredited individuals to fill such positions. The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) has developed procedures for the accreditation of suitably experienced individuals that stipulate the possession of a relevant form of postgraduate qualification.
Modules currently available are: Applied Techniques in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics Biomechanical Instrumentation and Measurement Ergonomics in Sport and Exercise The Research Methods and Statistics 1 The Research Methods and Statistics 2 The Supervised Experience Portfolio Tissue Mechanics and Assistive Devices Independent Project
Each module is assessed by a 4,000-word assignment. MSc includes a dissertation of 12,000 words or a supervised experience portfolio.
Candidates should normally have a good honours degree (2:1) in a related area (eg Sport and (or) Exercise Science, Sports Studies, Human Movement Science, Coaching Science, Health Science) with a high proportion of study related to Psychology and Research Methods.
