The scientific knowledge gained from this practical programme means you’ll be equipped to work with a wide range of populations, including athletes, young people,older people, and those suffering from, or at risk of developing, a number of disease states.

Teaching is reinforced by research, and there’s a strong emphasis on the links with industry. This includes opportunities for placements and internships. Practical sessions will be delivered in bespoke physiology and biomechanics laboratories.

You’ll also have access to our Human Performance Laboratory, with running, rowing, fitness testing and weights machines. There are numerous opportunities to meet the professional sportsmen and sportswomen who draw on the expertise of our lecturing staff within this facility.
