What will I learn?

Course Details

Applying the principles of sport and exercise biomechanics to support and enhance your understanding of human performance and injury is at the heart of this course. You will have the opportunity to 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. Your learning will be inspired by the very latest insights, and you will be supported by tutors who are engaged in research and scientific support within the areas of neuromuscular assessment and the optimisation of athletic performance. Their research was graded "internationally excellent" and "world leading" in the Research Excellence Framework 2014. They have provided support and coaching interventions for Olympic athletes. Under their guidance, you will be able to put your learning into practice working with University sports teams, professional sports clubs and elite performers.
