About the course

This Biomechanics Masters course develops your expertise in the analysis of the mechanics of human movement, as well as develop a range of practical and empirical skills that are transferable across industry, sport and health sectors. You will study the structure and function of an athlete's sport movements in order to minimise risk of injury and improve sport performance.

You'll learn a strong complement of applied and research skills, balanced with how to communicate key information to relevant sport industry partners. You'll gain greater understanding of the effects of forces on performance through modeling, simulation and measurement of athletic events.

The focus is on developing research expertise, with a project conducted over the entire year of study. The aim is to develop and submit

Student Profile(s)

Robin Thorpe

I completed my undergraduate degree at NTU and chose to stay to do my masters due to the knowledge and enthusiasm of the staff. The staff have a real passion for applied sport science and are at the forefront of research in football. The equipment and expertise allowed me to complete an applied football project investigating immune responses to football matches. The skills and knowledge this provided me with was
integral to my employment in my dream job at Manchester United.

"After looking around the university on an open day I was amazed by the quality of the equipment throughout the University on the Clifton campus.

"The BSc (Hons) Exercise, Nutrition and Health degree course allows students to understand up to date, relevant sports science data in a hands-on job related environment with the most up to date equipment. I liked the fact that each course module was different, keeping each subject interesting, but with elements that allowed learning to overlap.

"After finishing my undergraduate course I started looking for Masters Courses. I could not find a university with the same facilities and equipment that would help me achieve in the areas of sports science. Through my academic career I have developed the ability to apply scientific principles in the design, data collection and write up of nutrition/ physiology research projects.

"All of my lecturers over my four years at Nottingham Trent University helped me with my studies, from drop in sessions, labs and lectures. They also helped me to achieve one publication and funding from the European Hydration Institute to begin research on another.

"Nottingham is a busy city, which is easy to get to and cheap when living as a student and after student life. I am now working for Nottingham Trent University as a Laboratory Technician in the Centre for Effective Learning in Science. During my social time I am also continuing to research within the areas of sports science and nutrition with the help from fellow lecturers to add more published research to my CV."
