About the course

Our well-established Sport Biomechanics master's 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, it 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 and analysis techniques and equipment, through to the latest theoretical considerations and research problems.

Student Profiles


Loughborough is world renowned for its sports-related degrees and research, so it was a no-brainer to stay and do a master's in Sport Biomechanics.

The internship that was offered alongside my degree allows me to work amongst world-class athletes and coaches, which is an opportunity I do not think you would get at other universities. I also chose to study my MSc at Loughborough as I did my undergraduate degree here and just really liked the community and general vibe you get around the University, especially revolving around sports.


The overlap between sports as an applied science and the natural sciences of physics and mathematics is very intriguing and gives the study of Sports Biomechanics the potential to solve many of the problems we face in practice.

I have always enjoyed advancing my learning and I felt that continuing my studies would put me in a good position to both share and foster knowledge, as well as contribute to the overall advancement of the field through research.

I chose to study at Loughborough due to its renowned reputation for sports science and sports research, and particularly the academic excellence of the Sports Biomechanics MSc programme.
