We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Physiology explore a wide range of bodily functions and the effects of external influences on the various biological systems. These include respiration, circulation, digestion, excretion, reproduction, and neuroscience.
Related subjects include Sport & Exercise Physiology, Applied Physiology and Medical Physiology. Entry requirements for these courses usually involve an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Sports Science, Pharmacology or Biology.
If you study a Masters in Physiology, you’ll be able to apply your expertise in a range of contexts across several sectors and industries.
For example, you may examine how extreme weather conditions or temperatures affect the human body. This could include analysing how frostbite damages the cells and tissues of the body, or how the respiratory system copes in extreme heat. This sort of expertise is essential for the planning and delivery of services such as fire and rescue, as well as clinical and medical practice.
Alternatively, you might examine how the body deals with exercise and conditioning, using this knowledge in a sporting or therapeutic context to help people who want to improve their cardiovascular or muscular health for rehabilitation purposes.
Other careers include roles in the consumer market such as the design of assistive and wearable technology, as well as humanitarian assistance in the form of charity work, or regulation and policy-making for public services on behalf of government bodies.
