Our programme equips you for a career in sport, exercise and clinical biomechanics. You will gain in-depth knowledge into how theoretical biomechanics can be applied to the understanding and development of movement for sport, exercise and clinical applications.
Our MSc in Biomechanics will enable you to support the physical development and health of sports people engaged in intensive training and exercise. This programme critically examines the theoretical basis of methods of assessment and the practical application of data within biomechanics. It offers you a means of studying biomechanics from a discipline-specific standpoint.
You will be taught by staff who are committed to pursue excellence in the field of sport, exercise and health sciences and have achieved a high level of expertise within their profession.
The Sport and Exercise Research Centre houses one of the best sport science laboratory facilities in London. You will have access to our biomechanics laboratory and physiology laboratory during your study here.
You will be able to collaborate with our members of the Sport and Exercise Science Research Centre engaged in range of multidisciplinary research themes including: Neuromusculoskeletal Function through the Ages; Extreme Environments; Amputee Mobility; Performance and Well-Being; and Exercise Adherence and Health.
Roehampton has over twenty-five years' experience of teaching Sport Science and has run Masters level Sport Science programmes since 1997. Over this time, we have constantly embraced changes in the profession and utilised student feedback to ensure that our programmes are relevant, inspiring and provided to the high standards.
You will study modules that provide both the theory and hands-on application in areas such as biomechanical assessment/support techniques, neuromuscular function, and biomechanics of gait. The teaching in these modules is both in-depth and highly practical, with extensive use of laboratory facilities such as Vicon 3D motion capture system, 2D video analysis, Kistler force plates, isokinetic dynamometers, ultrasound scanners, electromyography, and neuromuscular electrical stimulator.
You will also have the opportunity to gain two weeks work placement in gait laboratories of Guys and St Thomas’s Hospital and Queen Mary’s Hospital. Through this placement our previous graduates have developed their clinical gait analysis skills and have enhanced their employability within the field of Biomechanics.
In your research dissertation, you will have the opportunity to perform focused research in a project to be developed with our staff member with the view for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
