Course summary

Overview

Our Human & Applied Physiology MSc will give you an advanced theoretical and practical understanding of the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems, including the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole-body physiology. This innovative course is delivered by internationally renowned experts and will put you at the cutting edge in your understanding of the field.

Course detail

The course will give you a theoretical and practical basis for explaining the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems at rest and during exercise. You will explore the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology, including in relation to aerospace and military medicine. You will study topics from both systemic and cellular/molecular perspectives in order to gain an understanding of the breadth of investigative approaches employed in human physiology research. You will also focus on practical work, learning how to plan and run experiments using human subjects. Ultimately, we aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills to enhance your understanding and expertise in human physiology in its broadest sense and build a career in a related field.

Teaching and assessment

Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written examinations which evaluate both the theoretical and practical components of the course. Forms of assessment may typically include oral presentations, poster presentations and written reports and essays. We supplement the taught programme with online formative assessment for learning. Coursework contributes approximately 50% and examinations approximately 50% to your final mark.

Career prospects

Our graduates go on to careers in academic teaching and research, medicine, clinical physiology, health services, sports science support, and research posts in industry or in Ministry of Defence research establishments.
