Course summary

In this course, we offer supervision in all areas of staff expertise in sports and exercise medicine. Our facilities include a wide range of ergometers and treadmills, stand alone and portable gas analysers, force plates, isokinetic dynamometers, a Vicon seven camera biomechanics system, electronic timing gates, full blood gas analysers, (including pulse and co-oximeters), near infrared (NIR) spectrophotometers and a variety of EMG systems. There are also modern molecular and genetic tools available in our state-of-the-art biological science laboratories. A research degree gives you the chance to investigate your chosen topic in real depth and reach a profound understanding. In communicating that understanding, through a thesis or other means, you have a rare opportunity to generate knowledge. A research degree allows you to develop new high-level skills, enhance your professional development and build new networks. It can open doors to many careers.

Our graduates go on to a range of careers. Some work in biomedical laboratories and in the biotechnology industry, both in research and development, and in sales. Other careers include work with governmental and non-governmental environmental agencies and organisations, or teaching in schools and colleges.
