Our well-established Sport Biomechanics degree programme 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, the degree 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, analysis techniques and equipment, through to the latest theoretical considerations and research problems.

Throughout the programme you will benefit from access to a large designated teaching laboratory and use key pieces of biomechanics equipment, including Vicon motion analysis systems, force plates, wireless electromyography (EMG), and isokinetic dynamometers. Additionally, you will use the programming language MATLAB for data processing and analysis, as well as software for computer simulation and inertia modelling.

The programme culminates in an original research project, allowing you to apply the knowledge and expertise you have gained from the taught modules to independently collect and analyse data to answer a research question.

There are various Bachelor’s degrees available depending on your chosen course, including:

  • Bachelor of Arts (BA)
  • Bachelor of Science (BSc)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (BEng)
  • Bachelor of Architecture (BArch)
  • Master’s in Science (MSci)
  • Master’s in Engineering (MEng)
  • Master’s in Chemistry (MChem)
  • Master’s in Planning (MPlan)


For more information on all our courses and the opportunities associated with them, visit our undergraduate study pages.

We offer a range of postgraduate qualifications at our Loughborough and London campuses, including taught master’s programmes and doctoral qualifications.

Taught programmes:

Our taught programmes include postgraduate certificates (PGCert) worth 120 credits, postgraduate diplomas (PGDip) worth 150 credits and 180 credit master’s degrees, such as MSc, MA and MBA qualifications where you will complete a final research or a work-based project.

Research programmes:

We offer a wide range of doctoral qualifications across our schools, departments and institutes. These include:

  • PhD
  • EngD
  • PhD by Practice
  • PhD in Creative Writing


A PhD or EngD is the highest academic qualification that you can achieve. Your research must make a significant, original contribution to new knowledge, building on your critical appreciation of existing knowledge of the subject.
