Sport and Clinical Biomechanics at Liverpool John Moores University course applies biomechanical knowledge in both a sporting and clinical context. You will study under the guidance of world-leaders in biomechanics, bringing your own knowledge into our state-of-the-art facilities. We welcome applications from those interested in the movement and mechanism of the human body and dedicated to the application and advancement of this field of study.
The curriculum is research-led with a number of core modules being directly informed by the current research activity of staff. Extensive training is provided in laboratory-based skills and in the interpretation of biomechanical findings and there is comprehensive coverage of contemporary issues in biomechanics. The programme opens up a world of scientific innovation, research and the application of clinical treatments that can achieve functional consequences for the human body in sports performance contexts.
The course is underpinned by a number of learning outcomes designed to align with the Department of Health Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF).
Many careers will be available to you on graduation. You may go on to work as a Biomechanist in research or a health-related applied setting. Practicing physiotherapists will be able to enhance service provision by applying their biomechanical knowledge and skills and others will be able to use their expertise as applied practitioners. You could pursue a career in education, choosing to teach or lecture in schools, colleges and universities or continue your studies with a Doctoral research programme.
