From the latest developments in sports training to new approaches to rehabilitation, this Human Movement Sciences - Biophysics in Sport MSc programme offered at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam provides state of the art insights into the ways in which human performance can be enhanced.


From biomechanics to psychology. From exercise physiology to neurorehabilitation. And from muscle function to motor development.

The one-year Human Movement Sciences - Biophysics in Sport MSc programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam provides ample possibilities for customization of your personal programme, so that you can create a profile that fits your interests. 

Human movement is a key issue for today’s society. It’s the basis of everything we do. We need to move to survive, to achieve and to enjoy life. Freedom of movement in all its aspects determines quality of life – from cell to organ and from organ to the entire body.

But movement cannot always be taken for granted, as is the case with patients whose functional movement is limited due to diseases and/or conditions such as osteoarthritis, cerebral palsy, stroke or a trauma. But also among healthy individuals (especially children, the elderly, athletes and working people), there is often a need to optimise movement in order to maintain or improve the range of movements or to prevent injury.

Career Opportunities

  • The degree qualifies you as a scientist with career opportunities in applied research or in vocational education.
  • But also as embedded scientist or exercise physiologist. 

Promotion alumni sessions Master’s day

During the Master’s day, you can also meet our (international) alumni during several workshops. In these sessions they will tell you more about career opportunities after finishing your Master’s degree.
