About

Within our multidisciplinary School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences, we offer research supervision in a broad range of areas related to the musculoskeletal speciality in the Musculoskeletal Practice programme at the University of Essex.

Overview

As a research student at the Musculoskeletal Practice programme of the University of Essex, you’ll work at the heart of our internationally acknowledged and well-connected research community. Our School offers an environment with an excellent reputation for research and teaching. A unique feature is that many of our staff work with local National Health Service (NHS) Trusts and other local health agencies, which enhances our grasp of the contemporary links between academic research, the major issues of the day and practice.

Our facilities include a wide range of ergometers and treadmills, force plates, isokinetic dynamometers, a Vicon motion capture system, electronic timing gates, and a variety of EMG systems. Equipment includes ultrasound systems that enable high quality musculoskeletal imaging.

Specialist facilities

Our School is housed within the Essex Sport Arena. This state-of-the-art development brings together education, rehabilitation, exercise and research, with facilities including a sports hall the size of three basketball courts, dedicated labs for physiotherapy and sports therapy training and a sports therapy clinic. Key to the success of all research and teaching within a university is sufficient resources. Our School is well equipped, centrally resourced by technical staff who provide a service to all our staff and students.

Our successful Human Performance Unit (HPU) provides educational and coaching services, health-related exercise programmes and athlete testing, as well as unique opportunities for you to further your studies and research in these areas.

We have a study room for our postgraduate research students. This has been designed in collaboration with our postgraduates, and allows our PhD students to have office space. This provides a focal point for our postgraduates, facilitating good communication and a strong sense of community.

Your future

Following completion of our course, our students’ career development opportunities are enhanced considerably. Some choose to retain a clinical focus and integrate their research skills into the professional roles, others decide to follow careers that are research based contributing to health care policy, efficiency and delivery.
