To equip graduate students in biomedical/life science and sport science with value added knowledge and skills that will enhance their understanding and expertise in human physiology in its broadest sense. For careers in academic research/teaching, medicine, physiotherapy, health services, sport science support, research posts in industry and Ministry of Defence research establishments.
The programme is run by the Centre of Human & Aerospace Physiological Sciences/ Department of Physiology. The MSc provides a theoretical and practical basis for explaining the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems at rest and during exercise. This extends to the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology. Programme topics are studied from both systemic and cellular/molecular perspectives in order that students have a good understanding of the breadth of investigative approaches employed in human physiology research.
