Two-year Research Master's program that integrates fundamental scientific research with relevant questions from clinical and sports practice. You will be trained for a career in scientific research.

This multidisciplinary Research Master's program, stretches from molecular biology to cognitive neuroscience and human motor behaviour. The programme prepares students for a career in scientific research in the domains of sport, health, or more basic fundamental aspects of human movement.

The first year is dedicated to preparation for scientific research, providing a profound background in the domains of sport, rehabilitation, and regenerative medicine. In addition, you are trained in state-of-the-art research methods and advanced statistics. You can fine-tune your own profile, with a focus on sport, health, or more basic fundamental aspects of human movement. The second year is reserved for a research internship, to gain hands-on experience in all aspects of scientific research. The department offers ample possibilities for spending (part of the) internship abroad.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be awarded an internationally recognized Master of Science degree (MSc) and you are all set to pursue a scientific career, typically starting with a PhD position. However, you will also be well equipped for other research-related positions.

Na de studie

Unsplashed background img 2
After completing the Research Master's, you will be all set to pursue a scientific career, typically starting with a PhD position. Indeed, about 80% of our alumni have taken up research positions. Of course, you will also be well equipped for other research-related positions, or a career as embedded scientist or knowledge broker in the fields of sports or health.
Students who decide not to embark on a scientific career after graduating, have good career prospects as well. For instance in ICT, movement-related technology, teaching in higher education, or research-related coordination and management.

If you are considering a future academic position, you might want to enhance your teaching skills as well. Each year, the department of Human Movement Sciences offers a limited number of students the opportunity to acquire an accreditation for teaching in Higher Education. This additional programme amounts to 24 EC that can be partially incorporated into your Research Master's programme.
