The only Masters in the UK to focus on the impact of ageing on the musculoskeletal system this course is taught in a National Centre of Excellence - the MRC-ARUK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research.
Healthy ageing research is a major topic and research strength at the University of Birmingham. In 2013 the University was awarded the MRC-ARUK Centre of excellence in Musculoskeletal Ageing Research (CMAR), ensuring this course is delivered by world leading researchers and practitioners.
The teaching and research is truly multidisciplinary, as CMAR combines the skills of researchers in the college of Medical and Dental Sciences with exercise scientists and physiotherapists in the School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation sciences.
This course is unique as students will have the opportunity to carry out research in projects delivered jointly by Birmingham and the University of Nottingham, who are partners in CMAR.
