Robert Gordon University
This full time course is aimed at those whose role is to scientifically analyse musculoskeletal mechanical function (and dysfunction) through fundamental and advanced concepts of motion analysis.
2.1 Honours degree (or international equivalent) in a related discipline e.g. a sport or health related subject or mechanical engineering.
