Unraveling the secrets of human movement

How do toddlers learn to walk? How can augmented reality help patients with Parkinson’s Disease? How do top athletes get maximum performance out of their muscles? What’s the best training to improve stability and prevent falls among elderly people?

This two-year multidisciplinary Research Master's programme integrates fundamental scientific research with relevant questions from clinical and sports practice. You’ll cover topics ranging from molecular biology to systems neuroscience, and from biomechanics to motor behaviour.

The programme has close ties with the Amsterdam Movement Sciences (AMS) institute, which contributes to the strong research focus and relevance of the course content.

Discover your Human Movement Sciences Research Master’s programme

This Research Master's is a selective programme, with up to 30 highly motivated students per year. That means you’ll benefit from interactive lectures and small-scale teaching sessions.

The first year prepares you for scientific research. It also allows you to choose your own combination of courses to tailor your programme. Your second year is devoted to conducting a research project of your choice. Throughout the programme, you’ll gain hands-on experience across the full empirical scientific research cycle.
