    Human & Applied Physiology enables students to gain a theoretical and practical understanding of the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems at rest and during exercise, including the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology. Leads to careers in teaching and research, medicine, physiotherapy, health services, physical education.

    KEY BENEFITS
    * The original and foremost programme in human and applied physiology in the UK.
    * Training in a wide variety of practical laboratory skills pertaining to human physiology.
    * A knowledge base of human physiology particularly relevant for careers in biomedical research and medicine.
    * Lectures from world leading experts in a variety of different fields.
    * Unique exposure of human physiology applied to aviation and military medicine only available at King's College London.
    * Located in the heart of London.

    PURPOSE
    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.

    DESCRIPTION
    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.
    There is a focus on a practical work and planning/running experiments using human subjects.

    STRUCTURE OVERVIEW
    Core programme content

    All taught components are required. Please see the module list.

    Indicative non-core content

    All taught components are required. Please see the module list.

    FORMAT AND ASSESSMENT
    Five taught modules comprising lectures, tutorials, and seminars and a significant practical component. There is also a research project which makes up 30 per cent of the MSc. Assessment is through unseen written exams (in January and May), written dissertations, poster presentations, practical write-ups and oral presentations.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
