The COMPULSORY MODULE is based on theory lessons and practical sessions. Its main aim is to reach a suitable use of the methodology and specific techniques of physiological research, regarding to the laboratory tools as well as the use of experimental data and image processing system technologies. On the other hand, it also aims to obtain a wide range of theoretical knowledge and innovative aspects used in cardiovascular physiology, oxidative stress and rare diseases, which create a range of possibilities training the students in order to develop their researcher work.

Due to the existence of many specific Physiology fields, the OPTATIVE MODULE is based on the training of the student in physiology research with four specific subjects about relevant issues. Three of the four subjects are swapped each two school years due to their scientific interest on the one hand and on the other hand due to the difficulty of relying on the collaboration of specialists every year. In any case, regardless of the subjects the student will take in this module, he or she can complement the achieved training in the compulsory module so he or she can carry out a job in investigation fields.

In the FINAL PROJECT the student carries out a research work based on a original pilot study about one of the Physiology research areas included on the department of physiology research units; introduction, objectives, methods, results, debate, conclusions and bibliography and he or she defends the Final Project facing a tribunal. The student must demonstrate the acquired competences associated to the development of those aspects related to the research activity in some of the Physiology fields.

BRIDGING COURSES: The most suitable profile to obtain the maximum benefit from the studies to be carried out is that of students whose scientific and health training allows them to acquire the knowledge that is taught in the master's degree of physiology, both human and physical exercise. 

Therefore, the recommended access routes correspond to students who come from Degrees as Medicine, Pharmacy, Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Physics, Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, Nutrition and Dietetics, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, or Veterinary Medicine, as well as other equivalent Degrees.

For the entrance to the Master, the Academic Coordination Committee will indicate to the student the need or not to take the leveling subject Bridging courses. The Committee will study each case, but as a general rule, all students excepting the students from Degrees as Medicine, Pharmacy, Nutrition and Dietetics, Biology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Environmental Sciences have to take the Bridging Module.


FULL-TIME AND PART-TIME ENROLMENT: 60 ECTS credits allows the complete master’s realization in one academic course.

FULL-TIME ENROLMENT: Full-time students have to register for a minimum of 36 credits and a maximum of all 60 credits of the master's degree.

PART-TIME ENROLMENT: The regime of part-time dedication will be requested for justified causes, as could be for accredited labour activity, the practice of high level sport activities, special educational needs, family responsibilities or student representation responsibilities. They have to register for a minimum of 24 credits and maximum of 35. In these cases, it is advisable to enrol in the first year of the compulsory module (30 credits) and leave the optional (15 credits) and the TFM (15 credits) for the second year.
