The Human Performance Centre is used by the School of Sport and Exercise Science and these specialist laboratories, feature modern equipment in order to undertake physiological and biomechanical assessments.
The labs are equipped for both the teaching of students, academic research, and also outside consultancy with businesses and elite athletes. The equipment used ranges from treadmills and ergometers, through to gas and lactate measuring equipment, motion detection, impact analysis, and an endless pool.
The labs are located in the same building as the university sports centre, where the School of Sport and Exercise Science is also based, and are available as learning environments for students on the Health and Exercise Science, Physical Education and Sport, Sport and Exercise Science, Sport Development and Coaching, Strength and Conditioning in Sport, Sport Science, and Sport Therapy courses.
Unlike some other universities, our students can use all of the facilities from the first year of their course.
What impressed me when I visited Lincoln’s Open Day was how applied the learning was and the opportunities for lab work, both in class time and independently. There didn’t appear to be the same opportunities when I visited other University Open Days

Our Human Performance Centre is well supported by four specialist technicians who actively assist within laboratory classes and support students who can book laboratory time for independent study.
Learning using the latest technology and accessing all the latest gadgetry in the labs is amazing and gives the course a hands-on element that can be applied to real world scenarios helps my understanding of many concepts.
