The KU Leuven, Belgium, Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic, and a number of associate partner institutions are inviting application for a Master degree in Adapted Physical Activity.


The International Master of Adapted Physical Activity (IMAPA) is a 2 year Master and combines the expertise of more than 20 universities and organisations throughout the world.


The programme offers students state-of-the-art research and teaching methodology in adapted physical activity (APA) and the social, pedagogical, and technical aspects of physical activity adapted to the needs of persons with a disability.


IMAPA is a flexible programme, allowing students to design the content of their curriculum depending on the competences they wish to acquire. Students can follow the entire programme as KU Leuven students, or fit a number of selected courses within their home university programme, while remaining registered at their home university.


IMAPA graduates will have the competences to work with persons with an impairment in career domains such as education, coaching, personal training, physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine or other health care professions. Programme graduates can also pursue a research career through the knowledge and expertise acquired in adapted physical activity and a kinesiology related scientific discipline.
