About this course

You’ll study the human anatomy and physiology, looking at the mechanics of musculoskeletal injury. We’ll teach the therapeutic methods used to promote healing and a return to activity and sport, while helping you to develop a critical understanding of theoretical and practically relevant issues for sports therapy and rehabilitation.

As an applied and vocational degree, there’s a strong focus on giving you opportunities to apply your skills and knowledge to real-world situations and scenarios. You’ll complete two professional work placements as part of your degree, which give you the chance to gain valuable professional experience in a sports injury treatment setting.

All this means that by the time you graduate, you’ll have a critical understanding of the theoretical knowledge required by professionals working in sports therapy and rehabilitation.

Upon completion of this course, students will be recognised for membership by the Society of Sports Therapists (subject to approval).

Why study with us?
