The Course

Our MSc Sports Therapy aims to prepare students to apply sports science knowledge and principles to the assessment and treatment of injuries within a sporting context. The programme has been developed in collaboration with The Society of Sports Therapists, an accrediting regulatory body for Sports Therapy programmes.

The course is designed to develop skills in pitch side first aid and trauma management, clinical injury assessment and competency in planning and implementing appropriate treatment and rehabilitation programmes for a range of sports injuries. The programme is based around core sports therapy modules.

As a student you have the opportunity to develop the skills to utilise sports and exercise principles to optimise performance. You have the chance to learn to provide immediate care of injuries and the capability of providing basic life support in a recreational, training and competitive environment. In addition, you can develop the skills to research and apply research findings to sports therapy practice.

How You Study

Students have the chance to learn through a variety of teaching and learning methods, including lectures, seminars, web-based resources and research-engaged teaching. Workshops and practical work will also help to develop the required skills.The assessment strategy adopted within the MSc Sports Therapy reflects the programme's emphasis on applied practice and the development of a range of communication skills. However, in all assessments students will be expected to demonstrate an appropriate level of understanding of the relevant theoretical issues. Assessment types are varied to meet the subject specific demands of each module and may include portfolio, reflective writing, practical, assignment, presentation or a dissertation.

Contact Hours and Independent Study

Students should expect approximately 12 hours of contact time per week during this programme. Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend at least two - three hours in independent study. For more detailed information please contact the programme leader.
