Course content

Interest in sport and exercise in the UK has increased significantly, and those working in the industry require a diverse set of skills. This course will enable you to apply your knowledge of science and medicine to help athletes recover from injury and reach their physical peak and also aid the general population in maintaining healthy lifestyles.

You will gain practical expertise that will allow you to assess, treat and support individuals from a variety of sporting disciplines. By understanding the process of an injury audit to identify risk factors, you will learn how to implement an evidence-based treatment plan that minimises the chance of re-injury.

You will develop a comprehensive knowledge of pathophysiology, biomechanics and sports-specific clinical reasoning, allowing you to accurately evaluate and treat injuries. You will study rehabilitation strategies and return-to-play assessments, and you will explore the emergent field of prehabilitation, which aims to prevent injuries before they occur. 

Course Benefits

You'll gain practical skills that you can apply straight away, whether you work or volunteer in sports, or are looking for your first job in the field. Our Sports Volunteer Programme has excellent links with professional sporting clubs and fitness initiatives, and you'll have the chance to maximise your learning by taking up additional experience opportunities offered through this.

You'll be taught by staff who are practising sports and exercise therapists with a huge amount of expertise and professional links.
