Course summary

Sports therapists work with everyone from elite athletes recovering from injury to older people keeping active through exercise. At York St John University our approach to sport prioritises the health of an athlete over their performance. You will develop as a responsible, skilled practitioner informed by our commitment to putting health and wellbeing first.An important focus of the course is understanding when an athlete is ready to return to play after an injury - an issue which is hotly debated by players, coaches, medical professionals and the media. Taught by staff who have both professional and research experience, you will be engaging with ideas and debates at the cutting-edge of Sport & Exercise Therapy.A lot of our research explores the social and mental impact injuries can have on athletes, and the links between the physiological and psychological aspects of injury. Through a combination of academic study and practical investigation you will learn to prevent, treat and rehabilitate soft tissue injuries, as well as building the ethical and social awareness needed to work in this field.We work with an extensive network of sports clubs and organisations, giving you the opportunity to gain work experience and carry out research in real-world sport settings. Many local and university sports teams use our Nestlé Rowntree Park Sports Campus. This site, which includes 3G and grass pitches, a sports barn, teaching and social spaces, human performance laboratories and our new sport and exercise therapy suite is a great place to learn and work.Throughout the course your learning, both practical and theoretical, will be highly relevant to the world of work. You will leave us ready for a career in sports therapy, sports massage or one of many other roles across the sport and health industries.This course is also available with a foundation Year (UCAS course code: C7C3)
