Course summary

Course Overview

This Master's degree in Sport Rehabilitation aims to develop highly competent, industry ready Sport Rehabilitation practitioners with a critical awareness of the field. This aim is achieved by developing independent, reflective students with an understanding of professional issues, clinical reasoning and evidence based practice, whilst simultaneously equipping them with the wide spectrum of practical skills essential to Sport Rehabilitation. The course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT) and students who complete the accredited MSc programme will be eligible to apply for registration with BASRaT. BASRaT accreditation will only apply to the MSc award and not the PGDip or PGCert.

The course has a strong focus on practical skills and competences and all students must complete a minimum of 400 hours of clinical placement experience; a requirement directly linked to (BASRaT) accreditation. We have placement opportunities with sport rehabilitation clinics, University based and local sports teams and teams further afield for students who are prepared to travel. As part of the course students will complete a recognised advanced trauma care qualification (Level 2) that is endorsed by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. This qualification is a requirement stated by BASRaT and will serve to provide students with additional knowledge and skills that will be of great benefit while completing the Professional Clinical Practice module (SSP7155) and for their working careers.

The Cyncoed campus of the Cardiff School of Sport and Health Sciences (CSSHS) is well resourced with extensive and world-class practical facilities for the teaching, learning and research components of the programme and to support the recreational and elite sport culture within the CSSHS.


Formative assessment will be used to provide students with feedback on their progress and will help them to learn more effectively and aid in the development of key practical skills and critical, reflective thinking. Summative assessment methods will include written assessments, unseen examinations (written and practical), portfolios, placement evaluations, presentations, dissertation proposal and a dissertation thesis. A number of support mechanisms are available to aid students with assessments, these include, personal tutoring, academic support in the library and student services. Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma levels.

Employability & Careers

As a Graduate Sport Rehabilitator (GSR) you will be an autonomous healthcare practitioner specialising in musculoskeletal management, exercise based rehabilitation and fitness. The course is designed to achieve BASRaT accreditation and students who complete the accredited MSc programme will be eligible to apply for registration with BASRaT, which is the professional body that oversees and regulates the practice of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers in the UK. The 400 clinical placement hours required for BASRaT membership are included in the Professional clinical practice module, and this will provide students with the opportunity to use a problem-solving approach to sports injury management in the working environment. Through exposure and immersion in the professional environment the student’s professional autonomy, accountability and evidence-based practice will be enhanced to meet the industry standards and needs. The MSc degree in Sport Rehabilitation will lead you to career opportunities in: • Sports injury clinics • Health clubs • Professional sporting clubs • Fitness centres • Rehabilitation units • The military • GP referral schemes
