Course summary

**Why study this course?**This course, which is accredited by The Society of Sports Therapists (SST), prepares you for a career as a sports therapist by teaching you to recognise, manage and treat injuries incurred by athletes and dancers. You’ll develop your understanding of sports therapy as a subject and learn to apply your knowledge to dance.You’ll study relevant science subjects in order to help you understand the pathologies and management of injuries, and will learn how to put together injury assessments and rehabilitative plans for athletes. This course differs from others of its kind in that it applies particular focus to factors and issues that are unique to dance.**More about this course**You’ll receive support and guidance from our highly experienced staff such as course creator and Principal Lecturer Joanna Jenkins, who has previously worked with organisations such as the Royal Academy of Dance. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake work placements, thanks to our wide network of external contacts and our on-site clinic.This course opens up a number of career options in the rapidly developing area of dance science. By combining dance and sports therapy, this course gives you the skills needed to pursue roles such as dance company therapist (in-situ or touring), injury prevention officer for dance schools and companies, or pre- and post-performance masseuse.You could also choose to set up your own clinic or work as a consultant, providing screening, choreography advice, prehabilitation and rehabilitation.**What our students say**"I wanted a way of staying in the dance industry now that I'm not dancing and didn't want to teach - sports and dance therapy is perfect. It will mean I can use the knowledge I have along with new skills to help the next generation of dancers through their training and careers." -Year 2 Sports and Dance Therapy student
