Course summary

Course overview:

This course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers and the Sports Therapy Organization. It gives you a clear pathway towards a career in sports therapy, sports rehabilitation, health and exercise and related fields with eligibility to become a practicing member of both organizations.

Using a problem-based learning and practical skills development approach, you will gain an advanced understanding of: assessment, diagnosis and rehabilitation of a range of health and sports related conditions and develop these skills through supervised clinical experience. You will explore evidence-based practice, therapeutic interventions and rehabilitation combined with physiological, biomechanical and psychosocial factors, evaluating how they impact upon or are affected by health and exercise, sports injury, treatment and rehabilitation and you will apply your learning from these modules to conduct a self-initiated research project.

How you are assessed:

Assessment methods include assignments, critical review, presentations, portfolios and practical examinations.

These methods allow you to demonstrate a critical and systematic understanding and application of the relevant curriculum. Professional and key transferable skills are also developed through these assessments. You are required to undertake appropriate research, using the skills developed in the core modules and this provides the impetus for the development of your project proposal. The sport and exercise research project module gives you the opportunity to demonstrate an appropriate standard of research and enquiry into a specialist area, selected by you, displaying an original and/or compelling study or review of that area.

Career opportunities:

Typically, graduates are employed as sports therapists and sports rehabilitators. However, you are also well prepared for employment in related areas including the health and fitness industry, sport development, research and sport science support.
