Course summary

The accredited Sports Therapy degree gives you the skills, knowledge and experience needed to treat and rehabilitate professional and amateur athletes. With sports therapy backgrounds in private practice, professional and semi-professional sport, our lecturers bring practical experience to their academic knowledge. Teaching combines formal lectures with practical laboratory and clinical workshops. As a Sports Therapy student, you’ll be guaranteed a placement, internship or volunteering opportunity to develop real-world skills. We also provide the experience of work under the supervision of The Society of Sports Therapists accredited staff, to deliver treatments in our sports therapy laboratory. With the support of our experienced lecturers, you’ll build skills in injury assessment, exercise rehabilitation and soft techniques including massage and joint mobilisation skills. You’ll also develop a scientific understanding of the physiological response to exercise. You will learn how to provide first aid and emergency trauma management in a high pressure sports setting, and Staffordshire University Sports Therapy Clinic will give you experience of a professional working practice. You’ll also work at a variety of events and venues. Past students have worked at Stoke City FC, Port Vale FC, Notts County FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, St George's Park and Widnes Vikings. They have also supported local marathons. Key skills you will learn during the course include anatomy, biomechanics, sports massage, rehabilitation techniques, electrotherapy, soft tissue therapy, spinal mobilisations, physiological response to exercise, kinesiology and nutrition. You’ll complete a research project in your final year, as well as the professional placement experience. The placement should combine clinical and field experience to broaden your skill set.
