About

Help athletes back to full functional fitness with the hands-on, accredited Sport Rehabilitation and Conditioning (Hons) programme of the Plymouth Marjon University.

Overview

Course Summary

The three-year, full-time Sport Rehabilitation and Conditioning (Hons) programme of the Plymouth Marjon University inspires and motivates students to develop their passion for sport and exercise rehabilitation. It is the perfect course for those interested in working with athletes, returning them to full functional fitness through expertly developed rehabilitation programmes. It also encompasses health rehab interventions in the community where you'll work with special patient populations to improve their everyday quality of life.

During the course many students enjoy placement opportunities with professional sports teams including Plymouth Raiders, Plymouth Argyle FC, Plymouth Devils Speedway, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth Storm Wheelchair Basketball.

This degree programme comprises enriching theoretical and evidence-based study, blended with practical application in our world-class sports centre. Students are given the opportunity to gain a minimum 400 clinical hours of hands-on experience. A number of additional qualifications are included at no extra, including the Intermediate Care in Sport Level 2 RFU qualification, Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer courses.

You'll experience the practical side of exercise rehabilitation from the very beginning of the course in our Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation clinic, always underpinned by the scientific principles of therapeutic interventions and developments in the field of sports therapy and rehabilitation. In the third-year students undertake the majority of their placement in this modern teaching clinic under the supervision of qualified staff. This includes opportunities to learn how to use latest technologies, e.g. diagnostic ultrasound, an innovative anti-gravity treadmill, RS footscan, laser therapy, interferential therapy for clinical assessment and rehabilitation.
