You’ll work on diagnosing and treating sport- and exercise-related injury within our world-class sports therapy facilities.  Our sports therapy students all develop clinical competence and a graduate-level ability to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate musculoskeletal injuries and dysfunctions.

The course is fully accredited by the UK Sports Therapy Organisation and, on completion, our graduates are entitled to membership with insurance at the level of Graduate Sports Therapist.

During the course, you’ll work on your academic and practical skills, meaning your approach to sports therapy will involve a blend of theory and evidence-based knowledge

Our wide range of modules includes diagnostic and injury management, exercise rehabilitation and strength and conditioning. Supervised placement hours within the University’s sports therapy and rehabilitation clinic will help students’ development and understanding of pathologies and management of sports injuries through practical experience.
