This Sports Therapy (Hons) programme from Hartpury College is accredited with the Society of Sports Therapists, which means you’ll graduate ready to work as a qualified practitioner. You’ll benefit from lots of hands-on experience on and off campus, working as part of multi-disciplinary teams to treat sports injuries and conditions.
You’ll learn from lecturers and staff who are also practising industry professionals, as you gain the skills and knowledge you need. Throughout the course you’ll work closely with sports therapists, strength and conditioning experts, physiotherapists and others. You’ll study modules that have been informed by industry needs, which means you’ll graduate with the skills that employers are looking for.
