On successful completion, you should be eligible for full SST membership (additional costs may apply) allowing you to practice as a Sports Therapist in a wide variety of settings.
With access to a dedicated Sports Therapy Clinic, you’ll be taught in fully-equipped sports therapy suites, and physiology and biomechanics labs, which feature gold-standard equipment such as Alter G treadmill, Isokinetic Dynamometry, bod-pod and Vicon 3D motion analysis. We currently have close relationships with a number of local sports clubs and clinics to facilitate hands-on experience, which has previously included Coventry City, Southampton FC, Leicester Lions RFC, Bury FC and Wasps.
Accreditation from the Society of Sports Therapists means that on graduation you will be qualified to work as a sports therapist with professional teams, clubs or private clinics. Alternatively, you can access appropriate additional training to support professional football and rugby (additional costs may apply).
The Sports and Exercise Therapy (Hons) course from Coventry University includes a substantial amount of sport science, which can allow you to move into other careers in the leisure and sport area, such as management or service delivery in sport and leisure centres. If you are more interested in the medical and health applications of exercise science, you could go on to work within cardiac and other rehabilitation teams within the National Health Service (NHS) or with local councils within sports development or exercise for health schemes. The university's Talent Team can help you to find suitable work placements and give you advice on how to get the most out of them; they will also assist you to find a job when you are ready. The university’s Talent Team provide a wide range of support services to help you plan and prepare for your career.
