Building on a firm academic underpinning in sports science, sports therapy and exercise principles, the programme provides students with a skills-set to succeed as a graduate professional in the vocational therapy and rehabilitation environment, as well as the ability to self-direct and develop professionally. The programme also reflects the current demands and requirements of employers and customers in the market place. This is evidenced in the diverse approach to the modules on the programme which is designed to equip the modern day musculoskeletal therapist with the skills needed to practice in both sport and the private sector.
Modules offered may vary. Modules will include: Neuro-musculoskeletal Pain Management Spinal Mobilisations Reflective Clinical Placement with Advanced Trauma Exercise, Health and Disease Prevention Dissertation
You will be assessed in a range of formats, from multiple choice exams to essays, reports, practical examinations, presentations, portfolios, projects and session delivery.

Points of entry
The following entry points are available for this course:
- Year 1
The most popular (and directly relevant) entry qualifications is the Fd Sports Therapy with Rehabilitation. Other Fd injury management or related discipline programmes would be considered providing the learning outcomes are compatible. Where there is a shortfall of clinical skills that can be met through additional training and assessment then attendance at a summer school will be required at a nominal cost (circa £100) where skills assessment and training will take place at level 5 marking criteria. Non-standard qualifications in a related discipline may be considered together with the need to demonstrate the academic rigour required to study at L5 (for example, an evidence based case study that demonstrates clinical reasoning and includes a review of literature). Applicants must also be able to demonstrate industry experience and enthusiasm at interview. Due to the demands for accumulated clinical hours in some accredited programmes that the course may apply for recognition with in the future, it may not be possible to obtain registration with these bodies if the professional placement hours have not been met. In all cases successful candidates require qualifications in English Language and Mathematics to at least GCSE grade C level or have demonstrated adequate skills and competencies in an interview.
