Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

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.
