If you love sport and want to help others get the most out of their abilities and talents, then this course is ideal for you. It’s perfect if you want a degree in this area but you don’t meet the standard entry requirements. First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree. We have no hesitation in singing the praises of our sports therapy course. “I think it’s the UK’s leading course, based on its design, its brilliant staff and its location right next to the Olympic Stadium,” says Course Leader Michael Cole. “I think it’s unbeatable.” It’s a bold claim, but we believe our three-year course – potentially four if you choose our placement year option – merits it. Why? Because it produces sports therapists who’ve had the benefit of expert teaching, plenty of practical experience and whose skills are always in demand. If you want to work with injured athletes and help them back to full fitness and competition, this course is for you. You won’t just be there to step in when injury occurs, though. You’ll also need to learn and understand the sports science behind a successful diagnosis as well as how to manage injuries. With us, you’ll become highly employable and earn a reputable professional degree from which you can build a successful career.

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible. The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, half of your assessment will be based on research coursework and a work placement.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
