Sports Therapy (with Foundation Year) at University of East London - UCAS

Course summary

Our Sports Therapy degree 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. You'll benefit from the diverse East London Sport community and our SMILES mentorship programme which was started by Earle Abrahamson. With us, you'll become highly employable and earn a reputable professional degree from which you can build a successful career. The extended BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy with Foundation Year is perfect if you want a degree in sports therapy but don't have the standard entry requirements. In your Foundation Year, you will study the fundamental skills and knowledge needed for you to achieve success on your degree. You will study alongside Foundation Year students from all our sports courses and learn from our dedicated team of sports academics. At the end of the year, you will even have the chance to progress on to a different sports degree if you wish.
