We develop students to become confident sport rehabilitators, equipped with the knowledge, skills, and flexibility to work independently across a range of sporting, health, rehabilitation and exercise environments. Accredited by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT), our BSc Sport Rehabilitation programme develops your clinical assessment and treatment skills to work with patients and athletes of all ages to rehabilitate them following injury. We are committed to developing sport rehabilitators within a supportive, nurturing environment. You will work across key areas of injury prevention, health, wellbeing and sporting performances, designing and implementing exercise and rehabilitation programmes for your clients. Renowned for our sporting success, you'll have access to the excellent facilities in our David Ross Sports Village to enhance your learning. You will also gain additional clinical experience by undertaking over 400 hours of practise placements in sporting environments including the opportunity to work in the University Sports Injury Clinic.
In year one, you'll be introduced to the academic concepts and practical skills required for professional practice. This includes anatomy, physiology and human movement. Year two is divided between academic study and a clinical placement in a sport rehabilitation or exercise-related setting. You'll further develop your knowledge and skills in the management of sports injuries, injury prevention, nutrition and exercise physiology for performance enhancement. Placements continue in year three, alongside a choice of optional modules, a research project and a community-based project. Optional module topics may include: business and management skills, strength and conditioning, disability in sport, management of pain. Placements may be subject to change due to the coronavirus pandemic. The latest information will be updated on our online course pages.
