Course summary

BSc(Hons) Sport Rehabilitation is accredited by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT) – so you can register with them once you graduate. Combining university-based experience with extensive placement experience, you’ll learn how to provide safe and effective care to people suffering injury, illness or disease related to sports and musculoskeletal conditions. Gain first-hand experience of providing injury assessment and management services to patients in both clinical and sports-based environments. Provide services to local sports teams and clubs, and UWE’s elite athletes in our Glenside injury clinic. Engage with practising graduate sport rehabilitators, sport dietitians, strength and conditioning coaches, physiotherapists and academic tutors working at the forefront of sport rehabilitation and physiotherapy. Complete a pitch-side first-aid qualification, as a valuable extra certification for working with sports teams. Register with BASRaT after passing your first year, so you can start practising as a sports massage therapist. Spend at least 400 hours on placements, working with elite sports medical teams, sports injury clinics, sports clubs, fitness centres and rehabilitation units, putting you in a strong position for future employment. Graduate sport rehabilitators are in demand across the UK. You could work in sports injury clinics, health clubs, professional sports clubs and fitness centres, with the military or as part of a GP referral scheme. Some graduates set up in private practice, or go on to postgraduate study.
