Do you want a career in sports injury management and treatment? Are you excited by the opportunity to work with athletes and sports teams? Our BSc in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation is a practically-focused degree pathway that enables you to develop the knowledge and professional skills to work within the area of sport and exercise injury assessment, management and rehabilitation. This four-year course includes an initial full-time Foundation Year and offers an alternative route into university and gaining a degree. This route is for you if you do not have the necessary qualifications or don’t yet feel ready to begin degree-level study, or are returning to education and would like some support to get up to speed with learning in a university setting. The Foundation Year in Sport and Exercise will allow you to develop your academic skills and confidence as well as introduce you to key concepts, debates and skills that will support and inform your subsequent years of undergraduate study. Following successful completion of your Foundation Year, you’ll progress onto Year 1 of our Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation BSc (Hons) degree. This course is accredited by the Society of Sports Therapists. Students will be eligible for full membership once they have completed their professional work placement and graduated from the University.
Academic Skills and Studying with Confidence: We'll help you develop core academic skills such as using electronic resources, planning and note-taking, communication skills related to essay and report writing and delivering presentations. You'll learn how to manage your time, how to prioritise and how to manage stress, and you’ll become more confident in engaging with collaborative learning, debates, discussions and critical reflection. Project: You’ll study an area of interest related to your chosen degree. You’ll work individually on your project, whether that's a written report, a presentation and oral examination, a film or a series of blog posts. You’ll undertake problem-solving learning, and formative feedback and support will be provided throughout, helping develop your self-confidence. Scientific Principles within Sport: This module explores multi-disciplinary perspectives on sport, exercise, physical performance and rehabilitation therapies including physiological, psychological, biomechanical, tactical, pedagogical and rehabilitation. An introduction to basic key theories will be followed by practical activities to illustrate and understand these perspectives. You'll learn about methods used to evaluate sport, exercise and physical performance, including interpretation, presentation and reflection on data. Promoting Exercise, Physical Activity and Health: This module examines the role exercise plays in health from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Through a variety of activities, you’ll gain an understanding of basic key theories, such as health and wellbeing, behaviour change, health and safety, intervention design and working with clients. You’ll be taught through a blended approach comprising lectures, practical workshops (including laboratory sessions and field-based activities), debates, guided independent work and groupwork, as well as online learning.
