Course content

Interest in sport and exercise in the UK has increased significantly, and those working in the industry require a diverse set of skills. This course will enable you to help athletes recover from injury and aid the general population in maintaining physical lifestyles.

You will gain practical expertise that will allow you to assess, treat and support individuals from a variety of sporting disciplines. For example, you will understand the process of an injury audit to identify risk factors, and learn how to implement an evidence-based treatment plan that minimises the chance of re-injury. You will study rehabilitation strategies, return to play assessments and explore the emergent field of rehabilitation, meaning you can prevent as well as treat injuries. All of this will allow you to accurately evaluate and attend to injuries, as well as help clients to avoid future physical discomfort and damage.

With access to both our Health and Carnegie faculties - including modern science and rehab labs, and sport facilities - you'll be empowered to effectively manage an individual's physical wellness, regardless of age or competitive level.
