Course content

The in-depth study of science and sport has given researchers a greater understanding of how the human body reacts to exercise. Supported by pioneering facilities and expert staff, our course produces outstanding graduates who can help anyone participating in sport and exercise, whether at an elite level or within the general community, regain their peak potential. Gain an advantage by training at one of the leading sport and rehabilitation education universities in the UK.

This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to become an autonomous healthcare practitioner, specialising in fitness, exercise-based rehabilitation and musculoskeletal management.

We focus on increasing your critical awareness of the current trends in sport and exercise rehabilitation, and build your confidence in applying these pioneering advancements to the workplace. Sport rehabilitation research is consistently focused on improving athletic performance and reducing injury risk. Therefore our course focuses on building the knowledge and skills to implement rehabilitation programmes that return athletes to optimum fitness.

You will also have the opportunity to gain experience in the sport and exercise environment through a work placement. (Access will be dependent on social distancing requirements due to Covid-19.)
