Course content

The degree provides students with the knowledge and understanding required to assess and manage musculoskeletal injuries from the acute stage through to return to sport or activity.

There is currently a high clinical demand for provision of highly skilled, autonomous and analytical therapists specialising within the field of prevention, assessment and management of sports related injuries.

This demand is from sportsmen and women, teams and clinicians currently working in the field of amateur and professional sport and this course aims to provide specialists in the field of Sport Rehabilitation to fulfil this demand.

The teaching staff at St Mary's have a vast amount of experience working with athletes at all levels of competition. The structure of the course embeds placements into the programme, allowing students to bridge the theory to practice gap as they progress through their studies.

It enables students to observe and work with healthcare professionals working in high level sport and clinical settings providing an insight into the demands of the profession and the roles they will fulfill upon graduating.

The degree is underpinned by a detailed understanding of physiological, biomechanical, anatomical and psychosocial principles.

The Sports Rehabilitation course has two fully equipped treatment rooms for lectures and practicals. In addition to this, we have a dedicated lecture room and a rehabilitation gymnasium.
