Course content

By studying this degree you will gain the skills and knowledge to work as an independent practitioner, assessing injuries, and aiding recovery through manual therapies and exercise prescription. The programme is endorsed by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT) and is one of the few MSc courses whose graduates are accredited for entry to the BASRaT register.

Our graduates work in a wide range of environments including sports clubs/teams, sports injury clinics, the ministry of defence and the performing arts.

St Mary’s was one of the first universities in the country to offer a Sport Rehabilitation degree. Our academics have a vast amount of experience working with athletes at all levels of competition. Many are engaged in leading-edge research, and all are passionate about teaching.

You will have access to teaching facilities designed with Sport Rehabilitation in mind, including our state-of-the art Performance Education Centre where you can learn and practice exercise-based assessments and interventions.

Our biomechanics laboratory is particularly valuable to MSc Sport Rehabilitation students undertaking dissertation testing. In addition, we operate a Sport Rehabilitation Student Placement Clinic and rehabilitation gym, where many will undertake part of their clinical placements. All this is in addition to the fantastic sports facilities at St Mary’s.
