Entry requirements

A minimum of a 2.2 Honours degree or international equivalent in a relevant subject (sport and exercise science, nursing, sports therapy, physiotherapy, public health or medicine). Once you start the programme, the school will administer an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check on your behalf. A successful enhanced DBS check is required for you to be able to participate in a Clinical Placement, which forms a mandatory part of the second semester. You should therefore only apply for this programme if you are confident that your enhanced DBS check will be satisfactory and with the knowledge that you will not be able to complete the programme if it is not.
