Course content

Designed specifically for students from a non-clinical background, Applied Sport and Exercise Medicine allows you to specialise in the theory of managing sports injuries and illnesses, exploring the relationship between exercise and health, and get real-life experience in the field.

As part of the course, you'll receive special training courses to allow you to do CPR and first aid as well as taping and sports massage.

We want you to be able to go where you want to in your career, whether that be working in a sports team or doing research. We'll help you get there with placements at real sporting events throughout your time with us and teaching from leading clinicians, research scientists, and sports and exercise medicine experts.
