Course Description

This modern, vocational programme provides skills and knowledge for the management of musculoskeletal injury, to enable patients to progress on to health and fitness training programmes.

Sport Rehabilitation graduates are trained in Sports and Exercise Medicine principles, with an emphasis on the design and implementation of exercise and rehabilitation programmes. As a Sport Rehabilitator, you may work alongside many other health professions or as an autonomous practitioner.

You will undertake work-based clinical placements as an integral part of your degree, allowing you to experience the benefits of combining academic theory with clinical practice in a working environment. Previously, students have completed placements with England Women’s Rugby, Harlequins, London Broncos, Millwall Academy, Crawley Town FC and many others.

The programme has excellent partnerships with professional sports clubs and sport injury clinics in the region, enabling you to develop the necessary clinical skills required to secure employment after you graduate.
