Course Description

Developed in partnership with the Society of Sports Therapists (SST), this fascinating degree gives you the skills you need to become a sports therapist. You'll learn to assess, treat and rehabilitate athletes and dancers following injury or dysfunction. Our fully equipped sports therapy clinic, which is open to the public for consultation and treatment, gives you hands-on experience to complement the scientific learning.

This course, which is accredited by The Society of Sports Therapists (SST), prepares you for a career as a sports therapist by teaching you to recognise, manage and treat injuries incurred by athletes and dancers. You’ll develop your understanding of sports therapy as a subject and learn to apply your knowledge to dance.

You’ll study relevant science subjects to help you understand the management of injuries, as well as how to put together injury assessments and rehabilitative plans for athletes. This course differs from others of its kind in that it applies particular focus to factors and issues that are unique to dance.

You’ll receive support and guidance from our highly experienced staff such as course creator and Principal Lecturer Joanna Jenkins, who has previously worked with organisations such as the Royal Academy of Dance. As well as academic leader Nick Gardiner, who has written for prestigious sports medicine publications.

You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake work placements, thanks to our wide network of external contacts and our on-site clinic.
