What will I learn?

**Course overview**- For any athlete, injuries happen. Be the one they turn to, with the specialist knowledge and skills to manage their rehabilitation and drive their recovery to peak performance.- This degree programme offers the opportunity to learn both the theory of sport therapy and the hands-on skills of making it happen. It’s your chance to get to grips with the expertise vital for caring, managing and rehabilitating sportspeople – whether professional and amateur – back to full fitness.- You’ll learn how to assist athletes with comprehensive injury assessments and sports-specific rehabilitation programmes, involving exercise, soft tissue mobilisations and manual therapy. As such, you’ll cover areas of physiology, psychology, pathology and exercise rehabilitation. Hone your skills on placement with Premier League or Championship football clubs, National Rugby or Super League Rugby Clubs, or in a range of other sports and clinical environments.- There’s a real emphasis on manual therapy, massage and sports specific exercise as key therapeutic approaches – skills you can’t always develop in the classroom. So you’ll find a big practical element to your studies. You’ll not only work in our own sporting facilities, but also experience clinical practice in live, real-world environments – with a huge range of placements, including professional and amateur sports clubs.**Why study with us**- Bachelor of Science with Honours in Sports Therapy is ranked 12th in the UK with 95% of students satisfied with learning opportunities (National Student Survey 2020)- Our Sports Science courses are ranked 13th out of 78 institutions in the UK in the Guardian League Table 2021.- This is the first Sports Therapy course in the country to offer students financial support towards the cost of travelling to their placements.
