Sport and Exercise Therapy - Anglia Ruskin University ARU

Immerse yourself in the world of sport, exercise, injury and rehabilitation. Get hands-on experience in our accredited labs in Cambridge, and graduate ready to work as a professional sport therapist. Sport or exercise therapists are a vital cog in the sport medicine teams that work with both professional athletes and in communities. Our brand-new degree course will give you the skills to work with a range of patients with different injuries, using evidence-based practice to bring them back to optimal levels of fitness and performance. All players need professional support pre-, during and post-performance – and sport therapists are the recognised people to work in this space. You're likely to find yourself working at sporting events, dealing with a range of emergencies, and also behind the scenes, bringing athletes back from injury over a number of weeks or months. But there are opportunities outside of professional sport too. Our course recognises broader national concerns about low levels of physical activity, and an aging population, leading to increases in incidents of poor health and susceptibility to injury. There's an emerging need for qualified healthcare professionals to work with groups or individuals in rehabilitation and also exercise referral in the wider population. You’ll learn to work safely and ethically as a sport or exercise therapist in our accredited labs in the Cambridge Centre for Sports and Exercise Science. We cover the core principles of sport and exercise science, alongside focused sport and exercise therapy modules. So, you can expect to get involved in a wide range of activities, from learning to provide pitch-side first-aid, dealing with spinal injuries, and delivering sport massage, to diagnosing injuries, formulating rehabilitation techniques, learning high-level exercise physiology, and delivering strength and conditioning training. By studying at ARU, you'll benefit from highly-experienced lecturers, including practising sport therapists, coaches, conditioning specialists, sports analysts, psychologists, nutritionists, and world-leading researchers. Our team currently includes a Paralympian World Record holder, Scottish Women’s Rugby player and Judo champion. We also host visiting guest speakers as part of our Excellence in Sport seminar series, which has had an array of speakers including Olympians, world record holders, elite coaches, an International Cricketer and Commonwealth gold medallist! Our course is accredited by the Society of Sport Therapists, the leading professional body in the UK.
