Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Incorporating the pillars of sports therapy (e.g. recognition, evaluation, management, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of injury) you’ll learn the theoretical knowledge to underpin the practical skills necessary to enable injured athletes to return to full function and sport. On graduation, you will be a well-rounded practitioner ready to assist athletes to recover through rehabilitation and return to full fitness. The course has a significant practical element, with students completing hours of clinical practice in live, real world environments. You will also get the chance to work with amateur and semi-professional sports teams - exposing you to practice early on in the course. Current placement opportunities include a wide variety of; Premiership Football, National Rugby and Super League Rugby clubs across the country – alongside placement opportunities across a range of other sports and clinical environments. Work experience, research internships, participation in research conferences are all opportunities available to our Sports Therapy students. With support from the staff, if international placements are sourced, these can also provide our students with further experience in the field of Sports Therapy.
