Sports Therapy - University of Gloucestershire

**Why Sports Therapy?** Our Sports Therapy degree focuses on the management of injuries for maximum sports performance, including the prevention, assessment and rehabilitation of injuries. You’ll learn about human anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, and develop skills such as sports massage, advanced injury diagnosis, joint mobilisations and rehabilitation. With opportunities to gain experience on placements with organisations such as Gloucester Rugby, AFC Bournemouth, British American Football and GB Ice Hockey, our graduates stand out from the crowd. You can also work with clients in our in-house sports therapy clinic to gain experience screening, assessing and treating professional athletes and members of the public. There are opportunities to develop your CV during your studies by achieving your pitch-side first aid qualification and progressing to become a qualified sports masseuse (additional costs may apply, see course web page for details). You’ll learn in fully equipped sports therapy suites, physiology and biomechanics labs, with the latest equipment such as full-body vacuum mattresses, diagnostic ultrasound, RS footscan, bodpod and Vicon 3D motion analysis. In addition, brand new sports facilities at our Oxstalls campus include an international-standard sports arena, 3G pitches, dedicated pitches for rugby, hockey and football and a cricket pavilion and pitch. The course benefits from accreditation with the Society of Sports Therapists, giving you eligibility for student membership during your studies and full membership on graduation. **Why University of Gloucestershire?** We’ve been using our expertise to support and inspire students since 1847.
