Using a problem-based learning approach, students investigate the full range of therapies and practical, hands-on injury treatments, relating these to the relevant theoretical evidence; students have the opportunity to combine this with physiological, biomechanical and psychosocial factors, and evaluate how they impact upon or are affected by sports injury, treatment and rehabilitation; practical experience is an essential element of the programme gained on placements in public or private settings or in sports therapy support projects connected with the University's sports injury rehabilitation centre.
Applicants should normally have a good Honours degree in sport science or a related area; an enhanced Disclosure and Disbarment check is required.
Core modules include: Clinical placement modules; clinical science 1 (manual therapy 1); clinical science 2 (manual therapy 2); clinical science (sports rehabilitation); sport and exercise research project; understanding research in sport and exercise science.
These include assignments, critical review, presentations, portfolios and practical examinations.
