Sports Therapy: a Practical Course with High Employability

Back to news listings

The University of Worcester still has a limited number of places remaining on a variety of different courses through the Clearing process, and is able to offer students an alternative pathway to their chosen career.

Due to the University’s outstanding reputation in Physiotherapy, we frequently receive huge number of applications from highly-skilled candidates, and therefore offer a number of alternative courses to help applicants fulfil their potential.

One of these alternatives is Sports Therapy, accredited by the Society of Sports Therapists. The three-year course enables students to develop an in-depth knowledge of musculoskeletal examination, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation alongside sports science disciplines.

The course provides extensive placement opportunities both in the UK and abroad for students to develop their clinical skills and sports science knowledge.

The course is structured to allow students to tailor modules according to their own strengths and interests; with the wide variety of modules eventual graduates are able to follow a number of different career paths.

Sports Therapy Course Leader, Darren Cooper, explains: “Sports Therapy at the University of Worcester provides students with a three-year course that is academically and practically stimulating, with modules ranging from Sports Massage in year one, to Advanced Trauma Management in year three.

“Students engage in every aspect of the course throughout the degree, gaining experience and developing life skills along the way.”
