Overview

Interest in sport and exercise in the UK has increased significantly, and those working in the industry require a diverse set of skills. This course will enable you to apply science and medicine to help athletes recover from injury and reach their physical peak and also aid the general population in maintaining healthy lifestyles.

You will gain practical expertise that will allow you to assess, treat and support individuals from a variety of sporting disciplines. By understanding the process of an injury audit to identify risk factors, you will learn how to implement an evidence-based treatment plan that minimises the chance of reinjury.

You will develop a comprehensive knowledge of pathophysiology, biomechanics and sports-specific clinical reasoning, allowing you to accurately evaluate and treat injuries. You will study rehabilitation strategies and return-to-play assessments, and you will explore the emergent field of prehabilitation, which aims to prevent injuries before they occur.

As a student on this course, you will join a research-led academic community in the subject area of therapeutic and rehabilitation sciences.

You'll gain practical skills that you can apply straight away, whether you work or volunteer in sports, or are looking for your first job in the field. Our Sports Volunteer Programme has excellent links with professional sporting clubs and fitness initiatives, and you'll have the chance to maximise your learning by taking up additional experience opportunities offered through this.

You'll be taught by staff who are practising sports and exercise therapists with a huge amount of expertise and professional links.

As a student on this course, you will join a research-led academic community in the subject area of rehabilitation sciences.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

248 hours Teaching and learning Typically, this will include lectures, seminars, tutorials, supervised studio time or laboratory time and one-to-one meetings with your personal tutor.
Clock icon
1560 hours Independent study This is the time outside your timetabled hours when you will be expected to continue learning independently. Typically, this will involve reading, research, completing assignments, preparing presentations and exam revision.
Assessment proportions
You will be assessed broadly through an even mix of written assessments, oral presentations, written examinations and a practical examination. 

You will consider the acute physiological responses to exercise and chronic physiological adaptations to training. This module will provide you with a detailed evaluation of contemporary exercise testing and prescription methods.

This module will incorporate your training and assessment in current sports trauma management techniques utilised by health professionals.

Develop your clinical reasoning skills in the assessment of sports injuries, complex clinical presentations and pathophysiology. Under the module you will also enhance your skills in critical thinking, analysis and reflection. The understanding and application of current models of clinical reasoning allows the you to develop your present and future practice.

Incorporate a theoretical and practical approach which will develop your comprehensive understanding of injury management. You will explore key underpinning knowledge, skills and evidence for rehabilitation strategies for athletic populations. You will also critically review treatment strategies for conservative and surgical options inclusive of specific controlled conditions.

Explore specific aspects of the structure and function of the neuromuscular system and their relationship with intrinsic and extrinsic factors. The module provides you with an understanding of the mechanical basis of joint and muscle function, as well as developing an understanding of the relationship between external and internal loading factors which can lead to injury.

This module and its assessment provide the opportunity for you to conduct a master's level research project and disseminate the findings. You will produce a research proposal, apply as appropriate for ethical permission and carry out your research study. Following initial tutorials supported by online resources, you will be allocated a supervisor for one-to-one support.

Gain a detailed and critical understanding of the application of cardiopulmonary exercise testing and exercise prescription in populations with cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions. You will focus on the use of interpretative algorithms for the cardiopulmonary test data. You will also engage in a fairly intensive introduction to electrocardiography as well as survival statistics as they are used in clinical exercise physiology research.

Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 2020/21 on this course is £911.20 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £45.56. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
