PDip - Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation, MSc - Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation
The School of Sport and Exercise Sciences is one of the most exciting and innovative sports schools in the UK.
The School is based on the University’s award-winning Medway campus and has well-equipped, state-of the-art sports science laboratories, sports therapy clinic, sports rehabilitation gymnasium and respiratory clinic. The University of Kent has recently benefited from the development of Medway Park, an £11 million project to create a regional centre of sporting excellence that was an approved pre-Olympic training camp venue for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Medway Park has hosted a number of major sporting events, such as the Modern Pentathlon World Cup and European Championships.
The programme takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of sports therapy and sports-related injury rehabilitation. The MSc aims to enhance your understanding of the scientific principles underpinning preparation for, participation in, and recovery from sport and exercise. It develops your understanding of current theory, research and debates in sports therapy and rehabilitation, and gives you the opportunity to conduct an in-depth study in your chosen areas of interest. There are practical sports clinic and laboratory experiences within modules on this course.
The course is designed to develop the professional and academic skills of graduate sports therapists, rehabilitators, and similar practising professionals. Health and sport professionals who want to take modules on a stand-alone basis for continuing professional development are welcome to contact us.
