Program description

Sports and Dance Therapy BSc (Full-time)

Developed in partnership with the Society of Sports Therapists (SST), this fascinating degree gives you the skills you need to become a sports therapist. You'll learn to assess, treat and rehabilitate athletes and dancers following injury or dysfunction. Our fully equipped sports therapy clinic, which is open to the public for consultation and treatment, gives you hands-on experience to complement the scientific learning.

This course, which is accredited by The Society of Sports Therapists (SST), prepares you for a career as a sports therapist by teaching you to recognise, manage and treat injuries incurred by athletes and dancers. You’ll develop your understanding of sports therapy as a subject and learn to apply your knowledge to dance.

You’ll study relevant science subjects to help you understand the management of injuries, as well as how to put together injury assessments and rehabilitative plans for athletes. This course differs from others of its kind in that it applies particular focus to factors and issues that are unique to dance.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have: 

  • a minimum of grades CCD in three A levels (or a minimum of 88 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Extended Diploma in Applied Science with MMM)
  • GCSE English and Mathematics at grade C/grade 4 or above (or equivalent, eg Key Skills Level 3)

Entry from appropriate Foundation and Access courses will also be considered.

If you don't have traditional qualifications or can't meet the entry requirements for this undergraduate degree, you may still be able to gain entry by completing our Sports Therapy (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree.
