Program description

Sports and Dance Therapy (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Our Sports and Dance Therapy (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) course offers an alternative route into an undergraduate degree if you don’t meet the necessary requirements to enter the standard three-year course.

This course has a built-in preparatory year (Year 0) designed to equip you with the confidence and necessary study skills to begin study at undergraduate level. On graduation you’ll receive the same award and title as students on the standard three-year course.

Our bachelor's degree in sports and dance therapy will equip you for a professional career in roles treating athletic and dance injuries. This program is unique among other sports therapy courses in the UK as it focuses on issues that are unique to dance.

The built-in foundation year will provide the basis for your undergraduate study by teaching you key transferable skills in time management, writing, critical analysis and scientific research. You’ll also get introduced to the fundamental methods used by scientists, including basic mathematics concepts, analysing scientific data, laboratory techniques and presenting findings in graphs and written form.
