Program description

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

Our Sports Therapy (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0). It’s designed to help you enter an undergraduate degree in sports therapy if you don’t hold the necessary requirements or traditional qualifications to begin the standard three-year course. We'll introduce you to the field of sports therapy and explore how it relates to physiology, anatomy, psychology and coaching.

On graduation you’ll receive the same title and award as students on the standard three-year course.

On our Sports Therapy (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) course, you'll gain an excellent understanding of how sports therapists assess, treat and rehabilitate sports injuries in order to help increase performance or prevent injury. A particular feature of the course is that you’ll also get hands-on experience through our fully equipped sports therapy clinic, which is open to the public for consultation and treatment.

Admission requirements

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

  • at least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma) but may not have achieved the appropriate grades to immediately join a BSc program
  • English Language and Mathematics GCSEs at grade C (grade 4) or above (or equivalent). Applicants who meet the UCAS points criteria but who obtained a D (grade 3) in English and/or Maths at GCSE may be offered a University test in these areas

Other applicants may have Level 3 qualifications such as A level, BTEC Extended Diploma or Access to Higher education qualifications with high UCAS points and grades, but not in the relevant subject areas eg Biology and Chemistry, which are required to study for BSc programs in the School of Human Sciences.
