Diverse Degrees: Sport Rehabilitation


The University of Bradford offers a BSc (Hons) in Sport Rehabilitation, accredited by the British Association of Sports Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT). At the end of the programme students will be eligible to apply for membership to BASRaT.

The course develops experts in the management and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries arising from sport and physical activity, also, the prevention of injury through information and advice on sport performance and healthy lifestyles. The students are trained to work alone or as part of multidisciplinary teams, developing an appreciation of the psychological, cultural and social factors that influence performance and health and wellbeing in sport.

Approximately one third of this three year degree is spent on practice placement, preparing the Sports Rehabilitators to work in a wide range of sporting settings including professional and amateur sports clubs, private clinics, hospitals, leisure facilities and community venues.

The University provides unique clinical experiences which have included the Paralympic training camps in the run up to the 2012 London Olympics, Bradford Bulls, Bradford City FC, Huddersfield Giants, Hull FC Rugby League clubs and Bradford and Bingley Rugby Union club.
