Sport Rehabilitation and Conditioning BSc Welcome Pack

Welcome to Sport Rehabilitation and Conditioning BSc 2022.

Congratulations on receiving an offer to study with us! The information contained in this welcome letter is designed to give you a brief insight to our BASRaT-Accredited Sport Rehabilitation and Conditioning degree you have chosen to study, and the preparation that you can undertake to get ready for your studies.

We are really excited by the way our degree has developed since we started in 2019 and how our graduates are developing into multidisciplinary and multi-skilled professional sports rehabilitators. This course focuses on key study areas throughout each year including modules related to:

  • Anatomy
  • Physiology
  • Sport massage and mobilisation
  • Injury assessment and treatments
  • Athlete screening
  • Injury prevention
  • Strength and conditioning
  • Research methods
  • and performance enhancement

An important feature of our degree is the way we utilise our strong relationships with industry to help you to study in a ‘real world’ context and not just in the classroom. We will work with you to help develop your technical, personal and employability during the course in which you are required to attain a minimum of 400-hours work-based learning during the course

We like to communicate with and showcase what our students are doing so you can find out more about the course and begin to network with our existing students by following our course Instagram page @uon_sportrehab

Welcome and Induction sessions

We would like to invite you to join us and other students starting BSc Sport Rehabilitation and Conditioning this year for some online welcome and induction talks. The details and joining links for each session are as follows:

 

Equipment

Students are not required to buy any compulsory kit or textbooks to start this course.

As a heavily practical based course, you will be required to wear sportwear for many of the modules. We will provide you with a course branded t-shirt; further branded kit is available from Kit Locker.

While this is not mandatory, we do encourage students to consider buying an additional pair of tracksuit bottoms / leggings as these will be useful for circumstances such as completing work based learning activities and when representing both our course and institution at sporting events.

Enhancing skills, building networks and engaging in the wider University community

As you develop and progress through this course, you will be provided opportunities to engage in a wide range of skill development and employability focused activities. To support the accumulation of your required 400-hours our students work in our on-campus Sport Injury and Rehabilitation Clinic (SIRC) during which you will implement the skills you have learnt on the course, under fully qualified supervisors, with real clients, with real injuries giving you the much needed clinical experience to prepare for future working environments.

Students will also have the opportunity to undertake additional certificated courses in areas related to sport trauma and pitchside care, and the Therabody Licenced Massage Therapist.
