About the course

Our Sport Rehabilitation programme is accredited by the British Association of Sports Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT). Gain hands-on skills and experience while receiving the highest standard of teaching in a highly professional environment - for example, our Sport Injury Clinic.

This course gives you vital theoretical and practical skills, access to a Sport Rehabilitation Suite, other bespoke facilities such as world-class specialist equipment in our Health and Human Performance and Exercise Physiology Laboratories, and the opportunity to work with professional sports clubs such as Hull City FC.

There are three course options available for studying Sport Rehabilitation at Hull. The foundation year is ideal if you do not have the academic background for direct entry on to the three-year BSc course. The four-year Masters-level study option allows you to specialise in your desired subject in your final year to heighten your academic and practical credentials.

Your studies here will develop your communication skills, allowing you to translate the complexity of the various problems clients can present. Combining theory, evidence, experience, critical reflection and professional judgement, as well as client and peer review, you shape your own approach to treatment delivery while excelling in the competencies required in modern rehabilitation practice.

The University has strong placement links with sports teams at all levels, including Hull City, Hull FC and Hull KR, as well as local private practitioners and the Ministry of Defence. Our students also support major sporting and charitable events, from the Rugby World Cup, to the Great North Run.

Future prospects

When you graduate from the accredited degree programme in Sport Rehabilitation, you will have gained valuable theoretical and clinical skills regarding the prevention, assessment and management of neuro-musculoskeletal injuries. You may therefore be eligible to join BASRaT as a full graduate member, practice within the field of sport rehabilitation and use the initials GSR.

This particular course provides invaluable experience of supporting a variety of sporting or charitable events. Students provided support to international rugby league teams during the 2013 World Cup, while staff and students have also provided sport rehabilitation support for the Allam British Open Squash Championships, plus sports massage support during the BUPA Great North Run, the Jane Tomlinson Appeal 10k and the Hell on the Humber event.

Students graduating from our Sport Rehabilitation programmes go on to work within clinical settings such as the military (as exercise remedial instructors), the NHS, occupational health and all levels of sport. Some graduates have also set up successful private businesses. Others choose postgraduate study at PhD level.

Our programmes also develop a range of transferable skills, which are attractive to employers beyond the field of health, care and sport. These skills include written, verbal and non-verbal communication, leadership, problem solving, organisation, working as a team, time management and data analysis.
