You'll be taught on our beautiful and historic campus located in Twickenham, London.
A variety of teaching methods are used in the programme. These include theory and practical sessions as well as group and seminar work. In addition, there are multiple online resources available to students to support their learning.
The level 4 (year one) programme begins with an induction in which you work on group activities designed to develop communication, listening and teamwork skills. There is also the opportunity to work together and get to know your peers in a fun setting, whilst practising the skills that are needed throughout the course of the programme.
These themes continue into levels 5 and 6 (years two and three) where clinical placements are included. Surrounding the placements are intensive periods of teaching where the appropriate clinical and academic skills are taught.
Theoretical lectures may contain the entire year group of 80 to 100 people, and in practical sessions, you'll be in groups of 40 to 60 with one member of staff for every 20 students.
Modules are assessed through a variety of methods, including written theory examinations, vivas, oral presentations and written coursework across all levels.
The practical viva's form a significant part of the assessments due to the clinical nature of the programme. In addition, at level 6 there is an independent research project to complete, as well as a formal clinical examination at the end of the degree.
We adhere to the university’s policy of providing feedback on assessments within 15 working days.
Our Sport Rehabilitation BSc will help you develop essential transferrable skills, such as collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
