Sports Therapy at Nescot

Nescot Sports Therapy Foundation Degree


 Sports Therapy : Foundation Degree

Our passion and continued involvement in the sports industry is one part of our effectiveness as a department, but we believe our student-centred approach to teaching is what really sets us apart.

The full-time Foundation Degree in Sports Therapy at Nescot is a two year course, following the guidelines of the Society of Sports Therapists to address the sport and fitness industry’s demand for professional treatment and rehabilitation of injured participants.

With an increasing emphasis on ‘Sport for All’ and an escalating participation at all levels, it has become essential to have qualified professionals in the treatment of sporting injuries.

An important element to the qualification is the work experience done in the Nescot Sports Therapy Clinic and other local clinics and practices, to complement theoretical constructs and themes.

The course is endorsed by the Sports Therapy Organisation and therefore on the successful completion of the course can apply for insurance to work.
