We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
In order to comply with the requirements of The Society of Sports Therapists, students will be required to accumulate 200 hours of supervised clinical placements in a variety of settings. Students are primarily responsible for finding a placement, and academics may be able to support this process where needed. The School will cover all reasonable costs associated with work placements.
"This degree provides a rigorous academic qualification, and the opportunity to graduate with a CV with professional qualifications and experience."Cathy Thomas, Head of School of Sport and Exercise Science
The degree has a strong practical emphasis and students can access the specialist Human Performance Centre, which contains multiple sports laboratories, a strength and conditioning suite, and an ‘endless pool’, alongside a specialist Sports Therapy teaching room. Students can make use of the School’s Sports Injury Clinic to gain practical experience.
The School of Sport and Exercise Science has strong industry links. This includes its close relationship with Lincoln City Football Club.
Students can gain practical experience of providing exercise therapy in a real-world, professional setting by taking part in the University of Lincoln Sports Massage Clinic. The clinic is a service provided by students of the BSc Sport and Exercise Therapy programme and is designed to provide staff and students with massage treatments for a range of reasons including pre and post-sport performance, post-injury recovery, or general maintenance of physical and mental wellbeing.
Graduate roles might include working as self- employed sports therapists or within professional sports clubs or private practice. Further opportunities may exist in the health and sport sectors or through research careers.

Health and exercise professionals play an important role in tackling the health challenges we face as a society with a range of physical activities.
The importance placed on physical education as a vehicle for improving health, means that it continues to have political and educational significance.
Sports coaches inspire teams and individuals to achieve their goals, working across a variety of sports and a range of levels.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
