BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy

BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Therapy

The University of Lincoln was awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. This award is evidence of our exciting teaching, great support for students, and excellent employment outcomes.

The Course

BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy at Lincoln provides an academic degree alongside a vocational qualification and is accredited by the Society of Sports Therapists, subject to validation. Alongside the opportunity to acquire knowledge, understanding and practical skills in sports therapy, other key areas of the programme include the chance to develop a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and physiology, biomechanics and health related fitness.

This degree has been developed in response to the role that sports therapy can have in improving health. Upon successful completion of the degree students can assess athletes with a wide variety of sports injuries, understand the application of sports therapy treatments and implement rehabilitation and injury prevention programmes.

The degree has a strong practical emphasis and students can access the state-of-the-art Human Performance Centre, which contains multiple sports laboratories and an 'endless pool', alongside a new therapy suite in the Sarah Swift Building.

The Course

Sports therapy is a dynamic field and therapists are a crucial part of medical teams at many sports clubs, working alongside physios, sports medicine doctors, and sports scientists.

BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Therapy at Lincoln provides an academic degree alongside a vocational qualification, offering students the chance to develop the skills needed to work within the sports therapy industry.

The course gives students the opportunity to apply sports science knowledge and principles to the assessment and treatment of injuries within a sporting context. As well as focusing on the theory and practice of sports therapy, students have the chance to develop their understanding of anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, and health-related fitness.

The degree has been developed in response to the increasing role that sports therapy can play in improving health. Upon successful completion, students should be able to assess athletes with a wide variety of sports injuries, understand the application of sports therapy treatments, and implement rehabilitation and injury prevention programmes.

The course has been developed in collaboration with The Society of Sports Therapists, an accrediting regulatory body for sports therapy programmes.

The degree reflects current research-informed teaching and innovation within the sector. The first year is designed to provide a solid grounding introducing sports therapy alongside sports science theory. Year two builds upon skills in sports therapy and provides the opportunity to convert theoretical sport science knowledge into practice. In year three the course combines core and optional modules.

As part of the degree students can conduct independent research, and may have the opportunity to collaborate with staff and showcase work at national conferences such as the annual British Association of Sport and Exercise Science Conference.

Contact Hours and Reading for a Degree

Students on this programme learn from academic staff who are often engaged in world-leading or internationally excellent research or professional practice. Contact time can be in workshops, practical sessions, seminars or lectures and may vary from module to module and from academic year to year. Tutorial sessions and project supervision can take the form of one-to-one engagement or small group sessions. Some courses offer the opportunity to take part in external visits and fieldwork.

It is still the case that students read for a degree and this means that in addition to scheduled contact hours, students are required to engage in independent study. This allows you to read around a subject and to prepare for lectures and seminars through wider reading, or to complete follow up tasks such as assignments or revision. As a general guide, the amount of independent study required by students at the University of Lincoln is that for every hour in class you are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.

Assessment Feedback

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.

Methods of Assessment

The way students are assessed on this course may vary for each module. Examples of assessment methods that are used include coursework, such as written assignments, reports or dissertations; practical exams, such as presentations, performances or observations; and written exams, such as formal examinations or in-class tests. The weighting given to each assessment method may vary across each academic year. The University of Lincoln aims to ensure that staff return in-course assessments to students promptly.

Industry-recognised professional qualifications are integrated into the programme and can be acquired at no additional cost. These include Gym Instruction, Personal Training and Exercise Referral.

Student as Producer

Student as Producer is a model of teaching and learning that encourages academics and undergraduate students to collaborate on research activities. It is a programme committed to learning through doing.

The Student as Producer initiative was commended by the QAA in our 2012 review and is one of the teaching and learning features that makes the Lincoln experience unique.

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. These placements can be in a variety of settings and may include private clinics, working with professional teams or volunteering at sporting events. The aim of these placements is for students to apply their learning in real world settings. Students will be continually assessed during these placements and are expected to reflect on their experience.

Placements

Some courses offer students the opportunity to undertake placements. When students are on an optional placement in the UK or overseas or studying abroad, they will be required to cover their own transport and accommodation and meals costs. Placements can range from a few weeks to a full year if students choose to undertake an optional sandwich year in industry (where available). Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry independently. Tutors may provide support and advice to students who require it during this process.
