This Master’s degree in Sport Rehabilitation aims to develop highly competent, industry ready Sport Rehabilitation practitioners with a critical awareness of the field. This aim is achieved by developing independent, reflective students with an understanding of professional issues, clinical reasoning and evidence based practice, whilst simultaneously equipping them with the wide spectrum of practical skills essential to Sport Rehabilitation. The course has a strong focus on practical skills and competences and all students must complete a minimum of 400 hours of clinical placement experience; a requirement directly linked to (BASRaT) accreditation*.

We have placement opportunities with sport rehabilitation clinics, University based and local sports teams and teams further afield for students who are prepared to travel. As part of the course students will complete a recognised advanced trauma care qualification (Level 2) that is endorsed by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
