London Metropolitan University

Course Introduction

This is the only course in the UK that deals with the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of sports and dance injuries. Our staff include Jo Jenkins, who has worked with organisations such as the Royal Academy of Dance School, and the course is accredited by the Society of Sports Therapists. It combines practical work experience in our fully equipped therapy clinic open to the public, with relevant scientific knowledge, so you will have a number of career options, whether you want to be a dance company therapist, an injury prevention officer for a school or run your own clinic. Added value: 85% of students were in work / study six months after finishing the course (2013 National Student Survey).

Course Modules

Year 1: students gain a broad introduction to the life sciences, covering key concepts including functional anatomy, massage, sports therapy techniques, physiology and sports science disciplines. Year 2: students continue studies in greater depth and begin to specialise. Physiology and sports therapy techniques will be further developed, and additional, more specialised topics include dance therapy techniques, an introduction to dance science, manual therapy techniques, and rehabilitation. Year 3: final year topics reflect the current niche area of sports and dance therapy treatments and techniques.
