Integrated Masters in Sports Rehabilitation

Course Introduction

This dynamic programme is professionally accredited by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT), providing you with the skills to work with active individuals or sports teams of all ages, from recreational to elite standard. Our Graduate Sport Rehabilitators (GSRs) are trained to be first response practitioners working pitchside at sporting events and are qualified to assess and treat musculoskeletal injuries from the point of injury. There’s a big emphasis on injury prevention and exercise prescription, including programming for return to sport, performance enhancement and improving health and function in populations with injury, illness and disease.

Here at LSBU you will study in one of the largest Schools of Health and Social Care in the country. This will provide you with excellent opportunities to become familiar with the wider healthcare community and how this relates to the work of a GSR. Additionally, as part of this programme, you have the opportunity to qualify as a Sports Massage Therapist and register with the Sports Massage Association, as well as being eligible to be listed on the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs). You will also undertake the Immediate Care In Sport Course (Level 2) which is accredited by the Rugby Football Union (RFU).

There are excellent onsite facilities at LSBU including an Academy of Sport, an onsite clinic, and state-of-the-art clinical and human performance laboratories. In addition to our top-class facilities, our central London location provides easy access to a range of exciting health, sport and exercise clinical placement opportunities which you will undertake as an integral part of your course, allowing you to combine theory with evidence-based practice.

This programme is also available as a three-year undergraduate degree.
