Course overview

A rapidly expanding area in sports professions and research, Strength, Conditioning & Rehabilitation focuses on increasing peak performance and reducing injury risk and recovery time.

On this NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) accredited course, we bring together innovative testing, training and rehabilitation programme design principles with their basis in physiology, biomechanics and performance analysis. You’ll develop skills needed to operate as part of a team, and you’ll use those skills in the compulsory placement with one of our many sport organisations and school partners. With our focus on small class and practical learning, your assessments reflect graduate attributes sought by future employers, and for postgraduate study.

You’ll join a University where Sport is part of our fabric. Be it the extensive and accessible wellbeing and research facilities at our purpose-built Oxstalls Campus & Sports Park, our range of sports scholarship packages or array of clubs – sport is a huge part of life here at Gloucestershire.

To support your undergraduate journey, we also offer fee waivers, bursaries and awards, for both UK and International students. At the end, as a Gloucestershire graduate you can choose to pursue one of our sports-related postgraduate courses, receiving a priority offer and an alumni fees discount.
