New to TSR so trying to get the hang of this so apologies if this is in the wrong forum lol

I'll be applying soon to go to uni next year and want to study Sports therapy. I just wanted opinions on the course (is it enjoyable/boring/interesting etc).
Also, I just wondered what a typical day at uni is like for those who study this? For example time spent in lectures and seminars, basically how does your timetable look I suppose?

Any replies will be appreciated, thanks

Me too, there's hardly any info on here about the course I think it could be because its not as popular as courses like sports science etc. Ah well, hopefully someone will come across this and be able to help us out

Hi all

I'm in my second year of sports therapy in Exeter.
The timetable for the first year was Monday and Thursday all day.
This year I think it's Monday and Thursday lectures and Wednesday and Friday will be working with our assigned sports teams (mine is netball).

Good course, but not a lot of work out there afterwards. Depends on which route you want to take though...

Hope this helps

Thanks! Yeah I have to admit one thing putting me off this course is the lack of job opportunities afterwards, but having said that I'm sure it's like that with a lot of degrees these days.

My plan is to do Sports therapy followed by a 1 year PGCE Secondary PE course, so I can be a PE teacher the only problem is, is that I'm not 100% sure that many universities accept a degree Sports therapy to allow you onto the PGCE course :/ ? I don't suppose you know lol?

Willseat did you get any experience or anything before applying? If so what? And how is the course? Is it very hands on or do you just spend a lot of time in lectures etc?

I think the sports therapy course in Exeter is a foundation degree at Exeter college not the actual main site uni. That's just from looking online though so not 100% sure.

Just out of interest, what unis are you considering?

Am actually tempted to do sports science now instead of sports therapy but I can't make up my mind

Oh right sounds good. Are you going to go into Sports therapy as a career then? i want to focus on injuries etc but if I can't be a secondary PE teacher from sports therapy then I just won't do it I haven't looked at uni open days yet but I'm going to Plymouth Marjon open day in October that's the uni I REALLY wanna go to but I wanna see it in real life to get a feel of what it's like
My other choices are Teesside and Edge Hill, they seem quite cool.

Looked into Chichester and Gloucestershire too and the facilities look like they are very good but the accommodation is pretty expensive :/

And as for application, I have no idea, hopefully by December. I haven't started my personal statement yet either, I'm dreading it to be honest haha

Exactly like me, I don't really wanna live in London either. But I have to admit UEL looks amazing from what I've seen on their website
