This course opens up opportunities throughout the health and fitness sector, with Sports Therapists working for teams, individuals and in health clubs in the United Kingdom and abroad.

At Moulton we will provide you with the latest skills needed to work in the cutting-edge field of sports therapy. Under the guidance of expert lecturers you’ll learn how to assess injuries, learn pitch-side injury management and design injury prevention and rehabilitation programmes.
