Each learning resource centre offers a range of services such as libraries, careers advice, learning support and study spaces, as well as access to resources including books, journals, newspapers, trade literature, online resources and DVDs.
Each centre also has a computer suite that provides access to network drives, the internet and Moodle, as well as hardware such as printers, copiers and scanners. Specialist software includes AutoCAD and packages for horse management, farm management, garden design, accounting, statistics and mind mapping.
For anyone requiring additional support, the learning resource centres at Moulton and at the vocational skills academies offer learning support, where needs can be discussed and arrangements put in place.
Since offering our first sports studies course in 1999 we have responded to the enormous growth in demand by investing heavily in new facilities.
The John Ashby Sports Hall, opened in 2000, contains a sports therapy clinic, while more recently our purpose-built Chris Moody Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation Centre was opened in 2012.
The first of its kind in the UK and only the second one in Europe, the centre aims to become a centre of excellence in the provision of neuromuscular rehabilitation. It provides a base for clinicians looking to build their own private practice and offers opportunity for established clinicians, athletes, sports clubs and other medical staff to access world-class rehabilitation facilities.
A whole-body cryotherapy chamber (the only liquid nitrogen chamber in the UK not affiliated to a professional football club)
A hyperbaric chamber
Six thermal, infrared saunas
A water therapy pool
A hydrotherapy pool
A 25-metre swimming pool with moveable floor
Sitting alongside this clinical provision is our education provision, where students can learn about sports therapy and rehabilitation in the very best training environment.
Teaching areas include therapy suites, a biomechanics analysis laboratory and changing facilities for the pool and other sports facilities.
Students manage an in-house Sports Therapy Clinic which is open to fellow students.
