MSci Sports Therapy course preparation

To help you feel prepared for your university studies, we’ve gathered together a range of course related activities including suggested reading, useful websites and some great things to do right now. Open the links below to find out more:

Your pre-entry workbook

An important part of preparing to study on the MSci Sport Therapy programme is the completion of a pre-entry workbook before Induction Week. You’ll find tasks to complete which relate to each module you will study during your first year and have an opportunity to write down any questions you have. These will then be addressed during your Induction Week.

You’ll find out more about Induction Week later on this summer.

You should bring your completed workbook to the first meeting you will have with your Personal Tutor who will advise you how it will be used and why it is important.

Suggested materials

Although you’re welcome to bring your own personal playing equipment all standard teaching and sports materials will be provided.

Appropriate kit will need to worn for the course and a number of items will prove useful. A list of mandatory and optional kit will be provided during Induction Week and you’ll have the opportunity to order the course kit which has the university and course name on it. You’re also recommended to invest in a good pair of training/running shoes for indoor and outdoor use

Ordered kit may take some time to arrive so in the meantime you’ll need to bring a plain t-shirt/polo shirt and shorts or tracksuit bottoms as kit must be worn for all practical/laboratory sessions.
