Back of the net

An industry-focused degree, coupled with outstanding opportunities for applied work experience, ensured Joe Lewis was ‘match fit’ for his dream job as a Physiotherapist at Liverpool Football Club.

During his degree, Joe was able to complement his studies with practical clinical placements, which gave him knowledge and skills he could take directly into employment. After graduating, Joe joined Wrexham FC as a Sports Therapist while training as a Chartered Physiotherapist. He moved to Liverpool FC as an Academy Sports Therapist in 2009, where he progressed to Academy Physiotherapist, before being promoted to Physiotherapist – a career goal that was made possible by his time at Edge Hill University.

“Without the course I would have never been given the opportunity to work at Liverpool. Having that highly regarded Sports Therapy degree, alongside voluntary work I was able to undertake, made my CV stand out to employers. The placement opportunities were the best part of the course as they allow you to consolidate your learning in a practical setting.”
