Approximately 16 hours a week to include lectures, seminars, practicals and tutorials.

Wednesday afternoons are reserved for sport and other extra-curricular activities. Students can expect to receive their timetables during induction week.
Learning and Teaching Approach
This programme is delivered with a variety of learning and teaching approaches to include all students learning styles and preferences. For all modules, theory lectures are delivered that aim to deliver the core content and provide the underpinning knowledge. To complement the theory lectures, students have group seminars / practical sessions that are used to reinforce concepts delivered theoretically. The teaching methods focus on facilitating a student centered approach to enhance the independent learning that takes place outside of the classroom.
How You're Assessed
Assessment includes written assignments, seminars, short answer exams, poster presentations, coaching practical, case studies, presentations and independent projects. Opportunities for feedback on assessments are available prior to the final submission to support student development and achievement. Staff aim to return assessed work within a 15 working day timeframe (not including holidays) in order that students can most benefit from the feedback.
On graduation you will have the skills and knowledge to gain employment within a range of sport and exercise therapy and rehabilitation settings.
Equipment / Additional Costs
Bishop Burton Sports Kit is available for purchase from our online shop at the student’s discretion. (The cost will vary depending on kit purchased; approximate cost £100). A suitable electronic device, e.g. a laptop or tablet, with internet connectivity is required for accessing online learning. A range of additional qualifications, short courses and study tours / trips may be offered at additional cost. On successful completion of the programme, students have the opportunity to graduate at a ceremony wearing formal dress. The hire of the formal dress is an additional cost.
