Your completed application form will be reviewed by our Admissions Team to ensure that you have the required entry qualifications. If you meet these requirements, then your application will be individually assessed by the Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Admissions Tutor and if successful, you will be shortlisted for interview.
Fitness to practise
Medical assessments of your mental and physical health and disclosure of criminal convictions apply to all applicants. This means you are required to complete the following:
- A health declaration form. Here you must demonstrate that you are of good health, good character, and can satisfactorily pass occupational health screening.
- A self-declaration form about your conduct.
- Obtain an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The cost of the DBS check is covered by the University.
Instructions on how you complete these checks will be sent to you once you hold a conditional firm offer with us. These forms are then reviewed alongside your application, and you must meet both the academic and fitness to practise requirements before you will be given an unconditional offer. If you are successful, you will also need to complete an annual declaration form to confirm you are fit and there are no changes to your DBS.
We prefer you to have some experience of delivering care in a professional or voluntary capacity and have a reference from a current or recent employer or educational institution. Evidence of the experience gained, understanding of the profession and a genuine, reasoned commitment to studying a professional course must be explicit in your personal statement to be selected for interview.
All applicants must attend an individual interview as part of the selection process. This may take place via Teams or in person.
You may be asked to provide additional references in terms of workplace experience/placement to support your application. Please note this must not be the same reference you have submitted as part of your application.
We select students based on their knowledge, motivation, experience, values, and behaviours, not just academic ability. You need to demonstrate the ability to:

- Use computers and technology associated with teaching, learning and assessment
- Interact with patients and colleagues in a caring and compassionate manner
