What is required in my portfolio for Sports Rehabilitation?

You should understand the differences between a Sport Rehabilitator, a Physiotherapist, and a Sports Therapist as they are all different professions and regulated in different ways. The programmes of study, entry requirements and career routes are also different, despite a small amount of overlap in some areas of practice.

You should have awareness of The British Association of Sport Rehabilitators (BASRaT) - the accrediting body for sport rehabilitation programmes, and the practice regulator for sport rehabilitation professionals. You should also aim to have observed a musculoskeletal healthcare therapist in practice so that you have an appreciation of the therapist-patient interactions and environment. A sporting or private clinic context is preferable for this. You should have some work experience (in any field) but be able to recognise the transferable skills gained from your experiences which will benefit your development as a future clinician.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Sport Rehabilitation Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Sport Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy subject area.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
