Even with great talent, only a few dedicated and fortunate individuals achieve and enjoy a professional sports career. Most people in the industry are using their skills to encourage others to get fitter and remain active. As a graduate of a Sport, Sport Rehabilitation or Physiotherapy degree, you have the chance to forge a career from your passion.
A Sport, Sport Rehabilitation or Physiotherapy degree could lead to work with any age group or ability. Here are a few of the career options you might consider:
Britain is the birthplace of the Paralympics. This showcases how the right attitude, support and equipment can enable everyone to achieve in sport.
For every individual on the track, the pitch or the court, there is a team of professionals who have helped them reach that point. A Sport Physiotherapy degree could lead to working with elite athletes.
Sport Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy graduates need to register with the Health & Care Professional Council before applying for positions in that field. The majority are offered jobs in the NHS and private clinics. This may lead to work with professional clubs and athletes.
Many Sport graduates work in the hospitality and leisure industry which includes hotels, campsites, health clubs, cruise ships and luxury resorts. There are also opportunities in specialist sports clubs, schools, sports development and event management.
