About Us

University of Bolton, Lancashire, United Kingdom
We are lecturers and practicing professionals in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Our undergraduate BSc/BA (Hons) Sports programmes are dynamic vocational degrees delivered with the physically active in mind, whether that is within the local community, the recreational or professional athlete. Our experience and expertise in professional sport and private industry allows the sports student to gain first hand and current knowledge in the field of sports medicine, exercise and training. We maintain strong links in industry, which provides our students opportunities for excellent work experience placements. Community events also allow students to voluntarily offer their skills to assist the competitor, which further strengthens the role and credibility that our sports students play within the health and exercise medicine spectrum. Our in-house Sports & Spinal Injuries Clinic and Athlete Development Centre also provide our means of actual practice and teaching where we welcome anyone wishing to have their injury managed, or fitness tested, advised and monitored to the highest standards using recent and researched methods to access our facility in Bolton One.

Year 2s off to Wigan Warriors RFLC

Our year 2 students are heading down to Wigan Warriors training ground later this afternoon to provide an in-depth sports massage and stretching recovery session along with the Warriors medical team.  Getting elbows and hands dug in to the first team squad's quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, calves and back is just one of the modalities that our students learn as part of their development in helping athletes recover, and keeping them fit and on the field.  More to come from these regular student volunteering experience opportunities.
