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.

A short hop over to Huddersfield Giants RLFC

Today, Anna Fitzpatrick and Adam Naylor from the Sport Rehabilitation team headed Yorkshire-bound to Huddersfield Giants RLFC for a quick visit to our year 3 student on clinical placement with the medical team at the club.  Good to hear she is getting stuck in and doing well!  The journey had a two-fold purpose, the Rugby League injury surveillance research we are carrying out is in it's first full year of collection, so it's great to have the input and support of Dave, the lead physio at Giants.  Watch this space!
