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.

Seton Hall University, New Jersey, USA

During this week, Adam is visiting one of our year 3 students, Michael Smith, who has been experiencing his clinical placement in the USA. Seton Hall University's Athletic Training department assisted in the arranging of exchange placements, where students will be able to gain an extended view of sports medicine in the USA. Michael has been able to experience University (NCAA divisions 1, 2 and 3) level sports provision, as well as High School AT provision. This year we will look to take 2 SHU students onto our placement lists and provide them with a unique 'British' experience! The next few years, we will look to make this happen again so that Bolton Sport Rehabilitation students can have to opportunity of the experience.
