The BSc (Hons) Sport Conditioning, Rehabilitation and Massage (SCRAM) degree provides you with the underpinning knowledge and practical application within the fields of strength and conditioning, sport rehabilitation and sports massage. On the programme, you’ll also explore underpinning knowledge from the sports science disciplines of physiology, psychology and biomechanics. This balanced, multi-disciplinary approach provides you with an in-depth understanding of training, as well as exercise and manual therapies for performance-enhancement and rehabilitation.
Work-based learning is a key element of the programme, to enable you to apply your knowledge from the programme in real-world settings and to gain value experience to use as a foundation for future employment.
Furthermore, the learning outcomes for modules across the programme are clearly linked to the UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) competencies leaving you well placed to pursue this independent professional accreditation upon graduation. The programme is also approved by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as part of the Education Recognition Program, providing a basis of knowledge for you to pursue the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification. The University is an approved school with the Sports Massage Association (SMA) and provides you with the opportunity to gain standalone ITEC qualifications in sports massage that are linked to the completion of the appropriate modules. Finally, the programme leaves you ideally placed to pursue the BASRAT accredited MSc in Sport rehabilitation at Cardiff Met.
