This is the first Sports Therapy course in the country to offer students financial support towards travel costs they may incur as part of their Sports Therapy placements. Many Sports Therapy placements are based at professional and semi-professional sports clubs, for example Preston North End, Everton FC, and St Helens RFL and this can involve travelling at weekends and evenings. UCLan recognises the additional burden this places on students and will fund payments over the academic year (subject to meeting agreed criteria) of £120 for year 1 students; £210 for year 2 students and £300 for year 3 students. This is a potential payment of £630 over the course of the programme. This new initiative will be fully operational from September 2017.

UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
