The MSci Sports Therapy aims to develop autonomous, independent and evidence-based Sports Therapy practitioners with a diverse range of intellectual, practical and transferable skills. The course provides numerous opportunities throughout each academic year to assess understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or ‘formative’ assignments in addition to ‘summative’ assessments.
Each module has one or more formal, ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade. Assessment methods include practical examinations, online examinations and a range of coursework assessments such as videos, literature reviews, lab reports, portfolios, presentations, an independent study project and a final year research thesis.
You will receive extensive feedback on ‘formative’ and ‘summative’ assessments undertaken by coursework. Feedback on examination performance is will be provided in written or audio form, and further feedback is available upon request from the module leader. Feedback is intended to support learning and you are encouraged to discuss it with personal academic tutors and module tutors as appropriate to support your academic development.
