3 years part time.

Applicants should normally have a good first honours degree of at least a UK upper second class or equivalent. It is expected that applicants can demonstrate significant relevant experience and clear potential for benefiting from the programme e.g.
- Doctors (GMC registered)
- Physiotherapists (Health and Care Professions Council / Chartered Society of Physiotherapy)
- Sports therapists or Sports trainers (British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers)
The intent is to open up to Sport & Exercise Science graduates, once we can ensure adequate online and tutor support is in place to accommodate the required anatomy knowledge, and international students who can provide evidence of equivalent qualifications.
Minimum English Language requirements for all postgraduate degrees in the Faculty of Biological Sciences are:
- TOEFL (internet-based) - a total score of 92, with no less than: 21 in listening and reading, 22 in writing, and 23 in speaking
- IELTS - score of 6.5 overall (with not less than 6.0 in any component)
- PTE: Pearson Test of English Academic: an overall score of 64, with not less than 60 in each of the four skills.
School/Unit responsible for the parenting of students and programme:
Centre for Sport and Exercise Science
Examination board through which the programme will be considered:
Faculty of Biological Sciences Graduate School
Relevant QAA Subject Benchmark Groups:
Adjusted Medicine benchmarks as appropriate according to the FSEM syllabus (this is linked to the NHS, and designed by that sub-speciality education board)
and GMC curriculum
The programme will:
a) Appeal to a target audience (entry requirement) of Doctors (GMC registered), Physiotherapists (Health and Care Professions Council / Chartered Society of Physiotherapy), Sports Therapists or Sports Trainers (British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers), and potentially Sport & Exercise Science graduates.
b) Offer a number of unique opportunities, arising from the largest concentration of UK SEM consultants and trainees in the Yorkshire region, providing experienced practitioner training and access to local MSK clinics. Arrangements with major sporting clubs and organisations will provide intense pitch-side placements.
c) Based at Leeds University, students will benefit from academic support from staff in Sport and Exercise Sciences (Number 1 in the UK for ‘world-leading’ research in the area of sport and exercise sciences from REF 2014; http://www.fbs.leeds.ac.uk/undergraduate/ugcourse.php?tsid=20), and Medicine and Health (one of the top 10 medical schools for research output; https://medhealth.leeds.ac.uk/info/190/about_us//).
d) Delivery will adopt a blended learning approach. With access to extensive recorded lecture bank and online resources, allowing maximum opportunity for distance learning, compulsory attendance at university will require approximately one day of activities per month (lectures, tutorial, practical sessions). A case-based approach to eLearning will be adopted, with required reading and set tasks.
e) The final component will be a dissertation, worth 60% of course credits. This will be based on a practically relevant topic, e.g. in-match GPS data analysis, systematic review of specific conditions, clinical guidelines for SEM application etc.
f) We will initially offer part time registration for an October 2017 start, with content spread over two years; a 1year full time course will be available in 2018, potentially with modular online CPD material available in 2019.
