UCLan are still taking applications for the upcoming MSc in Football Science and Rehabilitation starting in January 2021.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, all modules will be complete remotely and some modules can be taken in isolation to form a CPD portfolio. 

The course is open to candidates from a wide range of backgrounds and for further information please contact me at

UCLan are pleased to inform prospective students of some major changes to the delivery of the MSc Football Science & Rehabilitation programme from September 2020. In addition to the taught mode of delivery we are aiming to offer the programme as both a one year full time & two year part time on-line ELearn option. This mode of delivery will be aimed at both UK & International students who prefer to work from home without the need to attend face to face session on campus in the UK. This blended learning approach gives the student more flexibility to work at their own pace from anywhere in the world. It offers the opportunity to become independent autonomous learners but with reassurance & confidence that help is at hand from Course staff by way of skype, zoom, and teams. As we have in place already, there still remains an option for students to purchase a number of modules as standalone CPD modules & to study them at any given time. On successful completion the student will be awarded 20 M Level credits from UCLan. These can also be done via the option of the on-line ELearn. For further information please email me at


UCLan are pleased to announce the dates for the new academic year starting in September 2020 for the  MSc FOOTBALL SCIENCE & REHABILITATION.

The course is presently a two-year part-time degree taught in three day intensive teaching blocks. Potential students can choose to purchase individual modules as a standalone CPD module and gain 20 M Level credits per module as well as enrolling for the full MSc. We have an intake in both September and January of each academic year allowing greater flexibility for students.

We aim to continue with face to face teaching however we are already delivering a module this May in an on-line distance mode of delivery  due to Coronavirus issues. Plans are already in place to potentially present the whole programme via on-line teaching if the present situation remains. We will be updating things as and when we know more.

The MSc Football Science and Rehabilitation degree provides an intellectually challenging programme. The module content has been designed to provide a high quality education for those students aspiring to work in the field of Football, Medicine, Science and Rehabilitation. It has been developed in the light of discussions with clinical partners including the Football Medicine & Performance Association.

The programme has been structured to be delivered in short intensive blocks, with a strong emphasis on independent study, blended learning, Problem Based Learning (PBL) tasks and production of an evidence based portfolio.

The course is mainly taught in small groups. The seminars feature guest lecturers, which include well-known speakers in the field of football. Alongside this, the course is taught in an environment that encompasses lab based, gym based and field based activities that help you transition into the practical working environment.


UCLan are pleased to announce that from 2020 students can enrol on the MSc Football Science and Rehabilitation degree course from January as well as September. The two start dates provides maximum flexibility for new students who wish to complete the course alongside other commitments. In addition, individual modules can still be taken to form part of a CPD portfolio or credits towards the MSc degree. For further information please contact Mark Leather
