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 2021. We are delivering the programme as both a one year full time & two year part time on-line E-Learn (distance learning) only. 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 zoom, and Teams.

As we have in place already, there is still 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 for each module successfully completed. These are also done via the option of the on-line ELearn. For further information please email me at

We have an intake in both September and January of each academic year allowing greater flexibility for students.


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 units for each module, with a strong emphasis on independent study, blended learning, Problem Based Learning (PBL) tasks and production of an evidence- based portfolios and other ranges of assessments.

The course is mainly taught on-line with all content uploaded from the start for students to dip in and out and re-visit content and presentations, workshops etc as often as they wish. The seminars feature guest lecturers, which include well-known speakers in the field of football.
