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
