Upon graduation from this course, students will have developed their self-awareness and practical/transferable skills to enhance their employment opportunities. In addition, the teaching team will endeavour to assist students searching for suitable employment in the sector nationally and internationally. There will also be the opportunity for some graduates who want to do a PhD to do so in several specialist universities, both in Ireland and overseas.

Through the modules taught to you and the knowledge you will pick up from the season industry professionals who deliver this degree, you will put yourself amongst the names of the most-qualified and industry-ready people in clinical treatment and professional sport.
