Why study Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy?

The "complexity and range" of the Physiotherapy profession has grown beyond the limits of general Practice. Continuous professional development is now essential in order to guarantee a quality service and has become a professional responsibility.

This Master's aims to provide specialist training in physiotherapeutic needs and recovery of function in the world of sports competitions, both for elite athletes and beginners.

In their professional practice, an expert physiotherapist has to be, from a scientific perspective, flexible and capable of adapting to all sorts of changes. They also need to be prepared to survive in the complex world of healthcare and take the reins of their own professional development.  Consequently, this program is an opportunity to further specialise in sports as an area of professional development.

The training will be oriented towards providing efficient and effective healthcare, given that therapies are carried out with the aim of benefitting the patient and delivering results.

There is currently a high demand for labour in the sports physiotherapy market, as we are facing an increase in healthcare and sports practice. There is an ever-increasing culture of preventing and treating injuries caused by physical activity. As a result, this specialist course is taught in English to cover the existing need for physiotherapists who want to specialise in sports and also be able to work in English, thereby increasing the opportunities available to them as professionals. Graduates will be able to provide services to athletes who do not speak Spanish and increase their ability to get work from other countries in Europe, America and Asia, where demand is growing for physiotherapists who have trained and gained experience in Spain.

Professional practices

Internships in companies are a key element in your education. Acquiring experience and putting into practice what you have learned on your degree is the best way to enter the labor market. There are two types of internship, curricular (which are included as part of your program) and extracurricular (which you can do on a voluntary basis).

In order to carry out an internship in a company, you’ll need to have passed 50% of your credits and register before you start the internship. Both the company and a professor on your course will monitor your progress on the internship as well as providing an evaluation at the half way mark and upon completion. 

If you want to gain extra work experience before finalizing your university studies, you are welcome to carry out extracurricular internships. You can carry them out in whichever year of your studies you choose but we remind you that internships are formative and should complement your studies. The more theoretical knowledge you have acquired throughout your degree, the more you will benefit from the internships.
