Level 6 Masters Diploma in Advanced Sports Therapy

  • Level 6 at Active Health Group

    The Sports Therapy diploma has been around for almost 40 years, and has always been aimed at getting its graduates either into work in sport or in private practice.  The first Sports Therapy degree was set up in the mid 90’s, and heavily weighted in academia.  Indeed, Active Health Group has trained many degree graduates (of both Sports Therapy and Physiotherapy) who have decided to use our Level 5 & 6 courses as their ‘post-graduate’ training to gain the valuable hands-on soft tissue skills that we teach, and that are essential for this industry.

    Whilst experience has told us that you do not need a degree to work as a sports therapist, we understand that some people would like the challenge of undertaking a degree course.   For AHG graduates that want the traditional degree, Newcastle College offer a Top-up degree, which is one year in duration. As of 2017 the average cost of undertaking a full University Degree is £32,000.

    With a progression route in mind, we also developed our own, which is the Level 6 Masters Diploma in Clinical Sports Therapy.   Unlike traditional university degrees, our Level 6 is a hands-on vocational programme, which builds on the Level 5 Advanced Diploma and includes our highly regarded Diploma in Myofascial Release. The average time for completion of the AHG Level 6 is 2 years.

    Many of our graduates wish to continue with us for Professional Continued Development courses and we have been constantly asked about progression routes from our Level 5 Advanced Diploma.  Previously the traditional route has always been University.  Over the past 3 years we have been running a Level 6 course that encompasses all of the Level 5 modules, plus our Advanced Myofascial Training, Sport & Exercise Therapy, Clinical Massage and Advanced Electrotherapy.

    The level 6 at Active Health Group is truly unique, matching exclusive content, flexibility and cost effectiveness. This course has a maximum duration of 4 years from the time of enrolment. As this course is run in a modular format, the practical sessions are taken at any time throughout the year.

    For this course, you will need access to a computer and Internet for research purposes and we provide access to our online learning platform.

  • Curriculum & Prerequisites

    Level 6 Educational Criteria

    Level 6 qualifications recognise a specialist high level knowledge of an area of work or study to enable the use of an individual’s own ideas and research in response to complex problems and situations. Learning at this level involves the achievement of a high level of professional knowledge and is appropriate for people working as knowledge-based professionals or in professional management positions. Level 6 qualifications are at a level equivalent to Bachelor’s degrees with honours, graduate certificates and graduate diplomas.

    Whilst this is a vocational qualification it does require a great deal of higher level learning, including research methods and dissertation writing, as you would expect with a Degree level qualification.
