The Division of Physiotherapy and Sports Therapy recently staged its annual Sports Therapy Alumni Day.
The event opened with a motivational talk from Division Leader, Karen May, on how to set up a sports therapy business.
Three of the Division's Alumni - Graham Theobald, Lewis Hiney and Ben Oliver - also came along to share their experiences since graduating.
Graham gave students a valuable insight into setting up a successful business, in addition to highlighting the importance of research and evidence-based practice for a sports therapist.
Lewis discussed working in a full-time professional sports club, and also explained how he set up his own business within three months of graduating. Ben highlighted the diverse nature of being a sports therapist, and the many employment opportunities available to students after graduation.
UCLan offers a range of services to final year students, which we recommend you utilise before graduating. Information presented at the event relating to postgraduate study and CPD training are available to view on Blackboard, under the 'Alumni Day' section in the BSc Sports Therapy homepage.
