The School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences is housed in the Essex Sport Arena on Colchester campus.
Equipped with a range of health and fitness analysis technology, the Arena brings together education, rehabilitation, exercise and research, with facilities ranging from a sports hall the size of three basketball courts to dedicated laboratories for research and a state of the art Sports Therapy clinic.
We have three dedicated labs for physiotherapy which will be refurbished over summer 2019.
Our large lab spaces provide flexibility for small and large group practical skills training. They contain all the equipment and facilities you need to train as a physiotherapist, including a dedicated neurological and cardiorespiratory rehabilitation space.
When not used for timetabled teaching, the labs are available to students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Sports Therapy is, by nature, a practical profession and therefore a large proportion of the programme is taught in a practical fashion.
Our excellent facilities allow students to learn and practice in an environment specifically designed for sports therapy practice. Our labs and clinic are fully equipped to ensure students are exposed to and are able to freely practice with a wide variety of equipment one could expect to find in any professional clinic or sporting organisation.
We have two dedicated labs for sports therapy training and a sports therapy clinic.
We have 6 specialist labs in the old building:
We have a large range of equipment across our Sports Science laboratories:
