Students Staff


Athlete Scholar Award winner Matt Taylor talks about our course and his plans to train in physiotherapy.

Our School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences will open on 1 August 2017, bringing together the outstanding research and educational expertise in sports and exercise science, physiotherapy and sports therapy from our School of Biological Sciences and our School of Health and Human Sciences.

At Essex we believe that:

  • sport, exercise and rehabilitation are fundamental parts of wellbeing - we encourage all members of our community, whatever their experience, to participate in and enjoy sport
  • the science of sport, coaching, exercise and rehabilitation underpins sporting excellence - we use our research to support athletes at local, national, and international level

Undergraduate courses

We offer a range of undergraduate degrees, from physiotherapy to performance sport and coaching.

CPD and Masters
