What’s New in Sport @ ATU Donegal – Donegal Daily

As the CAO’s July 1 ‘Change of Mind’ deadline nears, ATU Donegal is inviting applicants to consider the new sports programs starting in September 2022.

Instructor Neil Barrett tells us more:

ATU Donegal’s Department of Tourism and Sports has been providing exciting and innovative sports programs for almost two decades. The department currently offers a range of part-time, full-time and postgraduate programs in sport and attracts students from across Ireland and abroad.

The department recently launched two new CAO programs for September 2022 entry. These programs are now available for selection on the CAO Change of Mind platform.

  • BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy and Exercise Rehabilitation (CAO code: LY338)
  • BSc in Sport and Exercise (CAO code: LY347)

These programs were developed to meet the growing need for highly qualified sports professionals in the sports industry.

BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy and Exercise Rehabilitation – CAO code: LY338

The new Level 8 four-year Honors degree in Sports Therapy and Exercise Rehabilitation is a program that equips learners with the knowledge and clinical skills to successfully diagnose, treat, and manage injuries in elite athletes, recreational athletes, and the general public. Sport and exercise are critical to health and performance and there is a great demand for graduates with the ability to provide rehabilitation at all levels of sport and physical activity. The program provides training in modern diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.

The first two years of the honors degree form the core foundation of the degree, including anatomy, physiology and musculoskeletal assessment, while the last two years develop clinical skills through student-led clinics, an internship and a clinical research project. This exciting new CAO program is now available on the CAO Change of Mind platform. Further program details can be found here:

BSc in Sport & Exercise – CAO Code: LY347

This exciting new three-level 7-level bachelor’s degree replaces the previous Level 6 Higher Certificate in Sports Studies. The three-year course aims to provide students with a solid foundation in the disciplines of performance, health and well-being. Topics such as coaching, sports and exercise nutrition, leadership and technology are covered in this program. The modules are taught in a practical way and the students benefit from this recognized degree in the discipline of sports.

This program is intended to prepare students for the world of work in sports. In the final year of the program, students can complete an internship, which gives the student a good insight into the career path the graduate wants to pursue. More course information can be found at:
