Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in a program that focuses on sports science or sports medicine, or a in a similar program that focuses on physical exercise or health.

  • insufficient methodological knowledge of empirical social research;
  • insufficient knowledge of sports and exercise therapy for internal and neurological clinical pictures and damage;
  • insufficient knowledge of training-related therapeutic intervention for diseases and injuries of the locomotive system.

If the undergraduate program has not focused specifically on sports science (for example health studies, medicine or physiotherapy), students will have to prove their theoretical and practical knowledge of sports in practice, the basics of training and movement sciences and the basics of sports medicine/sports physiology, or they will have to compensate for the lack of knowledge if this is made a requirement by the examination board in Frankfurt.
