BASRaT currently accredits a number of educational programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels at a variety of different educational institutions across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Programmes which gain BASRaT accreditation have demonstrated that the course includes the required module content and is suitably established to enable them to produce Graduate Sport Rehabilitators.

Once accredited with BASRaT, institutions are required to submit details of any programme changes on an annual basis through the Annual Review of Standards process. Every institution is also required to undergo BASRaT reaccreditation in line with their standard programme revalidation schedule. This process of programme re-validation is controlled by an institution's individual quality assurance team, the guidelines set out by external educational bodies such as the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) and at the discretion of the BASRaT Executive Committee.

In the event of BASRaT accreditation being removed from a course, current students who have already begun their studies would be able to apply to the BASRaT Registrar for membership while the course accreditation is progressively run out unless the course is subject to a provisional accreditation in which case bestowing graduate membership to cohorts is at the discretion of BASRaT.
