Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine in which conditions and during which classes do students of the Faculty of Kinesiology injure themselves. It was also important to find out the most common location of the injuries, the most frequent type of injuries and the effects of these on the continuity of the studies.
The sample of comprised 105 examinees (48 female and 57 male), all students of the Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Zagreb. They were at the end of the last year of studies. The examinees filled up a questionnaire. The average number of injures was 1.01 injury per student during the study. Artistic gymnastic, wrestling and judo had a very high injury rate, followed by the injuries that had occurred during training in free time. Male students had a highest injury rate then the female students. The most frequently injured areas of the body for female were the lower leg and the foot, while men were more prone to shoulder injuries. Ligament lesions were the most frequent. Many injuries did not affect the continuity of the study, however 25.76% of the injured students were forced to miss one year, and 4.55% two years of the programme.
