There’s probably never been a greater interest in the role that sport and exercise plays in people’s lives. This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in this area but you don’t meet the standard entry requirements. First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree. It’s an exciting time to be involved in the sports industry. It’s growing and evolving as successive governments recognise the need for people to be active. Our course reflects this with its inclusive approach to sport and PE. We’ll ensure you’re ready to deliver physical education or work in a community setting to improve people’s lives, both during your degree and in your subsequent career. This course is currently subject to validation.
