The Foundation Year offers an innovative new pathway into your degree. It is the first part of a four-year degree programme. It provides an alternative route for those unable to meet the traditional entry requirements for a three-year degree. It will prepare you for your degree studies in a supportive and stimulating learning environment. Why study this course?

  • This course provides students with exposure to and experience of working with young people in educational settings, and opportunities to develop skills in effective teaching and learning which are built upon throughout the course.
  • Learning opportunities prepare students for careers in educational settings, especially for postgraduate routes into teaching (esp. physical education), and the learning experiences provided are informed by relevant professional bodies (e.g., Association of Physical Education [AfPE]) and government departments (e.g. Department for Education), to help prepare students for the requirements and standards expected of teachers.
  • Through taught modules (e.g., through study visits) and the second year work placement module, students are provided with opportunities to apply their learning
  • In the final year students are provided with the option to undertake a research-based dissertation or a negotiated Work-Based Research Project. This opportunity for choice will further enable students for their chosen destination routes following graduation.
  • Students receive a broad foundation of modules in their first year. This structure is unique in that it allows students the flexibility to change course and progress straight into the second year of another sports programme if they wish to.
  • The course is taught in dedicated facilities on one campus. The Human performance lab, indoor sports hall, strength & conditioning suite, aerobic conditioning suite, group exercise studio, full size outdoor 3G pitch, dedicated seminar rooms and staff offices can be found within a 100 yard radius of each other.
