Course summary

The global sports market is estimated to be worth between £400 and £500 billion, and is growing at a significant rate year on year. Over the past decade, there has been a huge increase in career opportunities in the global sport sector that require graduates with the skills, attributes and experience to thrive in such a dynamic industry. This undergraduate course will provide the academic expertise needed to help students develop an exciting professional future. Combining theory and practical application, this course will draw heavily from practising sports leaders to cover multiple aspects such as technology and digital innovation, marketing, events, operations and analytics. Internships, placements, project fieldwork and workshops will enable students to start working towards their chosen career. All modules balance a range of relevant theory and concepts with practical application, and throughout the course students reflect on and apply this content into real-life scenarios – enabling them to enhance and critique their learning. In short, this is a course designed to be the catalyst for students to forge a successful career in the global sports industry. Professional Placement Year This course offers a professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, between the second and third years of your degree, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. The University will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. If you do not find a suitable placement, you will be automatically transferred back to the standard, non-placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year.
