Overview In your first year you’ll explore the key areas underpinning the study of physical education, sport and fitness, and sport and physical activity development. Through core modules in the areas of psychology, physiology, skill acquisition and health, you’ll discover factors influencing the performance, participation and development of individuals within physical education, sport and physical activity settings. You’ll also gain delivery specific knowledge across a range of games activities. We attract students from a range of academic backgrounds, so the module Academic and Professional Practice is designed to facilitate a smooth transition into higher education study for everyone, and will enable you to test out your preferences through voluntary work. We operate a common suite of Year 1 modules in our Physical Education, Sport and Health cluster, which means you’ll have the opportunity to transfer to one of the following courses after Year 1: • BSc Physical Education, Sport and Health • BSc Physical Education • BSc Sports Development In your second and fourth years you’ll study a combination of compulsory and optional modules covering different aspects of the physical activity and health development landscape. In your final year you’ll also complete a research project under the supervision of a lecturer who’s actively engaged in research. This is a great opportunity to delve into an area you’re passionate about. You’ll get the chance to collect and analyse data and turn those findings into a substantial research report. This will help you demonstrate a wide range of applicable workplace skills. You’ll also have the opportunity to pursue a range of nationally accredited coaching and physical activator awards alongside the set curriculum. All of these will enhance your employability and broaden your horizons.
