Oxford Brookes University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This course is designed to prepare you for a career in the sports industry. It aims to assist in developing knowledge and understanding of coaching fitness and rehabilitation through work experience and other underpinning features, such as physiology, principles of fitness, coaching theory, and practical experience of rehabilitation. Application of theory to practical situations within a sports context is a key aspect of this programme featuring strongly in the work experience module, which awards academic credit. While there is no requirement to purchase specific sports kit, practical sessions will require appropriate sportswear. In addition to the foundation degree, students will have the opportunity to complete additional qualifications including fitness instruction, personal training, sports massage, sports injuries and sport coaching.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
