The primary way of delivering this course is on campus. On campus teaching includes a combination of lectures, small group seminars, workshops, guest lectures and one to one discussions with your tutor. On this course we also deliver industry relevant methods which include consultation practical based sessions that can be used within the Sport, Exercise and Coaching Science sector. Students will be assessed in a number of ways throughout the degree programme, including written assignments, presentations, exams, practical deliveries and practical consultations. Contact time for students are 1 day a week for BSc (honours) top up. This allows students to obtain work experience in the sector throughout the other days as well as conduct independent learning and assessment work. This also allows students to manage work and family commitments they may have during the course. Students will receive between 6 hours and 8.5 hours of teaching time per week throughout this course, depending on the modules being taken. Additional one-to-one meetings with tutors will provide further support. Students have the option to contact an additional support team to develop key study skills such as referencing and academic writing style. We have found this to be a very useful aspect of the course, especially for anyone who has had a break in education and is returning to studies, however the service is available for all students who attend the course.
