Our Outdoor Adventure Education programme is designed to provide an academically rigorous and vocationally relevant degree. Principally, the programme is designed to integrate the practical and vocational skills necessary to work in the outdoor sector with strong academic understanding and appreciation of broader principles relating to fields of pedagogy, psychology, sociology, wellbeing and philosophy. Whilst the programme provides an ideal foundation for work within the field of outdoor adventure, it has also proven highly suitable for a range of other employment roles that are emerging within health, education and physical activity more generally.

The aim of the assessments are to enable students to demonstrate that they have met the aims of the programme and achieved the learning outcomes of each module. Given the practical nature of the programme, assessments are devised to maximise the link between theory and practice and allow students to demonstrate intellectual rigour and to reflect critically on their own experiences. A variety of formats are used for coursework and practical assessments, including: Portfolios Practical teaching/coaching Essays Journals Presentations Digital Media Blogs Academic interviews.
