University of East London has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
The impact of the 2012 Olympics and the rise in childhood obesity and other health problems means there’s probably never been a greater interest in the role that sport and exercise plays in people’s lives. So where better, then, to study the subject in depth than in London’s Olympic heartland and at a university which takes sport and its role in the community so seriously? It’s an exciting time to be involved in the sports industry. It’s growing and evolving as successive governments recognise the need for people to be active. Our course reflects this with its inclusive approach to sport and PE. We’ll ensure you’re ready to deliver physical education or work in a community setting to improve people’s lives, both during your degree and in your subsequent career. You’ll also explore ways of encouraging as many people as possible to throw themselves into sport and physical activity, particularly young people and those with disabilities.

We'll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible. The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, half of your assessment will be based on research coursework and a work placement.
