Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science with Foundation Year provides students with an alternative route into the undergraduate degree programme if the entry requirements for the BSc cannot be met. The Foundation Year will develop academically confident “level 4 ready” students through the provision of a supportive learning environment at Foundation Level that nurtures the development of the theoretical knowledge, and academic and practical skills necessary to successfully study the BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science degree. This 4-year course will develop both a detailed understanding of the subject areas that underpin sport and exercise performance and relevant employability skills and competencies through the embedding of a cohesive blend of professional and academic skills and the provision of career support. There are also opportunities for volunteering and engaging in extra-curricular activities at university. Several of the modules in the foundation year are shared with other courses enabling you to learn about other subjects. If at the end of semester 1 you wish to change your specialism you can do so.
