Course summary

We are offering eleven of our sport degrees with an integrated foundation year. If you don't have the required UCAS points to be able to secure a place on one of our sports degree programmes, the foundation year will prepare you for academic life at our University. During the foundation year, you will study four sport-related modules. These will introduce you to the subjects included on each of our nine routes, from sport development and social sciences to coaching and lifelong health. Two additional modules will develop the academic and study skills needed to successfully transition from school or the workplace to higher education and on to your full degree programme. During your second, third and fourth years you will study an average of six modules each year. Visit each of the course pages at www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk for details of the modules offered as part of your chosen course.
