Are you passionate about a career in the business and management of sport? This degree provides the opportunity to study in the workplace of a professional organisation in this sector, thus enhancing your employment opportunities. To study this degree you’ll need a formalised affiliation with a professional Sports club, through the English Football League Trust. As a result, this course is not available to EU or International applicants unless they are already living in the UK and affiliated to an EFL club. Lectures are produced by USW staff, but you study these materials remotely at your club's learning environment. You then attend USW up to 3-times per year for Residential Study Visits. You’re also assigned a Mentor from your club who facilitates your learning and supports the organisation of your weekly placement. A key part of this degree is the increased amount of placement hours you will experience. You will undertake 4-8 hours per week in year 1 and 7-14 hours per week in years 2 and 3. These experiences will mainly be working within the remit of your club and will give you practical experience of working within the sports business and management industry. You may also get a wider experience through opportunities at your club’s sponsors and partners. The BA (Hons) Sports Business and Management will prepare you to work in a multitude of sports business, management and leadership roles, instilling the skills that will allow you to work within a range of sports businesses. The nature of this degree where you are ‘learning on the job’, means you have 3-years to impress a potential future employer (your club), as well as impress any of their key partners or sponsors. You’ll have support in gaining regular placement opportunities, provided by your Club Mentor and an opportunity to reflect upon your development through termly meetings with an Academic Development Officer. These Officers are employed by the English Football League Trust, but are there to support our students development.
