This course has a blend of academic and practical elements combining to produce well-rounded graduates who are ready for the world of work. You’ll gain varied practical experience throughout your course thanks to your 30-week work placement. The course covers all aspects of sport, management and business, something that many graduates lack according to our contacts in the industry.
We have developed an international reputation in a number of fields, and continue to shape sport research and practice. We undertake a range of collaborative projects with partners in, for example, the USA, Brazil, Germany, Italy, South Africa, China and Australia. Similarly, we provide opportunities for you to engage in educational, research and work activities with our global partner institutions.
Former students have gone on to work for the likes of Manchester United FC, AFC Bournemouth, DC Leisure, Fitness First, The Kia Oval Cricket Club, British Ski and Wake Board, Open Golf Championship and Messe Frankfurt, among many others. Job roles undertaken by graduates have been wide ranging including posts as Events Co-ordinator, Project Management and within Marketing & PR. 85% of our students are working or studying 6 months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2018).
Undergraduate students who will successfully complete the Digital Marketing unit have the opportunity to achieve the IDM qualification level 4 Certificate in Digital Marketing, as a result of exemptions awarded by the IDM for the Digital Marketing unit.
