About This Course

Train for a record-breaking career in sports participation, sports coaching, performance sport or sport and physical activity development at one of the UK’s best university sports facilities.

You’ll learn how to link theory with practice whilst enjoying the extensive sporting facilities at UEA. You will hone your skills as a development practitioner within the highly regarded School of Education and Lifelong Learning with an embedded placement and research experience as part of the course.

Overview

In your first year you’ll explore the key areas underpinning the study of physical education, sport and fitness, and sport and physical activity development. Through core modules in the areas of psychology, physiology, skill acquisition and health, you’ll discover factors influencing the performance, participation and development of individuals within physical education, sport and physical activity settings. You’ll also gain delivery-specific knowledge across a range of games activities.

We attract students from a range of academic backgrounds, so the module Academic and Professional Practice is designed to facilitate a smooth transition into higher education study for everyone, and will enable you to test out your preferences through voluntary work.

We operate a common suite of Year 1 modules in our Physical Education, Sport and Health cluster, which means you’ll have the opportunity to transfer to one of the following courses after Year 1:
• BSc Physical Education, Sport and Health
• BSc Physical Education
• BSc Physical Activity and Health

In your second and third years you’ll study a combination of compulsory and optional modules covering different aspects of the sport and physical activity development landscape.

In your final year you’ll also complete a research project under the supervision of a lecturer who’s actively engaged in research. This is a great opportunity to delve into an area you’re passionate about. You’ll get the chance to collect and analyse data, turning those findings into a substantial research report. This will help you demonstrate a wide range of applicable workplace skills.

You’ll also have the opportunity to pursue a range of nationally accredited coaching and officiating awards alongside the set curriculum. All of these will enhance your employability and widen your horizons.

We have support from an excellent careers adviser who will support you with your personal development and applications into relevant sector roles.
