Newman University, Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Newman University has developed an innovative foundation year for their social science degrees. The pre-degree year of this four year course, if passed, leads into the same study programme as the 3 year joint honours degree course in Sport Development and Coaching.
This foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.
Undertaking a degree in Sport Development and Coaching enables you to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and competencies required for establishing a career in sports related professions. At Newman you will examine the practical, professional and theoretical elements that influence sports and exercise performance and participation. As well as enhancing knowledge and experience of sports studies you will develop skills in communication, leadership, ICT, time management, organisation, critical thinking, presentation, problem solving, data handling and project management.
