Our physical education and sport extended degree course starts with a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study. After your first year, you will study the same modules as on our three-year course. You will learn the principles of teaching and coaching, giving you the opportunity to flourish in your chosen specialism of athletics, gymnastics, swimming, dance or games.

The course is taught at Avery Hill Campus, home to our extensive sports facilities and where most of our student sports take place. Physical education placements form an integral part of this degree and our strong partnership with Charlton Athletic FC provides students with internship and employment opportunities.

Assessment method

Irrespective of the nature of the teaching environment (i.e., classroom, dance studio, sports hall, field, etc.) a variety of student‐centred teaching methods will complement tutor‐led presentations in order to enhance students' learning.

These may include:

Student‐led seminars
Peer‐group teaching
Analysis of practical performance (live or via film footage)
Workshop presentations.
In these ways, students will apply their knowledge and understanding and develop skills associated with observation, analysis, problem solving, reflection and critical evaluation.

In addition to developing the skills necessary to demonstrate understanding through written examinations and assignments, students will also acquire the skills to be assessed through, for example:

Oral presentations
Portfolio tasks
Practical assessments
Film footage analysis
Report writing
Proposals
Case study.
This varied combination of assessments is designed to complement the teaching and learning strategies and support the philosophy of student‐centered learning.
