Course Overview

This course is ideal for students with a level 5 qualification looking to top up from further education or transfer from another University.

You’ll examine the theory of physical education, sport and coaching science across education, leisure and community sectors – but there’s nothing virtual about this course, hands-on experience plays a big part.

Your academic learning will be intertwined with practical sessions in our purpose-built sports facilities.
