A range of study methods are used including lectures, tutorials, assignments and practical work in the Sports Hall or on the Astro Turf Pitch. Students are encouraged to relate theory to practice at all stages. A period of work experience is an integral part of the course and placements are arranged within the sports industry. Visits are arranged to various events and other places of interest during the course.



This course is continuous and comprises assignments, written and practical tests, and work experience. There are no examinations and the workload will be evenly spread across the year.
