The course was developed following discussion with specific organisations including UK Sport, Sport England, Sports Coach UK, the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity, and National Governing Bodies.As well as the placement year, you will develop your skills in coaching, development and management environments. You will graduate with an academic degree, a range of specific professional experiences and the key personal skills required to excel in employment.
Links have been developed with a number of key partners for example the Club Managers Association of Europe, the RFU and Dorset FA. You will benefit from an increasing numbers of guest lectures from companies such as FIFA. Other links exist with England Athletics, Wessex Volleyball, Southampton FC, and AFC Bournemouth.
We have also developed international links with visiting academics (University of Florida), guest lectures (Heidelberg, Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen), and collaborative research activity (such as those with University of Western Sydney, Murray State University, USA, The Tourism Institute, Macau, University College, Florida, Victoria University, and the University of South Australia).
The number of graduates entering the sporting industry is increasing. Potential employers are increasingly looking towards vocational expertise and experience to compliment academic qualifications. Our course is specifically designed to address this issue with the third year of the course being spent on an industrial placement in the sporting industry. This placement will give you the opportunity to gain the industrial experience and relevant sporting skills that employers are seeking from todays graduates.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
