Course description

Foundation Degree (FdSc) Sports Coaching, Fitness and Rehabilitation

The FdSc Sports Coaching, Fitness and Rehabilitation programme provides opportunities for students to achieve the learning outcomes using a range of different learning experiences.

You will be able to develop your knowledge, skills and confidence in your capabilities throughout the two years. 25% of all learning will be work related and this includes a work-based learning module in the second year. Where and when ever possible all learning will be based on practical scenarios and real life situations. Many of the modules in the second year will link into your work-based learning experience.

Work experience is a key factor in this course and students are encouraged to organise a placement that meets their interests and skills. The experience, including the personal and professional development you acquire during the voluntary work, will be captured and awarded academic credit through the assessment of the work-related learning module.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Each application will be considered on an individual basis following the University principle of widening access to those who might not have the traditional academic entry criteria to degree level awards.

  • a minimum of the equivalent of two years’ full-time relevant work experience and a current role in an appropriate workplace setting
  • evidence of ability to study at academic Level 4
  • evidence of support from their employer and recommendation;
