Summary

This is a 1-year course contained within 4 days per week and, where possible, we try to timetable lessons to help support childcare and/or work commitments. This course is for mature students returning to education, or those wishing to pursue a different career route. This course is for people who want to gain a qualification recognised nationally as being appropriate for entering higher education studies across the breadth of sports career pathways. These progression opportunities would include health promotion, sports science laboratory work, coaching, sports development, sports therapy and sports teaching/lecturing. A range of Academic Subject Content units are delivered from the following categories: biology, sports science and psychology.

What do I need to join?

Applicants should already have secured a grade C/4 or above in both GCSE Maths and English to gain entry to the Access course. If applicants are currently studying GCSEs, they will need to have secured these (at a 4-grade minimum) by the course start date. Any applicants that believe they have GCSE equivalency should check with their university of choice to see if they meet their degree course entry requirements before making an application for Access. Relevant industry experience will be taken into consideration. An important part of the application for sport-related higher education degrees is based on experience. We therefore strongly recommend that all applicants who wish to pursue the Sport Science pathway on the Access course have/gain some relevant work, voluntary experience and/or NGB/sector-recognised qualifications.

How will I know how I am doing?

The course consists of 60 credits: 45 Academic Subject Content (ASC) graded at pass, merit or distinction, and 15 Academic Preparation Skills (APS). You will be set assignments to gain these credits throughout the academic year. These will involve essay writing, tests/exams, some practical experiments with written reports and presentations.

What can I do next?

Career opportunities Many universities accept successful Access learners on foundation degrees and HNDs.
