Learning, Teaching and Assessment
The MA in Sport Management is to be run both full time (one year) or part time (two years) one (part time) or two evenings (full time) per week. Students would have access to a relevant vocational setting in order to carry out the applied professional practice components of the course (support being offered to those students without such a placement upon enrolment).
The rest of the study would be completed at home and online with the support of tutors and a peer network.
A range of assessment methods are used throughout the course, giving students the opportunity to draw on their professional experience as well as their academic learning.
These include formal written essays, case study reports, physical activity interventions, research proposal, research critique, cost-benefit evaluations, reflective portfolio, on-line seminars and a major research project (dissertation).
Assessment titles are written to enable students to focus on their areas of specific work interest.
Additional support in the form of on-line tutorials, and one-to-one support is provided to ensure all students, from all backgrounds, are able to develop the skills needed to successfully complete assessments at Masters level.
A good (2:2 or above) BA or BSc degree in a relevant area.
People with degrees in non-related subjects will also be considered, if they can demonstrate relevant paid or voluntary work experience and a commitment to study. Additionally, candidates without a BA/BSc may be considered where they can demonstrate evidence of equivalent prior learning and experience through Leeds Trinity assessment of APL.
