You'll study a combination of theoretical and practical modules, covering themes such as psychology, sociology, sport science, pedagogy and philosophy. This is a practical and vocational degree, so you'll apply your learning to games, athletics, outdoor adventurous activities, gymnastics and dance.
Gaining professional experience is crucial, so we'll give you plenty of opportunities to put theory into practice throughout your degree. You'll complete two professional work placements in a sports setting of your choice, which could be in the UK or abroad. Some of our Sports and Physical Education students work with Cricket Without Boundaries in Rwanda.
At the end of your first year you can continue with Physical Education or transfer to Sports Coaching or Physical Education and Sports Coaching.
You'll have the flexibility to specialise in the areas of physical education that interest you, tailoring your knowledge and experience to suit your career aspirations.
By the time you graduate, you'll be prepared for a potential career in teaching via a PGCE, as well as a range of other careers in physical education and sport.
