We’ve developed this dynamic course following extensive consultation with numerous industry bodies, including Sport England, CIMSPA and various national governing bodies to make sure it's as relevant as possible to the ever-changing sports industry.
As a result, this course has a blend of academic and practical elements combining to produce well-rounded graduates who are ready for the world of work. The course covers all aspects of sport, management and business, something that many graduates lack according to our contacts in the industry.
You’ll gain varied practical experience throughout your course thanks to your 30-week work placement. Your work placement is more than just an opportunity to put your learning into practice – it provides you with a fantastic chance to make professional connections. You’ll also have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our many partner institutions across the world.
Undergraduate students who will successfully complete the Digital Marketing unit have the opportunity to achieve the IDM qualification level 4 Certificate in Digital Marketing, as a result of exemptions awarded by the IDM for the Digital Marketing unit.
90% of our final year students said they have been able to contact staff when they needed to. Join us on live chat now to find out more, or register to meet us at an Open Day.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement year. It has provided me with invaluable experience – working at a Premier League football club is a big thing at 21, and a label I am extremely proud to hold.” – Thomas Spring, 1st Team Player Recruitment Analyst at AFC Bournemouth
