BSc (Hons) Sports Studies top-up

Study in a professional sports club-style environment. Work with elite athletes as part of our Sports Academy. Benefit from our connections with major sports clubs and governing bodies.

One year full-time (Part-time options available)

Designed as a qualification to build on students’ previous Foundation degree level education, the BSc (Hons) Sports Studies top-up allows students to tailor their degree to their own interests, selecting the modules that are relevant to the area of the sports industry they want to explore. While each student’s journey will, therefore, be very different, there will be a clear focus on future employment as students are supported to identify their future career path and develop clear plans for their future.

You will study core modules that will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to complete a research project on a topic you choose as well as to develop a portfolio that will help you stand out from the crowd when you’re starting out on a career in your chosen industry.

You’ll also be able to choose from a range of optional modules and projects relevant to your chosen career path. These have previously included sports education, sports coaching, sport psychology, the business industry and sports therapy and strength and conditioning.

Teaching will consist of a stimulating mixture of formal lectures, academic expertise, group seminars and practical sessions with opportunities to access Hartpury’s outstanding on-site sports facilities and resources.

Seminars and workshops are interactive and can involve hypothetical problem solving and case studies. You will be expected to prepare for sessions by conducting research around identified subject areas, while your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and be available to you for advice and guidance.
