      How you will learn

      The teaching and learning environment offers students the opportunity to develop a multi-disciplinary understanding of Sports Science. Assessments are designed to reflect industry requirements including “live” projects, case studies and field based work. The industry linked assessments provide students with valuable experiences to enhance their employment opportunities with high levels of students’ achievement and student progression into the sports science industry employment or onto post graduate programmes. Active learning is a key component of the programme providing a more realistic (context-based) study and problem solving in learning; confronting students with “real” problems which may be encountered in the work place.
