How you learn The course is suitable if you don't meet the entry requirements for our BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Technology course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other sport foundation students, then move on to the degree. You're taught by staff accredited by the British Association for Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and other relevant professional bodies. This means you benefit from the most up-to-date knowledge on sport and exercise science, underpinned by the highest standards of applied work, research and teaching practices. In the foundation year, you build your Sport and Exercise Science interest and knowledge alongside developing your academic skills. You receive face-to-face feedback regularly during your modules in order to prepare you for the completion of your assignments. This will be via tasks set for you to undertake in the module seminars or in your independent study time. Applied learning Work placements A mandatory six-week (minimum) placement in an appropriate workplace is a significant component of the course, providing you the opportunity to apply theory to professional practice and further enhance your employability and professional skills. Previous students have worked as strength and conditioning coaches, applied sports scientists, cardiac rehabilitation assistants, physical activity referral specialists and performance analysts for a professional sports team. You'll also be provided with a significant number of opportunities to undertake additional placements, internships and volunteer roles, across a range of activities. We currently have several internship schemes running with professional sports teams including Sheffield Wednesday FC, Sheffield United FC, Rotherham Titans RFC, and Wakefield Trinity Wild Cats. Live projects Through our partnerships with major sporting bodies, students have had once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to volunteer at international sporting events, such as the Olympics, the Commonwealth Games, the World Cup and the Tour de France.
