Sports Studies and Business (International only - September)

Would you like to improve your English language and academic skills before progressing onto a full undergraduate degree programme? This course aims to fully prepare those who speak English as a second language for full-time study on one of Southampton Solent University’s specialist degree programmes. Part of a range of extended degree programmes for students whose first language is not English, this foundation year helps learners to reach a standard broadly equivalent to IELTS 6.0 overall (with a minimum of IELTS 5.5 in each language skill component) before starting undergraduate studies. Using our multimedia facilities and language centre, students will have the chance to tailor their English language studies to suit the subject they will later study at degree level. Solent University is proud to offer students a supportive learning environment. Face to face academic support is complemented by 24/7 access to our virtual learning environment. Students also benefit from access to our dedicated language centre, which offers a range of interactive resources designed to aid second language study. Thinking of studying for a degree here in the UK? This foundation year will help you transition into academic life as smoothly as possible, improving your language, research and communication skills as you begin to learn about your chosen subject area. Successful completion of the International foundation year will provide a pathway to the Sports Studies and Business degree. If you love sport and want to bring this passion to the business side of the industry, Southampton Solent University’s innovative sports studies and business degree will help develop your skills, knowledge and business acumen to begin your career. This innovative degree focuses on the business of the sports industry. Students will study subjects such as marketing, law and finance alongside sport development, coaching and research, giving them the industry knowledge and skill to pursue a career in the business of running a sports club or similar organisation. The experienced course team’s established local and national industry links has provided previous students the opportunity for valuable work experience in the industry. Past students have also benefitted from talks delivered by guest lecturers, giving insight around current issues in the industry to help build students’ knowledge. To complement their degree studies and help to boost employability, students have also previously been encouraged to gain valuable work experience by studying for an NGB coaching qualification. Students who love participating in sport can join one of the University’s many sports clubs for track, field or water. Elite athletes can benefit from the University’s High Performance Academy where they will receive mentoring, one-to-one strength and conditioning training and high performance sport support lectures.
