Outdoor Leadership (Top-Up)

This dynamic, experiential course is designed to allow students with an HND or Foundation Degree to consolidate and further develop those qualifications into a BA (Hons) Outdoor Leadership degree. It will give you the practical and managerial knowledge you need to be an effective outdoor leader, at the forefront of modern practice; as well as developing an in-depth understanding of the practical, theoretical and contemporary issues within Outdoor Leadership, you’ll get real world hands-on experience through five, week-long residentials throughout the academic year. To further boost your employability, you’ll be encouraged to take part in work experience opportunities during the summer. This course has been designed to thoroughly prepare you for a diverse range of career opportunities, from leading international expeditions, coaching and performance enhancement to sports management, public services and a wide range of roles within the outdoor leadership industry. Students and graduates have gone on to work in New Zealand, the Himalayas, USA and India, while others have opted to continue their studies or pursue research opportunities at postgraduate and master’s level. Our graduates are targeted by international, national and local employers, and work experience/internship opportunities are offered each year.
