Concentrating on the three key disciplines of sports coaching, fitness and rehabilitation, the programme will enable students to develop and sustain a career in the field, or go onto specialise in postgraduate study.
As a student of both City of Oxford College and Oxford Brookes University, students have access to both facilities and resources to support their studies. Students will also be eligible to play sport for Oxford Brookes University, including the much sought after MCCU cricket programme. The university is also a TASS (talented athlete scholarship scheme) accredited centre.
Skills and assessment
Throughout the programme, teaching and learning strategies adopted by tutors will acknowledge a range of learning styles and students are encouraged to critically analyse concepts, theories and practice and how this is demonstrated in the applied field.
The modules will encourage students to demonstrate a thorough grasp of knowledge which is essential in order to practice safely and ensure competence. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their own research through a dissertation.
Learning is supported through close contact with a range of sport and fitness specialists with access to dedicated facilities and provides an opportunity for personally-focused learning.
