1.0year

Full-time | 2020

Validated by the Open University, this new, one year BA (Hons) top-up degree in Sports Management is an exciting new programme. Students will study modules which allow them to develop a broad understanding of management (shared with students on the other management pathways of Business and Events), whilst taking specialist modules which focus on sports management.

This course aims to develop multi-skilled and resourceful graduates who have developed detailed specialist knowledge and a broad ranging understanding of the global, national, regional and local sports management environment. Graduates will be aware of the impact of management decisions and have a variety of skills to enable them to function within the sporting industry.

The course year comprises of two semesters. In the first semester (September to January), students will study three, 20 credit core modules.  In the second semester (January to May) students will study one 20 credit module and a 40 credit final major project. Some lectures and other sessions with be shared with students studying on other pathways (BA (Hons) Top-up courses in Business Management and Events Management) which will contextualise and strengthen learning.

Students can expect to spend approx. 15 hours per week in structured study, spending a maximum of 3 days per week in college. Students are expected to spend a similar amount of time in self-directed study. Please note that study days and timetables will be confirmed over the summer and will be made available to applicants as soon as possible.

You will be taught by staff who have extensive experience and/or who are currently working professionally in their area of business, as a well as educationally by lecturers, thus combining theory and practice in order to develop a deeper awareness of the current sector, its trends and professional requirements. 

The course aims to equip students for further academic study, so you would be well placed to progress onto a Masters level course at higher education institutions offering research/taught degree programmes.
