Subject

Sport and exercise sciences

**Train to teach physical education and sport on this extended degree and benefit from being at a London university that has fantastic sports facilities on site and sport-related work placements.**

Our extended physical education and sport degree starts with a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study. Following this, you study the same modules as our three-year course.

The main disciplines include sport psychology, sport and exercise physiology, sociology of sport, and sport policy and development. You'll explore the practical areas of the national curriculum for PE, including athletics, dance, games, gymnastics, outdoor and adventurous activities, and swimming.

This degree develops your contemporary knowledge and understanding of PE and sport, as well as relevant skills for a range of sport-related careers. The course is taught at Avery Hill Campus, home to our extensive sports facilities and most of our student sports activities.

**What you should know about this course:**
* This four-year degree is identical to the three-year course, but has a foundation year and lower entry requirements.

* If you have the ability but not the qualifications, this programme is your first step to graduation.

* The foundation year includes academic writing, computing skills, introduction to the subject and more.

Modules

All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.

Assessment methods

Irrespective of the nature of the teaching environment (i.e., classroom, dance studio, sports hall, field, etc.) a variety of student?centred teaching methods will complement tutor?led presentations in order to enhance students' learning.

These may include:

Student?led seminars
Peer?group teaching
Analysis of practical performance (live or via film footage)
Workshop presentations.
In these ways, students will apply their knowledge and understanding and develop skills associated with observation, analysis, problem solving, reflection and critical evaluation.

In addition to developing the skills necessary to demonstrate understanding through written examinations and assignments, students will also acquire the skills to be assessed through, for example:

Oral presentations
Portfolio tasks
Practical assessments
Film footage analysis
Report writing
Proposals
Case study.
This varied combination of assessments is designed to complement the teaching and learning strategies and support the philosophy of student?centered learning.

One of the fastest growing subjects in the country, the number of sports science graduates went from under 3,000 in 2003 to over 10,000 in 2013. Numbers have fallen slightly since 2015, but we still have over 9,000 graduates in the subject. However, the good news is the country's appetite for good health and fitness - and the adaptability of graduates in the subject - means that sports science grads are less likely than average to be out of work. Sports science graduates, not surprisingly, tend to get jobs in sport, fitness and health - coaching and teaching especially - but they're found all over the economy. Management and business are also popular options for graduates from this subject — and sports science graduates are particularly found where drive, determination and physical fitness are an advantage.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
