Sport Studies

Our Sport Studies courses are some of the most popular in the college. Our students benefit from a fantastic sports centre, sports academies and close links with local clubs and have the opportunity to train as Sports Leaders alongside their main course.

The sport and leisure industry is one of the largest employers in the world and offers a wide range of career opportunities. Most people today are members of a sports club or attend a sporting event on a regular basis – which means a booming jobs market for you!

We offer a range of courses in Sport from Level 1 right through to Higher Education. Trips, residental activities and physical training form a large part of all our sports courses. At Level 3 you will be able to specialise in science, fitness or sports coaching.
