As part of your course, there is an expectation that you will source and carry out a work experience placement in a sports enviroment. We have over 200 links to employers which include opportunities to work in areas such as gym instructing / personal training, sports coaching, sports marketing, sports nutrition, PE teaching, sports massage and therapy, to name just a few.

In addition to your studies we provide volunteering opportunities working with the Disability Sport Yorkshire (DSY), First Steps Sports and Tigers Trust, amongst others. These volunteering opportunities can also lead to paid work and additional qualifications.

There are also opportunities to undertake relevant sports qualifications including Level 2 Gym Instructors, Level 3 Sports Massage, FA Level 1 Football Coaching and various specialist fitness qualifications such as indoor cycling, circuits and studio resistance.

We also hold annual study trips, which include:

  • International sports tour annually (Barcelona, Paris etc.)

You will get plenty of notice of these visits and trips so that you can save for them, although we try and keep them as cheap as possible. We have found that these activities enrich our students and your predecessors have all urged that we continue to provide a breadth of visits for you all. We are aware of the cost and so we will provide you with as much notice as possible and will always source the best deals. As part of the course students also take part in work experience / volunteering opportunities.

For selected programmes students will have the opportunity to participate in an Industry Placement. This will comprise of 315 hours of placement in an area linked to the selected programme of study. If this is the case, your course manager will contact you in due course to discuss further.
