Mad about sports and fitness? Here’s an insider look at what studying a sports degree is like!
At the University of Bolton, we offer a range of sports degree courses, including sports coaching, sports rehabilitation and sports physiotherapy. Whichever field you want to get into, our dedicated sport, leisure, health and research centre, the £31 million Bolton One facility, is the perfect place to study.
You’ll also get to meet a lot of likeminded people, joining a vibrant and diverse community of sports enthusiasts. Here are some clues of what to expect when you come to our friendly and supportive campus…
That’s right, your time here will be highly practical, so don’t sit around and wait for things to happen. This is a get-up-and-go degree that will require energy and enthusiasm from students!
Within our School of Sport and Biological Sciences facility, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art equipment, giving you excellent hands-on training to prepare you for the workplace. And our Athlete Development Centre is where you’ll get to enjoy some of the best practical modules.
Our class sizes are smaller too, which means there will be a lot of interaction. As we always say to our students, “The more you put in, the more you’ll get out”. So we encourage you to make the most of these intimate programmes and collaborate, contribute and network as much as possible.
As well as studying in our fantastic sports centre, you will also get to gain invaluable industry training with some of the best employers in the field during your sports degree.
We value real-life skills that are developed in workplace environments, and offer placement opportunities through our vast network of contacts. This includes a number of professional sports teams, professional athletes, the NHS, private clinics and organisations within the voluntary sector.
Throughout your sports degree course, there will be a lot of focus on professional development, and our dedicated Employability Team is here to support your career ambitions by securing placements, providing CV writing advice, and much more.
You can discuss your career goals
Your goals matter to us, and that’s why our passionate lecturers provide one-to-one mentorship, to get to know you as an individual. This helps them tailor the programme to your specific needs, and they’ll work closely with you and carve a pathway to your dream job, whatever that may be.
Some career paths you could pursue include health promotion, outdoor activities or education management, physiotherapy, sports rehabilitation, sports and exercise psychology, strength and conditioning coaching, and teaching.
During your studies, you will get the chance to connect with top employers, gain real work experience and build your network. Our aim is to make your transition into working life as seamless as possible.
Not only will you get to impress potential future employers and get your name out there, but you’ll have a great support network on campus. And the best thing is, we put a lot of focus on inclusivity, creating equal opportunities for students of all ages, genders, and ethnic or religious backgrounds.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate community is vibrant and diverse, and we rank No.2 in the UK for Social Inclusion.* Plus, for the past three years, our students have voted us No.1 for Student Satisfaction in the North West**, making us a top place to study in the Greater Manchester area and beyond!
