Course description

How do people learn? What gets in the way of learning? Where might people learn best? Can education make a difference to human rights? These are just some of the big questions that our contemporary, issues-based Education Studies programme will examine. This course has been carefully designed to give you the â??biggerâ?? picture of education in a global society. Youâ??ll explore the effects of exercise on the body, looking at a range of physical activities in different social groups â?? from high level sport performers to young children. As the course progresses you may choose to specialise in a particular area.

Modules

Year 1: Sport and physical education; perspectives on learning; young people and physical activity; pupils, schools and society. Year 2: Learning through sport and physical education; inclusion and diversity; sports development, promotion and leadership; from vision to reality?; professional contexts; measuring and interpreting the world. Year 3: Measurement and evaluation in sport and exercise; a 21st Century curriculum; research techniques in sport; independent study; contemporary issues in sport and physical education; international dimensions; independent study; independent study/project.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
One of the fastest growing subjects in the country, the number of sports science graduates has gone from under 3,000 in 2003 to nearly 9,500 in 2012. However, the good news is the country's appetite for good health and fitness 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 and fitness, coaching and teaching especially, but they're found all over the economy. Management is also a popular option for graduates from this subject – after all, this is a degree for people who want to motivate others!

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
When you look at employment stats, bear in mind that a lot of students are already working in education when they take this type of course and are studying to help their career development. This means they already have jobs when they start their course, and a lot of graduates continue to study, whilst working, when they complete their courses. If your course is focused on early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not classed as 'graduate level' in the stats, but many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.
