About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2019

The area of health and fitness for preventing and managing chronic diseases is expanding and is an area of employment with increasing opportunities. This one year top up will build upon the modules delivered as part of the Foundation degree in Strength & Conditioning for Fitness (or similar FDeg).
During the one year course of study students enhance their understanding of the industry through studying contemporary issues and analysing the market sector. Students will develop their skills through exposure to advanced training methods / techniques whilst being encouraged to reflect on the coaching practice in a work based setting. The course will also provide the student with the necessary skills to plan, design and conduct a research project specific to health, fitness, strength and conditioning.
The programme has excellent links with numerous fitness centres, sports clubs, governing bodies and organisations in the region to enable students to obtain the necessary experience they require to secure employment upon graduation. This is achieved by developing coaching, leadership and vocational experience alongside study whilst providing opportunities to apply for internships and additional qualifications. The programme will prepare students for postgraduate study and a wide array of health and fitness opportunities including activity leaders, fitness instructors, personal trainers and strength & conditioning coaches.
