This degree is taught in Bristol, which has a long history of sport and is a vibrant student city. A cross-government strategy is trying to tackle head on the flat lining levels of sport participation and high levels of inactivity in this country. Through its strategy, the government is redefining what success in sport means, with a new focus on the five key outcomes: Physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing, individual development, social and community development and economic development. This degree has been designed to target these areas and with a broad range of physical activity and sport topics from which to study. We aim to equip students with the knowledge and skills to make positive contributions. Our School of Sport enjoys some of the best sporting facilities in the South West. These range from a FA Pitch, eight lane Olympic standard running track, fully sprung indoor sports hall seating up to 500 people, to a gymnasium with weights room. Our FdSc students are fully integrated within our sports departments and work with high performance athletes within our excellent facilities. Students have the opportunity to develop their teaching abilities, knowledge and experience of curriculum activities. Engagement in real-world experience is integral to this programme and students have opportunity to conduct research in sport environments and within the local community. SGS has an excellent reputation for its sporting facilities and students study in a supportive and friendly environment. Our staff have all practiced in the field and are experienced teachers. Teaching is delivered via a combination of practical and theoretical teaching methods, equipping students with a set of transferable skills to give them a substantial career advantage. The degree provides students with a contextualised and underpinning of physical education and fitness veering practical and theoretical elements to give a broad, yet applied experience. The Foundation Degree is a qualification in its own right and is the equivalent of the first 2 years of a degree. Most of our students will progress with us onto a one year top up course to complete their full degree.
