Studying with us during coronavirus in 2021

Studying Sport

Learning from the cutting edge

We are ranked as the top university in London for Sports Science (The Complete University Guide, 2020).

Our courses are a unique blend of academic study and practical sessions, and offer you unique sports facilities at StoneX Stadium, including clinical teaching rooms, sport injury clinics and research labs.

Learn advanced skills for your career

There are a number of roles available once you’ve graduated from one of our Sports courses, from Performance Analyst to Rehab Assistant.

When designing our courses, we consulted with various sporting areas to ensure that we are delivering the key skills and experiences needed to be successful in employment.

Our staff are active sports professionals and we work closely with prestigious sports organisations like Tottenham Hotspur and Saracens Rugby Club, as well as local schools, sports clubs and youth centres, so you can build professional contacts while you study.

We're back on campus for teaching

Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you:

  • Your weekly lectures will be recorded so that you can watch them online at a time most convenient to you

  • You'll have access to one day a week personal tutoring to ensure that you fully understand the material and get any support you need
  • We're organising two days a week on campus, one day on our Hendon campus and one day at Stone X Stadium to maximise your commuting time but get the most out of your practical sessions

  • You'll have access to programme specific tools and materials to ensure that you can continue to work when not on campus for any reason

  • You'll have access to Miro board for interactive working and we'll continue to offer licences so we can offer lab training on a number of platforms such as Robot Studio, LabView, Fluidsim, Altium, TIA Portal and Learning Advantage. Many of these platforms integrate seamlessly with virtual and physical systems.

Confidence building placements

We encourage you to take a year-long placement between your second and third years, as this gives you the chance to develop your skills in a professional setting and explore interests you’d like to pursue when you graduate.

Previous students have taken placements at elite sports clubs, physiotherapy clinics and at charity events such as the London Marathon.

Our placements give you the chance to build industry links, apply your knowledge, develop practical skills and will boost your CV and chances of employment when you graduate.

We support you in gaining the employment skills you need, alongside the placements, so you graduate feeling confident and ready for the industry.

Evolving our teaching in the pandemic

We're designing our approach to teaching and learning for 2021 using student and staff feedback from the past year and evidence of what helped students learn best. This means we can incorporate some of the most successful innovations and new practices and make the most of your study time on campus and online.

Our team has risen to the occasion over the past year – supporting not only students but research into the pandemic. Our graduates have been working on the front line, supporting the NHS through the crisis. We’re proud of the work we have done within our community and we are taking what we have learnt forward, to continue to offer you the best education and preparation possible.
