Alongside the formal qualification, this foundation degree embeds commercially-recognised qualifications such as CYQ awards in fitness instructing, personal training, circuit training, sports conditioning and opportunities to achieve a range of level 1 coaching qualifications as well as the level 2 award in coaching studies.

The industry-recognised qualifications make this course distinctive and provides the students with the opportunity to find direct employment that can be both employed and self-employment as part of large organisations.

Students will attend college three days a week and will have the opportunity to learn through a range of practical and classroom-based methods.

Our partner colleges offer excellent teaching and learning resources for sport and strong links with local sports organisations. This foundation degree integrates academic and work-based learning through close collaboration between programme providers and employers and based on successful partnerships which provide distinct advantages to learners.

Relationships include Sport Bedford, Bedford Borough leisure centres (Fusion), Kempston Rovers Football Club, Bedford Blues Rugby Club, Bedford Bulls Basketball and Bedfordshire cricket. Partnerships have been made between the sports departments at the colleges and the sports development units of their borough councils.

These relationships will widen the opportunities for learners on the higher education programme allowing them to gain access to local community events, courses, employers and voluntary work that will strengthen their vocational experiences while studying.

Entry requirements

A Foundation Degree will be of particular interest if you have completed a Modern Apprenticeship, vocational A levels, BTEC National or equivalent.

Foundation Degrees are also particularly suitable if you want to qualify while working.

2017/18 entry

UCAS has introduced a new tariff for courses starting from September 2017. This means the points you will be asked for are different to previous years but the grades you receive have not changed.

As a guideline, a typical offer would require you to obtain a UCAS tariff score of between 32-48 points, based on your level 3 studies.

Many students studying for foundation degrees come to us through work-based routes so you can apply for a foundation degree even if you don't have traditional academic qualifications.

We welcome applicants with relevant work experience.

Contact the Admissions Team for additional guidance on whether the qualifications you currently hold or are taking would be suitable for entry.
