What’s it all about?

This course is part of the Sixth Form A-Level subject offer for students aged 16 and over who want to continue their education through applied learning and who aim to progress to higher education. Many of our graduates progress to undergraduate university courses in areas such as physiotherapy or sports science.

This course would be part of your 3 or 4 A level subject choices. If applicants would rather study Sport and Exercise Science without any other A level subjects then we also offer a Btec National Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science (3 A-Level equivalent).

You will need 5 GCSE's at grade 4-9 including Maths and English Language, PE or Science.
