Best Bachelor of Science Programs in Sport in Europe 2019

A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an academic degree that combines general coursework with specialized classes that prepare students with the knowledge and skills to begin a career. A degree can be earned in a variety of subjects and takes an average of four years to complete.

 

When studying sport, students usually choose between focusing on the business and strategic elements of sports or the physiological aspects. Those studying the former typically have the potential to coach or manage professional sports organizations while the latter aid in physical training.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

WHAT WILL I STUDY?

With the advent of lottery funding for sport in the UK, combined with the additional interest in sport following the Olympics, there has been an increasing need for graduates who have knowledge and skills in all aspects of sporting performance. Such graduates are required within all sports, as well as within equestrian sporting disciplines.

If you are passionate about all aspects of exercise and sporting performance including topics such as sports nutrition, peak performance, exercise physiology, gait analysis and sports injury, health, therapy and rehabilitation, then this is the course for you. The degree programme can either be studied purely academically as a three year programme or can be studied as a four year 'Sandwich' degree. If you choose the 'Sandwich' option, you will be required to undertake a minimum 48 week work placement (or two 24 week placements) in an area/s of your interest. The placement year is not mandatory but offers you an excellent opportunity to develop skills alongside your academic study, which will be recognised by future employers as a positive attribute.This course is validated in partnership with Coventry University....
