Ran in partnership with the University of the West of England this BA (Hons) Sports Business and Entrepreneurship course is a radically different degree for those looking to study entrepreneurship in a leading sports business environment.

The course is based at Ashton Gate Stadium, where students have access to the stadium's impressive facilities, staff, coaching and networking. In addition to this, students will have the opportunity to learn from and be inspired by the real-life experiences of professionals from a wide variety of sporting and non-sporting backgrounds, including: Bristol City, Bristol Bears, Bristol Flyers, Bristol Sport, as well as many other businesses and social entrepreneurs.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE SPORTS BUSINESS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP COURSE? 

In the first couple of weeks as a Sports Business and Entrepreneur you will form a team company of up to 20 fellow students and get to work on real world projects.

There are no formal lectures; instead you will run your own training sessions with support from an experienced team coach.

You will also have access to mentors and other professionals, as well as internal opportunities and academic workshops that support you to build the knowledge and expertise needed to develop your entrepreneurial potential.

Throughout the course, you will provide evidence of how you have learnt from your projects and your study. You will work within your own team company, supported by your team coach, to share and develop your learning.

This course is particularly relevant if you're looking for a practical, hands-on approach, and the chance to take charge of your own studies, with the possibility of earning your own income alongside gaining invaluable experience.

This applied course prepares you for work in the same way a graduate development programme does, ensuring you will be a: confident, motivated and resilient graduate. You will know your strengths, interests and aspirations.

You will graduate with diverse and exciting career options. You could set up your own business-related venture or apply what you've learnt to work for another organisation.
