Study a Sports Business and Entrepreneurship degree at Ashton Gate this September

This ground-breaking course provides three years of hands-on experience of setting up and running your own business alongside your studies.

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.

You will be based at Ashton Gate Stadium, with access to the stadium's impressive facilities, staff, coaching and networking. 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.

In the first few weeks you'll form a team company of up to 20 students, and work on real projects. There are no formal lectures; instead your team company will run its 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.

There are a limited places left on the programme starting in September 2020, and applications are currently being accepted through UCAS.
