What can you study?

Foundation Degree Community Football Coaching and Development

This two year programme - ran in partnership with the University of South Wales - provides students with a unique opportunity to develop their knowledge through studying a variety of football and sport-based modules, whilst also gaining practical experience through coaching placements with Bristol City Robins Foundation and Bristol City Football Club. The course also offers students the option to complete a third year BSc top up.

Foundation degree Sports Coaching and Development

Similar to our football specific coaching degree, this two year programme - ran in partnership with the University of South Wales - provides students with a unique opportunity to develop their knowledge through studying a variety of sport-based modules, whilst also gaining practical experience through coaching placements as part of Bristol City Robins Foundation and our partner organisations. The course also offers students the option to complete a third year BSc top up.

BA (Hons) Sports Business and Entrepreneurship 

This three year programme - ran in partnership with University of the West of England - is very much ‘practice led’, with teamwork and entrepreneurship both being central components of the programme. Students are placed in team companies where they undertake a variety of “projects” which will include real business ventures. 

The programme is ‘light’ on the formal delivery of knowledge through lectures etc., but ‘heavy’ on working in teams, self-managed learning and learning by doing.

The purpose of this course is to give you real life business experience to allow you to graduate with not only a qualification, but the experience and skills required within the industry.

To apply or for further information:

A Level and BTEC applicants can be accepted on to each course.
