BA (Hons) Sports Business and Entrepreneurship 

This is a three-year programme run in partnership with University of the West of England. Our Sports Business Entrepreneurship Programme is very much “practice led” with teamwork and entrepreneurship being central to the programme. 

Students will be placed in a Team Company where they will support each other in their learning and undertake a variety of “projects” which will include real business ventures. 

This is a programme that 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 students real life business experience, allowing them to graduate with not only a qualification but the experience and skills required within the industry.

Further information can be found here.
