How I'll learn
Throughout the programme, teaching and learning strategies adopted by tutors will acknowledge a range of learning styles. Students are encouraged to critically analyse concepts, theories and practice and how this is demonstrated in the applied field.
The modules will encourage students to demonstrate a thorough grasp of knowledge which is essential in order to practice safely and ensure competence. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their own research through a dissertation.
Learning is supported through close contact with a range of sport and fitness specialists, with access to dedicated facilities. It provides an opportunity for personally-focused learning.
