This degree is awarded by Oxford Brookes University.
The Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching, Fitness and Rehabilitation is designed to prepare students for a career in the sports industry.
This FdSc is designed to prepare you for a career in the sports industry. It aims to assist in developing knowledge and understanding of coaching fitness and rehabilitation through work experience and other underpinning features, such as physiology, principles of fitness, coaching theory, and practical experience of rehabilitation. Application of theory to practical situations within a sports context is a key aspect of this programme featuring strongly in the work experience module, which awards academic credit. While there is no requirement to purchase specific sports kit, practical sessions will require appropriate sportswear.
In addition to the foundation degree, students will have the opportunity to complete additional qualifications including fitness instruction, personal training, sports massage, sports injuries and sport coaching.
Concentrating on the three key disciplines of sports coaching, fitness and rehabilitation, the programme recognises the need for an interdisciplinary approach to help maximise future employment potential and will help you develop and sustain a career in the field, or specialise in postgraduate study. Work-based learning is a key component of this programme, and provides opportunities to apply theory in practice in a sports context. You will be awarded academic credit through the assessment of the work-based learning module. As a student of both City of Oxford College and Oxford Brookes University, you will have access to facilities and resources from both institutions to support your studies.
