Course summary

ABOUT THE COURSE

With 30 years’ experience in outdoor leisure, Solent University are experts at producing knowledgeable and industry ready adventure management graduates. Combining the practical elements of adventure sports management with essential business management skills, this programme is well suited to those who are looking to enter the sports tourism, leisure or outdoor entertainment industry.

The beginning of the course covers a range of topics and aims to give learners a broad knowledge of the industry. During the second year students are encouraged to explore their particular areas of interest through application to assessments and research projects. In the third year of study, students are able to specialise and pursue optional modules that relate to their desired career.

Students are also offered the opportunity to undertake flexible work placements before the end of year two, encouraging the development of real-world skills in a ‘live’ industry setting. This placement can also be carried out abroad, which is ideal for those considering employment overseas at the end of their degree.

What does this course lead to?

Recent students have gone on to become centre managers and senior instructors in a wide range of outdoor activity and pursuits organisations. A number of graduates have also set up successful businesses such as Rock and Sun climbing holidays.

Course graduates who have focused on coaching and education will be well placed to take their studies higher or have the potential to progress onto a PGCE for those interested in teaching.
