Course summary

The BSc (Hons) degree course in Health, Physical Activity and Sport (HPAS) is an innovative, multidisciplinary course, which seeks to enhance the skills and expertise of those wishing to further their careers in a range of organisations in the fields of health promotion, education, fitness, physical activity, physical education (PE), and sport. The course will also appeal to those with an active involvement in working with young people in formal and informal settings and also provides opportunities to proceed to post-graduate courses in education, health promotion, sport science, sports development and sports coaching.Opened in 2007, Orchard Building provides state of the art facilities for HPAS students. Facilities include a sports hall, dance studio, exercise laboratory, fitness suite and seminar rooms providing excellent facilities to deliver the course in comfortable surroundings.The team of lecturers is drawn from a range of backgrounds - physical education, sports development, health promotion and leisure management. The staff team is also supported by a Course Consultative Committee which includes representatives from industry to advise on the content of the degree. In order to allow students to build on the skills, knowledge and expertise which they have already developed before entering the course, the staff provide a supportive and flexible approach to the modules. Key Skills are also developed throughout the modules, during all three years of the course. The importance of information and communication technologies (ICT) is acknowledged through workshops which are available to students in addition to the degree modules.As students gain confidence and expertise, Years 2 and 3 of the course require greater amounts of self-directed study accompanied by project work as well as a research-based project (Dissertation) in Year 3. This approach will facilitate the development of effective practitioners.A recent development in the College is the introduction of the Student Communication Centre which is staffed by students and provides advice and support in relation to the skills needed for students to fulfil their potential at undergraduate level.
