Course summary

This course allows you to jointly study Sport and Mathematics, giving you a fully rounded experience of both subjects. During the study of Sport at BGU you will gain understanding in the complexities of this subject, including; the development of sport; how performance can be enhanced and how it can be managed and led. This course is designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of the sport, physical education, learning and teaching and education. Mathematics is vital in modern society, underpinning our understanding of the sciences, engineering, technology, finance and many other aspects of our everyday lives. Good mathematicians are in short supply and we aim to provide you with the tools you need to make a real difference in the world and to those around you.There is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching at BGU – we shape our methods to suit each subject and each group, combining the best aspects of traditional university teaching with innovative techniques to promote student participation and interactivity.You will be taught in a variety of ways, from lectures, tutorials and seminars, to practical workshops, coursework and work-based placements. Small group seminars and workshops will provide you with an opportunity to review issues raised in lectures, and you will be expected to carry out independent study.Placements are a key part of degree study at BGU. They provide an enriching learning experience for you to apply the skills and knowledge you will gain from your course and, in doing so, give valuable real-world experience to boost your career.We recognise that individuals come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, so we use a variety of assessment strategies on our courses.Over the course of your studies, you could expect your assessment to include presentations, multimedia reports, displays, portfolios, individual research projects, essays, exams and work in the Human Performance Laboratory. We recognise that individuals come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, and accordingly use a wide range of assessment strategies. You can expect to be guided and supported carefully in your first year, gradually becoming more independent as the course progresses. Theoretical aspects are usually assessed by coursework or examination, while the more practical modules are assessed by portfolio or presentation. Taught sessions mainly involve interactive-style seminars and workshops, during which you will often work with other students. This style of working offers informal assessment opportunities and will enable you to gauge your own progress and access help if required.In Sport, we prepare you for a broad range of sport-related jobs in such areas as sports development, adventure education, physical activity and health, sports coaching, fitness and recreation industry, school sports coordination, armed forces, youth work and postgraduate research. By the end of the course, you will have developed a range of practical and transferable skills that are underpinned by excellent subject knowledge, meaning you will be well-prepared for your chosen future career. In the past our graduates have begun careers as Sports Coaches, Personal Trainers, as Physical Education Teachers (Primary and Secondary), in the field of Youth Work or within Sports Development.Combining your study with Mathematics opens up a variety of other career possibilities. Graduates of this course are highly marketable individuals; mathematicians are in high demand! Most of our students apply to join our primary or secondary PGCE courses here at BGU, however, you could choose another career pathway such as Business and Finance, Science and Engineering, Research and Educational Management.
