Course summary

The Certificate in Higher Education (Cert HE) is a one-year stand-alone course and is designed for students who do not quite meet the entry criteria to go directly onto year 1 of a named degree. Applicants who apply for a degree but who do not meet, or are predicted to meet, the entry criteria will automatically be considered for a Cert HE providing the degree offers a Cert HE route.The Cert HE follows the same first year modules as the degree with the addition of a 10-credit core module called Enhancing Academic Success.This aims to develop subject specific study skills to help support you in terms of workload, and the requirement for independent learning. Module assessment depends on the course but includes tutorials, practical classes and workshops, as well as directed and independent study.You will study alongside students on year 1 of the degree and will progress onto year 2 with your classmates, providing you successfully complete the course.The strength and conditioning course will be primarily delivered at the USW Sport Park which has a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning centre as well as a large sports hall, teaching rooms, performance analysis suite, outdoor pitches, 3G and all weather surface. Students can also access the specialist anatomy, physiology and biomechanics suites at the University’s Glyntaff campus.Thanks to continued investment we have a new specialist centre for strength and conditioning with 12 lifting platforms and providing a high performance environment for aspiring athletes. Our full-size indoor 3G pitch is built to the Fifa Pro standard and World Rugby 22 standard. It will guarantee training all year round for our rugby, football and coaching students. We are the only university in England and Wales to offer this facility.Our facilities are regularly used by international professional teams, such as the Wales national football team and Cardiff City Football Club, as well as the touring New Zealand, South Africa and Australia rugby squads. This confirms the high quality of our equipment.
