Community sport development is one of the most vibrant and expanding areas of the sport and leisure industry. This course will develop students’ understanding of community development through sport in both a UK and international context. Particular focus is given to developing a critical awareness of the role of sport in delivering key social policy agendas. Students will be encouraged to analyse the use of sport in this context and consider innovative approaches when using sport as a community development vehicle. Through a varied and stimulating curriculum students will be provided with the professional skills and knowledge to work in this challenging field. The course will particularly appeal to those possessing an undergraduate degree in sports studies, sports development and sport and / or leisure management but will also be suitable to students from non-sport disciplines. Existing professionals in the sport and leisure industry can also enhance their qualifications through this course.
Students require a good honours degree (or equivalent) in which a major part of their studies has incorporated aspects of sports development, sports management, sports studies or related disciplines (e.g. sports coaching). Other graduates who can demonstrate a commitment to the study of sport and community development or who have significant experience in the sport and leisure industry will also be considered for entry. Students where English is not the first language need to demonstrate their ability in the English language through obtaining an IELTS score of 6.0 or above or equivalent.
