You can move on to sport science, biomechanics, health or exercise-based degree programmes such as FdSc/BSc (Hons) Sport, Health and Exercise.

Requirements

A sufficient standard of Numeracy and English Language is needed to cope with the demands of the course. We strongly advise you to have a GCSE in English language and maths at grade C or above as the majority of university providers will require this.

All students will undertake diagnostic assessment to assess these skills during the course interview or induction process and you will be required to demonstrate that you can work at level 2 in these subject areas. Students may be able to study for one GCSE in either English Language or maths alongside the Access course. This will be discussed during the Access interview process.

Progression

You can move on to sport science, biomechanics, health or exercise-based degree programmes such as FdSc/BSc (Hons) Sport, Health and Exercise.
