in terms of A levels these two subjects would look attractive to a university (along with a third a level of your choice)
My name is Ailish and I am in my final year of BSc Sport Development and Coaching Sciences at Bournemouth University. I saw you are interested in studying Sport Science at University and so thought I'd give you some information about the amazing Sport Courses offered here in Bournemouth...
Bournemouth offers a number of Sport courses, including:
- BSc Sport Development & Coaching Sciences
- BSc Sport Psychology and Coaching Sciences
- BSc Sport Management
The Sport courses at BU really stand out since the subject areas that you cover are so varied and so closely aligned to what industry professionals are seeking from Sport Graduates today.
The topics covered in your first year begin very broad, allowing for your own specialisation by final year. In my final year I have chosen to go down the Marketing & Communications and Professionalism and Leadership route however am also undertaking a unit in Performance Analysis at the moment and will soon be filming an athlete in order to conduct video analysis and provide feedback - the variety in study always keeps the course interesting and engaging!
Moreover, BU offers an invaluable Placement year, following your first two years of academic study. I have just returned from my placement and had an absolutely amazing time, learning skills and meeting people that will better prepare me for the world of work upon graduation.
Furthermore there are opportunities to study abroad in year 2 or 4 of study which will look fantastic on your CV. I have chosen to embark on my final semester next April at Cologne Sport University in Germany - one of the most renowned in Europe!
Ultimately, the opportunities are endless at BU
If you have any questions about anything Bournemouth or Sport related, please do just give me a shout!
Hope your studies are going well!
