    Hi, I'm currently in year 11 but will be going to sixth form in September, I need to make my choices as to what subjects I want to study. Some universities offer specific courses for sport education but others don't so I was wondering if anybody knew what sort of course would be accepted if I apply for a job in the future. Also any advice on what A levels to take relating to this would be appreciated, thanks! I Alia like the idea of living in London or another city like Birmingham or Manchester maybe? Has anybody had experience at Uni in any of these areas?

    Loughborough used to be the classic PE teacher place.

    Have you asked your PE teachers?

    I know brighton is good for teaching course related to pe...
    If you're going to do a BA in something like physical secondary education then they're not going to care which subjects you do but obviously if its relevant to teaching and pe then it will help - just do subjects you think you can get a good grade in

    Thank you 🙂 I will look into Brighton, I know that some universities like Brunel want either a science or maths in order to apply to the youth sport course, so I will look around to see about different entry requirements

    I did look at Loughborough but I think it's a bit too close to home for my liking, I have talked to some they said Bedford(also quite close to me) and Aberystwyth as well.

    tbh for teaching courses they don't care too much about the grades - its more about experience and you're willingness to the sector so most places will offer something in terms of ucas points which means you're under less pressure to ace the exams

    When I go to sixth form I'm planning on becoming a sports officer and doing a sports leader qualification, do you think that will help?

    My advice is loughborouh. I hear it's very nice. It won university of the year too.

    I know little about LJMU but I've been in liverpool and i thought it was a **** hole. Maybe the actual uni is ok but it wouldn't be enough for me to stay in Liverpool

    Thank you, I think I should maybe consider Loughborough even though it's so close to home because it sounds so good
