Sport and Exercise Science Foundation Degree Level 5

The Sport and Exercise Science Foundation Degree is a great way to progress from a Level 3 qualification, such as the Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science, to a university level programme.


The benefit of studying at college is that class sizes are smaller, so you can have a more personal experience, plus studying a degree qualification at a college costs less than university. The course is over 2 years and is equivalent to year 1 and year 2 of a degree. You will have the option to progress to Kingston University in your 3rd year to complete a full Bachelor of Science Degree.


Foundation Degrees are higher education qualifications which combine academic study with work-based learning. They provide a training pathway for those who would like to remain in work whilst studying for a higher education award.


This degree is validated by Kingston University.

UCAS applications for this course are open until September. This is a two year course and the price shown below is per annum.
