What You Need to Know
We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
An Introduction to Your Modules
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
How you are assessed
The University of Lincoln’s Human Performance Centre offers excellent facilities to meet the academic needs of our students. The Centre provides first class sport and exercise support. Our experienced staff have academic and professional expertise in a range of areas including sport and exercise physiology, sports biomechanics, sports psychology, coach education, and sports nutrition.
Second-year students undertake a mandatory 10-week work placement providing strength and conditioning support to athletes. Students are encouraged to arrange placements independently, and tutors can provide support where needed. Students are also responsible for associated costs of placements, including accommodation, travel and general living costs.
Industry Partners and Work Experience
The course has strong links with a number of external partners, including British Orienteering, British Canoeing, Active Lincolnshire, Lincoln City Football Club, and Lincolnshire Cricket. Local partnerships with schools, community groups, and sports clubs provide additional opportunities for students to engage in relevant work experience. The School will cover all reasonable costs associated with work placements.
The College of Social Science’s Work Opportunities Hub is available to support students who are seeking to enhance their studies by engaging with a variety of work settings.
Graduates can progress to a range of careers in areas such as sport development, coaching, and fitness instruction, and graduate-level employment in the uniformed services. Some choose to go on to postgraduate study or teaching.
