Course Overview

UCFB is a college of Bucks New University and this course is available to applicants from the UK, EU and EEA only.

This degree responds to the changing demands of physical education, combining both the practical and theoretical study of the techniques and skills involved in the teaching and learning of sport. You will develop the essential practical, organisational and self-reflective capabilities you need to be an effective sport leader and educator.

Students on this programme will fully explore the fundamentals of physical education and sport pedagogy, including applied practical skills, child development, pedagogical skills, sport policy and practice. Practical and academic studies analyse the effects of exercise on the body and undertake a range of physical activities experienced at different levels and ages of pupils.

This course is available with a Foundation Year. The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Module Map

This module map provides a list of the modules that make up your course.

Each module is worth a specified number of credits (typically either 15 or 30 credits for undergraduate courses). Compulsory (or ‘core’) modules cover key subject knowledge, while ‘option’ modules enable you to develop your own interests. For a full-time course you must take modules worth a total of 120 credits at each level of the course. The number of option modules you can take depends on the number of compulsory modules at each level. You can find more information about how your course is structured via the Academic Advice pages.

Our teaching is informed by research and employer requirements, and modules change periodically to reflect developments in the subject area. In addition, where we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an option module, this may not be offered. If an option module does not run, we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative module.
