We are looking for individuals who are aiming high and who are passionate about this industry and the way in which it plays a part in the lives of millions who identify with stadia and events.
Stadia represents major capital investment for most professional sports organisations and the increased utilisation of stadia is a major financial opportunity. Stadia are now seen as not just sports venues but as a venue for many activities outside of the sporting arena. This is your chance to develop your skills and expertise in this exciting arena.
UCAS CODE: 8N63
Most stadia are mainly used for circa 35 days per year for their core sporting activity. The challenge for your generation is to maximise stadium utilisation for the remaining 330 days a year. Wembley Stadium for example has hosted almost 200 events since 2007 through combining domestic and international matches with concerts featuring stars such as Robbie Williams and Bruce Springsteen, as well as hosting motorsports, NFL and rugby events. In this way an organisation’s assets are maximised to ensure sufficient financial returns to repay the capital outlays.
Teaching and Learning
Your course consists of a combination of structured learning and teaching activities and independent learning.
Structured learning activities include lectures, seminars, tutorials and other time-tabled sessions. The amount of time set aside for each activity (‘contact hours’) is set out in individual module descriptors and so will vary depending on the modules you take. When you are not attending structured learning and teaching activities you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically this will involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, using the library, preparing for seminars, and completing coursework assignments.
The programme specification will provide more information on the specific learning and teaching activities on this course.
Your overall workload will include your learning and teaching activities and independent learning with total study time of around 10 hours being worth 1 credit. While your actual contact hours will depend on any option modules you choose.
Year 1: 33 percent of your time is spent in timetabled teaching and learning activity
|Teaching, learning and assessment:||398 hours|
|Independent learning:||802 hours|
Year 2: 38 percent of your time is spent in timetabled teaching and learning activity
|Teaching, learning and assessment:||454 hours|
|Independent learning:||746 hours|
Year 3: 29 percent of your time is spent in timetabled teaching and learning activity
|Teaching, learning and assessment:||348 hours|
|Independent learning:||852 hours|
You will be given opportunities to test your understanding of the subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. This may take the form of practice or ‘formative’ assessments for which you will receive feedback from your tutor. Formative assessments are developmental and any marks you receive do not count towards your overall module mark. There is at least one formal or ‘summative’ assessment towards the end of each module. The marks from summative assessments do count towards your overall module mark.
Assessment methods vary, but your programme specification will provide more information on the specific methods used on this course. You can find out more about the assessment methods used across the University in the assessment guide on the Academic Advice pages.
Balance of assessment
The balance of assessment will vary depending on any option modules you choose.
Please note: The percentages below do not include any pass/fail elements as these do not contribute to the overall degree classification. All modules must be successfully completed for credit to be awarded.
|65 percent coursework||25 percent written exams||10 percent practical|
|85 percent coursework||0 percent written exams||15 percent practical|
|80 percent coursework||10 percent written exams||10 percent practical|
You will receive feedback on all assessed coursework and practical assignments and we aim to provide this within three weeks. Feedback on examinations is also available on request.
Assessment feedback is intended to help you learn and you are encouraged to discuss it with your module leader.
