Why Study Sport in the United Kingdom?

British Universities and Undergraduate Sport Programmes

There are 160 Universities in the United Kingdom, most of which offer courses with ‘sport’ in the title. Some will offer courses that allow students to study a breadth of disciplines related to Sport Science or Sport Studies, whereas others offer courses which enable you to specialise in particular areas of sport. At the University of Chichester, for example, you can choose from 20 different undergraduate programmes including ‘Adventure Education’, ‘Football Coaching and Performance’, ‘Physical Education and Sports Coaching’, ‘Sport Business and Management’, and ‘Sports Therapy’. At most British universities there are options to study sport-related degrees at Foundation and Bachelor degree level, leading to a Foundation or Bachelor of Arts, and Foundation or Bachelor of Science qualification.  Some universities offer opportunities for combined honours degree programmes so that you can study sport alongside another subject.  Most universities now offer opportunities to undertake a work placement with external organisations which help students develop their vocational skills in preparation for employment.

International students can expect to pay tuition fees of approximately GBP£10,000-£13,000 per year of study to complete an undergraduate degree in a sport-related subject.
