Additional Information

On this course you will not be confined to the lecture theatre or seminar room – although of course you will spend a fair amount of time there, too.

You will learn from research active academics and also through learning tours to high profile sports venues such as Wembley Stadium and Wimbledon. Teaching is through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, guest speakers and out-of-class activities.

Good sports management, like most sports, relies on good team-work and you’ll be expected to work effectively with other students. Your assignments will have a practical focus, as you’ll be expected to produce work such as a project proposal, marketing plan, or use data to help analyse a particular market.

As part of the course you will conduct a Sports Management Consultancy Project, which should be related to a real life issue or problem. It could be doing something, such as planning and delivering a training programme in a sports context, or it could be researching an issue, such as the lack of sports participation in a geographical area, and then developing a plan to address it. And if you’re good at sport, you could apply for a UEL Sports Scholarship, worth a £3,000 reduction in fees.
