Potential needs to be unlocked. That’s what our BTEC Sport & Exercise Science course is all about. Over two years you’ll cover the nutrition, physiology, psychology, and fitness – and sheer blood, sweat, and tears –needed to start the firing gun on your career in sport and fitness.
Recognised by top sports universities like Loughborough and worth three A Levels, you’ll make full use of our great sporting facilities that include a swimming pool, football and hockey pitches, an athletics track, and tennis courts, and get a sound grip of the science too.
Fantastic sports pitches, pools and court all on site and ready for you to use. We have some of the best sporting facilities in the city. We also put them to good use: our football team – which included many BTEC students – took the Norfolk FA Cowles Cup in the very first year they took part in the Under 19 competition.
Top-flight teaching and coaching both in and out of the classroom, from a knowledgeable teaching team with real-life experience of working in professional sport. You'll get expert tuition in both practical sport and the academic aspects that enable you to really focus performance.
Proven career pathways
The industry-recognised BTEC qualification is great for work or further study, including as coach, personal trainer, or many other related fields.
