Are you at the top of your sporting game, or on your way to becoming a coaching expert? Specialising in sport leads you into a rich variety of interesting and rewarding career opportunities. Specialist sport colleges offer the chance for elite athletes to combine study with sport.
Colleges such as Hartpury College, Loughborough College or Gateshead College, to name a few, are sport specialist colleges that aim to guide their students to success, on and off the field. These colleges focus on creating the perfect place to train and develop sporting abilities whilst the courses focus on the application of knowledge and providing students with the chance to develop desirable skills for employment and further study.
These colleges can offer a selection of qualifications from A Levels to Diploma’s or Apprenticeships in a variety of subjects such as Sports and Exercise Science, Sports Coaching, and Sports Massage Therapy. If you would prefer to take more traditional A Levels subjects but still attend a college where sporting excellence is widely supported, these colleges offer this too!
