Our entry requirements indicate the minimum qualifications with which we normally accept students. Competition for places varies from year to year and you aren't guaranteed a place if you meet the minimum qualifications.
As the BA [Hons] Business and Enterprise in Sport is a fully online programme, you are not required to be resident within the UK, or to physically attend the university at any stage of the programme.
The programme is offered for part-time study only, allowing you to study a maximum of two modules each trimester, and up to a maximum of 6 per academic year.
Entry to this programme is conditional upon you having elite athlete or support staff status. You will be asked to provide a brief CV of your athlete/support staff achievements, indicating duration of career and performance ranking relative to National and International competition standards.
For support staff, this translates to the ranking and standards of athletes that have been supported. Additional requirements are detailed below according to entry point.
Recognition of Prior Learning
If you do not hold any or all of the below qualifications or awards but are able to demonstrate equivalent learning experiences and knowledge you may be able to enter this programme at any of the entry points.
Your application will be considered on an individual basis, taking into consideration your previous study and experience. You will be required to produce a 2000 word written statement demonstrating that your sport-related experiences have resulted in relevant learning which is broadly equivalent (in terms of content, volume and level) to the learning outcomes of the programmes at the appropriate level.
We will provide you with support in your reflective process through interviews and guidance on presenting your evidence. If you wish to apply for recognition of prior learning you should contact the Programme Leader.

If your first language isn't English, you'll normally need to undertake an approved English language test and our minimum English language requirements will apply. The test will normally need to be within 2 years of starting your course with us (unless you are studying online with us).
This may not apply if you have completed all your school qualifications in English. Please check our country pages to find out if this applies to you.
