A foundation year at Leeds Beckett is an ideal first step into higher education and will fully prepare you for undergraduate study. We are offering our BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching degree with an integrated foundation year. If you don't have the required UCAS points to be able to secure a place on the full degree programme, this foundation year will prepare you for academic life at our university.

During the foundation year, you will study four sport-related modules. These will introduce you to the subjects included on each of our 10 routes, from sport development and sport and exercise science to coaching and lifelong health.

Two additional modules will develop the academic and study skills needed to successfully transition from school or the workplace to higher education and on to your full degree programme. You will also learn how to access the extensive resources and support services available here at Leeds Beckett, whether you need a hand locating specialist materials in the Library, or you need advice about personal issues.

During your second, third and fourth years you will study an average of six modules each year. Visit each of the course pages below for details of the modules offered as part of your chosen course.
