About Sport and Physical Education at Buckinghamshire New University

The BA (Hons) Sport and Physical Education is designed to prepare you for a career delivering sports education to children and young people, either as a PE teacher, sports coach or working as a teaching assistant.

The course will help provide you with the knowledge and experience required for a successful application to teacher training. Throughout the course you will be given the opportunity to work with local schools and coaching organisations. You will also benefit by having access to the University’s modern, well-equipped human performance laboratory.

This course combines both the practical and theoretical study of the techniques and skills involved in the teaching and learning of sport, and how to respond to the changing demands of physical education. You will develop knowledge of the fundamentals of physical education and youth sport, including applied coaching, child development, pedagogical skills, sport and education policy and practice, and sport science.

This course is also available as a four year programme including a foundation year (UCAS code: SPEF).
