About Physical Education and Sport at University of Lincoln

This multidisciplinary programme integrates theoretical and practical knowledge of physical education and sport. It offers the opportunity to develop the skills required to work in the education and youth sport sector.

The longstanding importance placed on physical education, not only for its educational value, but as a vehicle for improving health, behaviour, sports participation and performance, means that the subject continues to have political and educational salience in the UK.

In recognition of its importance, previous and current governments have emphasised improving the quality of physical education and sport provision in schools, particularly as part of the legacy of London 2012. The focus on high-quality physical education has led to an increase in demand for high-quality teachers and coaches.

This degree has been designed for those who have a desire to work with young people in schools or youth sport settings, and who would like to study in an supportive and friendly environment with excellent learning support and specialist facilities.

Students have the opportunity to develop their teaching abilities, knowledge and experience of curriculum activities. Engagement in real-world experience is integral to this programme and students have opportunities to conduct research in schools and sport environments within the local community.

A key aim of the BSc (Hons) Physical Education and Sport degree is to prepare students for life beyond graduation and to provide a sound basis for undertaking a postgraduate teaching qualification or wider employment within schools and youth sport settings.
