BTEC Level 3 90 Credit Diploma in Sport and Sport & Exercise Science at Kingston College

Course description

The Diploma is year 1 of the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science, it is aimed at learners who want academic experience and who may aspire to apply to university. There is a good balance between coursework and practical work so this course will test your knowledge and skills. This qualification is equivalent to 1 1/2 A Levels, which means that when you have finished the course you may choose to go into full time employment. However, the natural progression is onto the year 2 Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science Programme (with a maximum of 168+ UCAS points being available). If topping up into year two most students progress to university to study a range of Sport Science subjects. Recent graduates have secured places in Physical Education, Sports & Exercise Science, Sports Therapy and Physiotherapy at Russell Group universities (Bath, Exeter, Manchester Met, Durham, Nottingham, Southampton, Bristol, Cardiff & Kings).

Limited Places, so early application is advised.
