There has never been a better time to pursue a career in the sports industry. The dynamic energy created in the UK by the recent Olympic and Commonwealth Games has highlighted the importance of creating and managing sport legacies that will benefit future generations.
Our BA (Hons) International Sports Management delivers a unique insight into the large and growing economy of sport management on a global playing field.

On graduation youll have the specialist knowledge and leadership skills to pursue a career managing and organising at a local and international level.
Together with this knowledge you will benefit from an experienced academic team with impressive industry connections and a practical approach to learning.

In addition to the central subject of sports management, you will study a range of complementary business modules designed to provide you with a wider understanding of business and the society in which you'll operate as a global leader of tomorrow.
You can choose your 'Open Option' modules from a wide variety of subjects including European languages, psychology, sociology, politics, history, communications, and other management or business related subjects.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
No work experience is required.
