To some people, sport and physical education are the same. To others they both serve important purposes in our society. Here at Oxford Brookes, you can learn to improve performance and inspire participation in all areas, from schools and community sport clubs to elite sport organisations.

Sport, Coaching and Physical Education at Oxford Brookes is a community. A community where your lecturers care just as much about coaching and teaching as you do. Where you’ll fit in regardless of what sport you’re into or what you want to do when you graduate. Where you’ll feel free to discuss and challenge your experiences of your practice to learn what works and why.

We believe that you’ll learn best through experiences, so you’ll solve real coaching and teaching challenges, create and analyse your own data as budding practitioners, and even work in clubs and schools to put your ideas to the test. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to develop job prospects throughout all 3 years and the mix of practical and theoretical study will help make you a valuable addition to any organisation.
