THE FULL STORY

Physical Education BA (Hons) will inspire you to develop your understanding of human movement, as you study anatomy and physiology. You’ll become skilled in movement analysis, helping you get the skills you need to recognise how our bodies work and pass on that knowledge in a teaching or coaching environment.

Over three years, you’ll discover how you can inspire children, young people and adults to embrace sport and fitness by making healthy choices. You’ll learn how to teach and mentor the next generation of athletes, and how to work with adults to re-engage them with healthy living, activity, physical fitness and wellbeing.


You’ll discover more about:

  • Anatomy and physiology.
  • Teaching and mentoring.
  • How to inspire students.
  • Emotional intelligence and communication skills.
  • Entrepreneurship.
  • Leadership skills.

You’ll start the course with a passion for sport. As the three years progress, you’ll also develop your professional ability with our Target Talent Curriculum. You’ll learn the transferable skills you need to wow at your first job interview, and build the impressive CV you need to fly high in your chosen career.

We’ll help you develop as an excellent communicator – vital for a coach, trainer or teacher. We’ll also help you learn how to plan your career, so that you stand out against the competition when you graduate. Time-management and organisational skills will prove invaluable both when studying, and when you graduate.


STEP INTO THE HUMAN PERFORMANCE LAB

Our Human Performance Lab will be equipped with cutting-edge technology where you can develop your understanding of the human body.

FEES AND FINANCE

University is a big investment and it’s important to consider how you’ll manage your finances.

We’ve answered some of the questions you might have, to prepare you with all the information before taking the next step.


What do I need to pay for? 
If you decide to study away from home, your three biggest outgoings will be tuition fees, accommodation and living costs. 


How much are tuition fees? 

The cost for UK undergraduate students at UA92 for September 2019 entry is £9,000 per academic year. 

Most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this, paid directly to the institution.


How do I apply for a student loan? 
You can apply online from Student Finance England, www.gov.uk/student-finance. Applying is not dependent on an offer, so you can get a headstart on the process. 


When do I pay this back? 
Not straight away. You won’t actually start paying the loan back until you’re working and earning over £21,000 - how much you pay depends on your salary. 


Is there a loan for accommodation and living costs? 
Yes – eligible UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan, again through Student Finance England, up to £8,430 a year to help with the costs of living. Repayment of this works in the same way as your tuition fees – they actually combine together into one sum. 


I’m an international student, how much are my fees? 
Fees for international students will be available soon on our website. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent, upfront before your course begins. 


Can I get advice or support during my time at UA92? 
Absolutely, we will have a Support Team on campus to help you with budgeting and financial advice to ensure you manage your money whilst studying with us. In addition, and as part of our Target Talent Curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life. 


Is there any other financial help available? 
There are other government grants - which you don’t have to pay back - to cover living costs for students with dependents, though these depend on your household income. There is also extra support available for students with a disability. All information can be found at www.gov.uk/student-finance
