Writtle University College is launching a Sports Science with Aerial Performance Foundation Degree

This specialised Sports Science course enables students to develop skills in aerial performance alongside an applied academic and scientific understanding of sport.

The Foundation Degree is designed to ensure that participants can maximise their career prospects after their performance career has finished.

Writtle University College has experience of delivering specialist programmes, including the Cycling Performance Foundation Degree. The FdSc Sports Science with Aerial Performance works in the same way – it gives students the opportunity to study core health sciences such as anatomy, physiology, nutrition and biomechanics alongside specialist modules that develop them as an aerial acrobatic performer, coach or event manager.

The result is a specialised programme that gives them the high-level practical experience and skills to be a performer but also wider opportunities in the varied sports industry, so they could go on to do more training and become a PE teacher or physiotherapist for example.
