UCS Students gain the skills, knowledge and aptitude needed for a successful career in sports development, health clubs, fitness clubs, sports centre management and sports coaching.
Many students gain employment in sports coaching, management and development roles with professional clubs, National Governing Bodies, and other sports organisations.
