Selecting the next path in a learning journey can be confusing for any student. Our dedicated professional team will help you to make an informed decision that best supports your career aspirations. We are proud to educate more than 1500 students through further and higher education delivering innovative courses specialising in sport.

We work in partnership with reputable industry partners who share our passion to help students succeed. Our highly motivated team is committed to working closely with our partners to ensure each learner’s journey is informative, supportive and progressive. We want to ensure our students are exposed to knowledgeable, experienced and helpful staff, so that together we can set learning outcomes realistically aligned to each individual’s potential.

We review our provision regularly with the aim of improving the experiences of our staff, partners and students. This supports our goal of developing unique learning environments at the heart of industry, with high aspirations and a drive to succeed.

We passionately believe in and expect a hard work ethic and unwavering commitment to continual development from everyone. Our aim is that on completion students are better prepared to work in industry and equipped with the foundation skills to become leaders of the future. We are also committed to ongoing professional development of our staff so they are able to take on new challenges and support our students to succeed in the evolving world of work.

UCS is an inclusive centre, guided by the traditions of industry professionals, that places key emphasis on areas around intellectual curiosity, provision to others, and a comprehensive perspective on education. A UCS education is grounded in sporting excellence, promotes career preparation, and provides opportunities for personal and professional growth in the sport and its associated areas. A student-focused learning community that values equality and diversity and focuses on the education of the whole person, here at UCS, we guide the intellectual, ethical, and physical development of each individual on our programmes.

On behalf of UCS, I encourage students to find out more about how we can support your career aspirations and look forward to welcoming those who are serious about their future.
