Entry Requirements


Entry onto the BTEC level 3 course requires the equivalent of 5 GCSEs including Maths and English.  Non-UK students and all students for whom English is not their first language, will need IELTs level 4.5 in all areas.

On a case-by-case basis, for those students who do not meet the entry requirements, there is the possibility to take the qualifications you need alongside your first year of study.


We look at the future more than the past.  There are no minimum athletic standards you need to meet.  If you are wanting to compete at the county level, or wanting to make the national team, and you are attracted to an education or career in sport, you are welcome to apply.  The vast majority of athletes will not make the Olympic team or compete in the World Cup finals, but they will probably love sport.  We will enable you to pursue your sporting ambitions and open your eyes to the enormous and varied careers that exist in the world of sport.
