We are launching a new BSc (Hons) Sport Science degree, ready for September 2021 entry, which brings together many of the previous sports programmes offered by Easton College and City College Norwich into a single programme.

This programme is likely to include three pathways, with students able to select a pathway in year two. These pathways will be in Sport & Exercise Science; Sports Coaching and Development; and Health, Fitness, Strength and Conditioning. Please note that individual pathways will only be offered if a minimum of six students choose that pathway when making choices in year two.

Depending on which pathway is chosen in the second year of study, students will achieve one of the following exit awards;
BSc (Hons) Sports Science (Health, Fitness, Strength and Conditioning)
BSc (Hons) Sports Science (Sport and Exercise Science)
BSc (Hons) Sports Science (Coaching and Development)

With excellent links with numerous fitness centres, sports clubs, governing bodies and organisations in the region, students have the invaluable opportunity to develop their vocational experience alongside their studies. Not only can this provide scope for students to apply for internships or additional qualifications, it further establishes the necessary skills required to secure employment upon completion of the course.

NB this programme will be delivered across both our Easton College and City College Norwich sites, in order to utilise the range of facilities at these locations.

Why our College?

Outstanding progression

97% of our full time gradates and 100% of our part time graduates are in employment of further study 6 months after completing their degree (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes).

This places our College in the top 10% of providers and provides you with excellent routes to get you to where you want to be.

Flexible study options

Most of our courses require no more than two days attendance at college. This means you can continue to work alongside your studies and balance other commitments.

Smaller class sizes

Our smaller class sizes mean you get all the support you need during studies. This is a crucial difference to larger universities and provides you with access to your lecturers when you need them.

  • Our typical offer is 64 UCAS tariff points from A levels or equivalent
  • A minimum of GCSE maths, English and science (preferred) grade 4/C or above or National Literacy and Numeracy tests at Level 2 or 3
  • UCAS points from Scottish Highers or Advanced levels are accepted

This 3 year programme is delivered through a mixture of workshops, lectures, seminars, practical sessions, tutorials and self-directed study. Students are expected to use these as learning platforms, to build upon the content of lectures and seminars with group and peer discussion.


Previous students on similar courses have gained entry to Masters level study in areas such as physiotherapy, sports performance, sports psychology, sports management, exercise physiology, strength and conditioning, and sports therapy

Career Progression

Students have also progressed onto teacher training opportunities in secondary and primary settings. Students may also choose to enter employment or graduate internships in a range of industry based careers, such as research and development, activity leaders, teaching and education, health promotion, and strength and conditioning coaches. Some students have also established successful businesses, for example in the coaching industry.
