Learning & Teaching
Effective learning, teaching and assessment methods underpin the educational aims and the learning outcomes of all of our programmes and modules. Learning and teaching methods may include lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and practical sessions. Our Virtual Learning Environment is also an integral aspect of the learning package that supports the needs of our students.
BSc Sport utilises Lead lectures to introduce key topics and concepts, whilst seminars, tutorials, workshops and practical sessions focus on the application of key concepts with the aim of enhancing the student experience and engagement. You will also meet tutors on a one to one basis. As a school, we work hard to provide student-centred learning opportunities that deliver a high quality and flexible learning environment.
Learning and teaching methods emphasise and facilitate the development of your critical reasoning, and encourage the integration of practice and theory. Throughout your programme, you will experience both tutor-led learning and self-directed methods of learning. This will increase your independence and reflection and encourage you to develop a positive attitude toward lifelong learning.
Our teaching and learning methods embed the Cardiff Met 'EDGE' (Ethical, Global, Digital & Entrepreneurial) skills and you will be well equipped to demonstrate graduate attributes expected of you in an increasingly competitive world of work. We aim to help you to develop into reflective professionals and critical scholars.
In your BSc sport programme at Cardiff Met, you will encounter a learning experience from induction to graduation that is flexible, coherent and develops your identity within your programme of study.
The assessment strategies for each module vary to ensure that most appropriate method is implemented for your area of study. Modes of assessment are designed to both enhance your learning experience and to acknowledge that you have fulfilled the learning outcomes linked to each module. Assessment also ensures that you have achieved the standard required to progress to the next stage or to qualify for an award (as articulated by the FHEQ and CQFW). Assessments support your learning experience by providing opportunities for you to engage in formative and summative assessments to test your knowledge, ability, skill, and critical understanding. The undergraduate modules are assessed by a combination of assessment types. For example:
- written coursework
- poster presentations
- oral presentations
- seen and unseen exams
- practical skills
- other activities designed to assess, develop, and enhance academic and employability skills.
You will be expected to complete a final project as part of the assessment of your honours degree. Final projects are major pieces of work that may be a research, innovation, consultancy or community project.
Employability & Careers
The Cardiff Met EDGE supports you to thrive in the modern world. Throughout your degree you will experience a range of opportunities to develop your Ethical, Digital, Global and Entrepreneurial competencies through problem-based learning, real-world industry case studies, integrated work experiences on campus and opportunities for work-based learning placements off campus. We will ensure that you get a range of opportunities to develop transferable skills such as communication, team work and leadership.
Work placements can give you a critical EDGE in gaining professional employment on graduation. Students who have graduated from the our sport programmes programme have gone on to work in careers both within and beyond the Sport Industry.
For example graduates from our sport programmes are now working in professional and semi-professional sport, national agencies and governing bodies of sport, local authority and social enterprise based organisations, community related organisations, as well as commercial sport and fitness.
Many students also pursue their own opportunities and set up businesses based on ideas that they have generated during their studies. There is on-going enterprise support available from the Centre for Entrepreneurship designed to help provide the best chance to create a successful enterprise. This includes business mentoring, funding advice, free office space and networking opportunities.
Other students have continued onto further study through our masters programmes for example and then further progressed to doctoral level studies. You could also use the BSc Sport programme to progress onto more generic Masters level programmes at Cardiff Met or other Higher Education institutions offering similar courses.
