People who are interested in degrees in sport can take part in free taster sessions at East Riding College next month.

They will cover topics such as nutrition, treatment of injuries and exercise psychology, and are open to anyone who is thinking of finding out more about further education.

The taster sessions will include a range of activities to watch such as a nutrition lecture, practical student assessments relating to injury management and student presentation assessments on exercise psychology.

Programme leader Abigail Brunton said: “These taster sessions will give prospective students a real insight into the kinds of topics which our higher level sports courses cover.

“They are also an opportunity to see our excellent facilities, meet our tutors and ask any questions you might have about the courses and the potential career opportunities associated with them.”

East Riding College runs a Foundation Degree in Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, which can be studied for two years on a full-time basis or three years part-time at the Beverley and Bridlington campuses.

This can be followed by a “top-up” course which results in a full BSc degree and can be studied for one year full-time or two years part-time, again at the Beverley or Bridlington campus.

The taster sessions will be held on Thursday, 7 May, from 9am to 11am, at St Mary’s Walk, looking at nutritional strategies for sports performance and on the followingMonday, from 9am to 11am, looking at treatment and rehabilitation of injuries in sport

The programme leader will also be available after the sessions to discuss the courses and answer questions.
