We live in an exciting time for sport and fitness. It’s a growing global industry that provides career opportunities the world over. 

On this Sports Performance course, you’ll get an understanding of the key issues in sport, develop your own fitness, and learn about the science that underpins our physical ability.

What will you learn? ×

You will study a stimulating mix of topics, including sports psychology, coaching and movement analysis, as well as essential areas of sports science, including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.

Studying the Cert HE in Sports Performance will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to advance your career in a number of sports related roles for example jobs in performance analysis and training, coaching and instructing or in the wider health and well-being sector.

How will you learn it? ×

Our Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) courses are designed for learners who either:

  • want to study for a degree but don’t yet hold the entry requirements for a full degree programme, or
  • do not want to commit to a full degree programme at this point but would like a level 4 undergraduate qualification equivalent to the first year of a degree.

The course will allow you to experience university-level study, equivalent to the first year of a degree gaining both subject knowledge and developing personally through the first stage of our Character and Personal Development. Upon successful completion of the course, you can leave with a Certificate of Higher Education. Alternatively, you may wish to apply to progress to the full degree programme at UA92.

A student registering for a Certificate of Higher Education can still complete a degree within 3 years.

Develop more than skills and knowledge ×

Your UA92 degree goes far beyond the traditional academic experience.
Not only will you increase your knowledge and sports performance skills, but you will also focus on your personal and character development so that you are ready to take on the world after graduation.

Our ambition is to take you on a personal development journey. It’s about discovering just how much you’re capable of, and graduating a better version of you. From leadership to resilience and effective team working, it’s all covered by our Character and Personal Development curriculum.

What do I need to pay for? 


If you decide to study away from home, your three biggest outgoings will be tuition fees, accommodation and living costs. 

How much are tuition fees? 


The cost for UK undergraduate students at UA92 for September 2022 entry is £9,250 per academic year.

Most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this, paid directly to the institution.

How do I apply for a student loan? 


You can apply online from Student Finance England, www.gov.uk/student-finance. Applying is not dependent on an offer, so you can get a headstart on the process.

When do I pay this back? 


Not straight away. You won’t actually start paying the loan back until you’re working and earning over £26,575 - how much you pay depends on your salary. 

Is there a loan for accommodation and living costs? 


Yes – eligible UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan, again through Student Finance England, up to £8,700 a year to help with the costs of living. Repayment of this works in the same way as your tuition fees – they actually combine together into one sum. 

I’m an international student, how much are my fees? 


The cost for international students wanting to study at UA92 for September 2022 entry is £14,466*. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent upfront before your course begins.

*Fees are subject to annual change. 

Can I get advice or support during my time at UA92? 


Absolutely, we will have a Support Team on campus to help you with budgeting and financial advice to ensure you manage your money whilst studying with us. In addition, and as part of our Character and Personal Development curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life.
