Develop more than skills and knowledge
Your UA92 degree goes far beyond the traditional academic experience.
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 Target Talent Curriculum.
Skills you will master
Our Human Performance Lab will be equipped with cutting-edge technology where you can develop your understanding of the human body.
This space will include:
Breath analysis equipment.
Blood analysis equipment.
Equipment for gait and biomechanics analysis.
This means you’ll be able to:
Analyse the use of oxygen by athletes.
Determine lactate threshold and VO2 max.
Examine gait analysis data, which can be used to help alter walking or running style to prevent injury.
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 £25,000 - 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?
£20,655 per year. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent upfront before your course begins.
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 Target Talent Curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life.
Students will take part in regular Insight Days to Salford City FC, where they will interact with coaching and backroom teams, and learn from industry experts. Practical understanding across the different module areas will be brought to life by guest speakers and experts in areas such as sports psychology and biomechanics. Networking sessions and events will take place with sports industry contacts and placements at organisations such as Greater Sport and Trafford Leisure will be available to students in year 3 of study. Through our partner contacts, students will learn a deep understanding of the sports industry, and the importance of health and well-being across the sector.
Further partner connections are built through the Character and Personal Development modules, as students work on projects set by a range of partners and undertake placements which build on their subject discipline and give an insight into working across subject and industry boundaries.
"THERE IS A LOT OF SUPPORT TO HELP YOU WITH BOTH YOUR STUDIES
AND YOUR WELL-BEING."
