Discover – What can I do with my degree?

Careers in sports can involve working throughout the sports and leisure sector, with athletes or the general public of all ages. You could also work in a range of settings, from sports clubs to schools and community groups. A degree in sport and physical activity will develop transferable skills including communication, adaptability and flexibility, teamworking, professionalism and self-motivation. These skills will make you attractive to a range of organisations. Remember, you can also explore careers that don’t directly relate to your degree. Did you know that over 80% of graduate employers will recruit from any degree discipline?

Develop – Developing skills and experience

If you already have some career ideas, the next step will be to develop your skills and gain some experience to build your confidence and increase your knowledge. You may want to consider volunteering, part-time work, or undertaking a placement to increase your chances of gaining graduate employment after completing your degree. It’s also a great way to try out career paths to see what you enjoy and if it’s a good fit for you.
