The Sport Management BSc degree is wide ranging, from teaching and coaching to sport marketing and economics. This provides you with a really good foundation that sets you up for a career in whichever area of the sporting industry you look to pursue.

I did my placement year at ESPN as the Marketing Intern. I was involved with some exciting marketing campaigns that went out across multiple platforms, including TV, radio and social media. Gaining experience at such a world-renowned organisation was a fascinating insight into the world of sport media.

The level of teaching at Loughborough is excellent, the tutors are more than willing to support students academically.

As a sport student there isn’t a better place to study than Loughborough University. The course looks to apply theory to real sporting situations and looks to use the facilities and events on campus to do so.
