Sheffield is an unrivalled place for you to come and study sport!

We’ve got opportunities in Sport Science, Exercise and Fitness, Sports Massage, Coaching and Performance, Personal Training and a brand new Elite Basketball pathway at our Hillsborough Campus where you’ll study in our top class facilities including floodlit 3G pitches, playing fields, sports halls, gym facilities and dance studios.

All this whilst benefiting from our great connections with all the major sporting clubs across the city including Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield Sharks.
