The Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) in International Sports Management is a world leading and industry focused qualification which has been collaboratively developed by the University of London and World Academy of Sport (WAoS). The fully online, self-paced certificate that consists of six modules, allows students to complete the course between one and five years. The 60 credits obtained from the completion of the certificate is a globally recognised qualification that can be further applied to a Master’s degree for those students who want to continue their studies to the next level.
The next intake will start in September 2023 and applications will close on 24 July 2023.
The industry of sport management is becoming more professional and global. The demand for highly qualified senior managers is increasing. A postgraduate qualification can give students the extra level of skill needed to progress in the industry.
The course has been designed for middle/senior managers in sporting organisations wanting to broaden their experience and international sports network. It is also relevant for younger managers who are looking to make a quicker progression through their organisations and gain a broader network of contacts and experience across many different sports.
MEET OUR STUDENTS
Our Postgraduate students represent
The programme is delivered online and there is no requirement to come to the UK as part of your studies. Our flexible online programme allows you to work around your own schedule and leads to a globally recognised, academically sound and industry focused qualification that is highly valued by sports organisations.
Students can complete the programme by enrolling in the full Postgraduate Certificate (PGC) in advance of starting the programme. Students can also enrol on a module-by-module basis. Students enrolling on a module-by-module basis need to complete four modules including the two core modules (Strategy, Governance & Leadership and Financial Management in Sport) to obtain the full PGC recognition.
The flexible approach to learning allows students to complete the PGC in a minimum of one academic year to a maximum of five years. Individual modules can be completed in a minimum of six months to a maximum of two years.
As a general rule, one UK credit equates to 10 hours of work; a 15-credit module therefore requires 150 hours of study on average.
