Sport & Exercise Sciences Diploma Level 3

Level 3 - Advanced

Sport & Exercise Sciences Diploma Level 3

The One-Year BTEC National Foundation Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science is intended for those who want to continue their education and aim to progress to higher education and ultimately to employment, possibly in the sport and exercise science sector.

This qualification is wide-ranging and equivalent in size to 1.5 A Levels, and can be used to progress to the Extended Diploma in the second-year of a study programme. Students who wish to take this qualification will have successfully completed a Level 2 programme of study with GCSEs (preferably English, maths, science & PE/sport) and potentially some vocational subjects.

Of the six units studied, four are internally assessed and two are externally assessed. Therefore assessment is made up of approximately 67% internally assessed work (projects, coursework, work books, research, presentations etc) and 33% externally assessed by Edexcel in the form of examinations and set tasks.
