Do you have an interest in the outdoors? Do you love to kayak, climb, canoe or spend time in the hills and mountains? If so, then this is definitely the course for you. Approved by the University of Central Lancashire, the Outdoor Adventure Studies course aims to give you a solid grounding in both the practical and theoretical aspects of outdoor adventure.
Your tutors will promote personal growth through challenging, flexible and high quality learning experiences that stem from years of involvement in the outdoor and other related industries.
Due to our excellent local links, we are able to access high class venues including two climbing centres, a state of the art high ropes course and three water sports venues, all within ten minutes drive of the University Centre. We have established links with other outdoor centres in the immediate area as well as further afield, all of which are a great asset for the application of skills developed during the course and for work based learning opportunities.
Outdoor Adventure by its very nature is a highly practical area and, as such, the Foundation Degree in Outdoor Adventure Studies contains an excellent balance for outdoor practical and classroom-based sessions. During the course you will develop a wide range of vocational based skills that will equip you for the demands of operating both safely and effectively in the outdoors.
One of the main aims of the course is to develop well rounded outdoor adventure practitioners who have both the practical skills and theoretical underpinning knowledge to be effective coaches, leaders and educators within the outdoors.
