We have teamed up with Coventry University Scarborough Campus (CU Scarborough) to offer a Sport and Leisure Management Degree. CU Scarborough is a new £14m complex situated next to the Flamingo Land Stadium.

CU Scarborough has the capacity to take 3000 students in the purpose based site, with accommodation situated within 10 minutes walk. CU Scarborough is a big supporter of local sport, sponsoring our partners Scarborough Athletic FC.


The BA (Hons) Sport & Leisure Management degree aims to create work-ready graduates with skills in developing and managing sports, sports leadership and leisure events management. The course has been designed in conjunction with a range of partners and stakeholder input to ensure you graduate with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive, be that nationally or internationally.

CU Scarborough operates in an area known for leisure pursuits and for international motor bike events, surfing, sailing and world championship mountain biking, plus the Tour de Yorkshire and Yorkshire Cricket Festival. It is also part of the same £50m development as Scarborough Sports Village and Scarborough Athletic FC, and has close ties with Scarborough Rugby Club.

“We are excited to work alongside the SFS International to develop an International Football Degree initiative in Scarborough”.

Mathew Butterworth – Head of Academic Studies CU Scarborough

Chartered Management Institute

This degree programme has been developed to allow modules to align to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) qualification. On completion of your degree you will achieve a CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management, this means you graduate with two qualifications instead of one, an attractive prospect to employers.
