With new Government legislation requiring all students to remain in education until the age of 18, we have the perfect platform to deliver all the education and golf training required to leave students with many possibilities within the golfing industry.
Students at the golf college will complete a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport during the first 2 years, which is the equivalent of 2 A Levels. Upon completion of this, they will then have the following options:
- Complete the Extended Diploma in Sport at The Golf College, which will gain you a further A level equivalent qualification and additional UCAS points. (This is conducted during your 3rd year, or if deemed able, completed during year 1 & 2 through additional modules)
- Continue to university in the US
- Continue to university in the UK (choice of university will be dependant on UCAS points achieved)
If you wish to pursue a career in golf, then the PGA Foundation Degree is the next step, providing education delivered through Birmingham University whilst you train as an Assistant Professional at your chosen attachment.
To gain entry to this course, you must have a handicap of 4 or below, be 18 years of age or over, with English & Maths GCSEs at A* – C grade.
