The Cambridge Nationals in Sport Studies take a more sector-based focus, whilst also encompassing some core sport/Physical Education
themes. Students have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge about different types of sport and physical activity, skills
development and sports leadership to their own practical performance. They will learn about contemporary issues in sport such as
funding, participation, ethics and role models, and sport and the media. Students will develop an appreciation of the importance of sport
locally and nationally, different ways of being involved in sport and of how this shapes the sports industry.
