HNC/HND Sports Science
Following our continued success post-16, we have decided to offer the HNC/HND in Sports Science from September 2015. This fantastic opportunity has come about due to the ambition of our high performing sports department, combined with our very own students asking us to offer the course.
If you are interested in a career in sport such as teaching, coaching, performance analysis or sports psychology and are not quite ready to move away from home to study at university, then this qualification at NEW College, Pontefract could be the right choice for you.
