This module offers a unique chance to learn the skills of a new sport or activity, to learn about your own style of learning and to apply this to another of your academic modules. As you gain the necessary skills you will be looking at how you acquire these skills and methods of improving your competency and the way you learn. You apply these to one of your second semester modules by producing a plan to improve your involvement, learning and grade. The final piece of coursework is to examine and evaluate your plan.

- Traditional sports – dance, badminton, table tennis & squash
