This programme functions as the endpoint of Setanta’s innovative ‘ladder progression’ structure. Essentially, these programmes and courses are developed with the learner in mind and acknowledge that most students do not wish to wait for 3 years to be able to work in the industry. This structure awards students a university-level qualification at the end of each stage of study and facilitates the continual learning process. In the unplanned event that a student must withdraw from the programme, this also operates as a safety net ensuring that everybody who has completed a certain number of modules can leave the programme with a university qualification.
*This qualification is awarded by Setanta Institute through their EU accreditation by Quality Qualifications Ireland (QQI). It consists of an internationally recognised university-level award, the BSc in Strength & Conditioning. This programme carries 180 ECTS credits awarded at Level 7 on the Irish framework of qualifications.
