BASES Undergraduate Endorsement Scheme (BUES)

The Association’s endorsement scheme endorses sport and exercise science undergraduate courses and is a recognised standard for all sport and exercise science undergraduate degree programmes. Our assessment criteria ensure that only the highest calibre courses achieve our endorsement award. Endorsement gives university departments credibility and status evidence. For students, BUES provides a reliable list of meticulously tested courses and ensures that students' investments are rewarded with a high standard of education.
