Update: BASES Undergraduate Endorsement Scheme (BUES)

16th March 2020

BASES recognises that many institutions are faced with changing the delivery mode and assessment methodologies of their academic programmes as a result of COVID-19, and we would like to reassure you that this will not have an impact on your BUES endorsement. The scheme has been purposefully redesigned so that there are no individual compliance criteria, and that institutions need to demonstrate that ‘on balance’ their teaching strategies and programme activities meet the endorsement outcomes. The methods by which institutions currently deliver their curriculum and assess their students significantly varies, and it is expected that in order for students to be awarded their degree, any revisions would continue to meet the Programme Learning Outcomes, and by extension BASES endorsement. 


BASES stands for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences. BASES is the professional body for sport and exercise sciences in the UK.
