BASES Course Finder

The BASES Course Finder is a directory of undergraduate and postgraduate sport and exercise science courses offered by universities in the UK. It has been developed to assist students in locating degree courses in subject areas related to sport and exercise science.

The BASES Course Finder is a popular resource, with over 50 universities listing their courses in the directory. Add your institution and courses to ensure you are promoting your offering to the hundreds of prospective sport and exercise science students visiting our site every month.

How we promote your courses

We promote the course finder directory to our 1,200+ student members and schools and colleges across the UK. We also promote via the following channels:

  • BASES website
  • Social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn)
  • BASES member newsletter (monthly)
  • BASES non-member newsletter (quarterly)

The Course Finder directory allows institutions to provide a range of information about the courses offered, all in one place:

  • Course title, UCAS code, study level and learning formats (e.g. distance learning)
  • A course description
  • Direct website link to your department or programme website
  • An overview of the institution/department
  • Contact details for finding out more information

How to list your courses on the BASES Course Finder

Courses are not automatically listed on the BASES Course Finder*. Institutions need to complete the online BASES Course Finder Form to add courses to the directory.

The annual fee for adding courses to the directory is:

  • 250 (+VAT) for up to 5 undergraduate and/or postgraduate courses
  • 400 (+VAT) for up to 10 undergraduate and/or postgraduate courses
  • 500 (+VAT) for up to 20 undergraduate and/or postgraduate courses

Institutions with at least one BUES endorsed degree, or a BASES Accredited Laboratory, receive a 20% discount on BASES Course Finder listing fees.

*Note: BUES endorsed courses are listed on the BASES Course Finder directory - this is covered by the endorsement fee.

Course Finder listings run from May 1 - April 30. This ensures course information is up to date during the period when most students are searching for degrees (May to November) for the following academic year. Courses can be added at any time, but renewal always takes place in April.

If you have courses listed on the course finder, you will receive a renewal reminder in April requesting details of course changes.
