The Sport and Surf Science Diploma is a course designed for those with an interest in Surfing and Outdoor activities - the course is an Extended Diploma in Sport and Outdoor Activities.

In addition to these courses students will have the opportunity to take the Beach Lifeguard qualification, Level 1 Surf Coach qualification as well as regularly surfing as part of their lessons. There will also be opportunities for students to take part in Board shaping and links to direct employment in surf coaching and surf therapy.

We are also looking to have direct links with Newquay University, part of Cornwall College, and their foundation degree in Surf Science. Visiting their campus as well as guest speakers from the degree course will also be part of the Surf Academy experience.

On completion of the course students will be able to go directly into employment in the outdoor sector or move on to higher education such as the Surf Science and Marine Science degrees.
