Sport

A BSc stands for Bachelor of Science, and it is an undergraduate academic degree. Depending on the particular program, students who earn a BSc may choose to enter into a career or continue their education and earn an advanced degree.

When studying sport, students usually choose between focusing on the business and strategic elements of sports or the physiological aspects. Those studying the former typically have the potential to coach or manage professional sports organizations while the latter aid in physical training.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
