Disclaimer: As our curriculum has not yet been fully designed, the above is information which will soon lead to a list of classes. This is no way a comprehensive course listing, and should be viewed as a strong guideline for curriculum development.
If needed, a personal supervisor can help you keep track of your study progress and further guide your career development. He or she will also support you if you have any personal problems that can adversely affect your schoolwork. Furthermore, a coaching assistant − usually a second- or third year student− can also tutor you. He or she can assist you with the day‐to‐day practicalities of studying International Sport Management. By improving your time-management skills for example, or finding the right people within the programme to answer more complicated questions.
In the first year, you are expected to earn at least 50 of the 60 credits available. In some cases, as part of the 50 credits, you will need have passed a certain subject.
If you fulfil all requirements, the Examination Board will issue a positive study advice and you can continue with your degree programme. If you fail to meet these requirements, you will be issued a negative binding study advice and will be required to leave the degree programme.
The Examination Board may take personal circumstances into consideration, such as illness or participation in professional sports. This will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The study advice may be deferred, possibly with certain conditions attached that must be fulfilled during the following academic year.
You are personally responsible for your academic progress, so make sure to contact your academic career coach early on if things are not going well.
ISPM strikes a perfect balance between theory, group projects mentored by international teaching staff, and case studies put forward by top of the bill experts currently working in the international world of sports. Prospective ISPM students from all over the world will also get the opportunity to follow several international internships at esteemed sports federations and governing bodies, like: the Union of European Football Associations, Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) and the International Tennis Federation ITF. And to top it all off, you will follow courses at the new Sportcampus Zuiderpark and support The Hague City Council during many of its international sporting events.
