Staff Profile

John Humphreys

“My time in the sports and leisure industry has been incredibly varied and fulfilling. I’ve worked on world-class sports events in Scotland’s dynamic capital city, and I’ve helped to transform leisure venues for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. I’ve also worked with the Institute of Sport and Recreation Management to support and develop professional colleagues. The international aspects of my job are particular highlights for me, especially my role as Erasmus coordinator in supporting and promoting student and staff exchange with other European universities. In 2013 I also climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, which had been a longstanding ambition for me.”

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
