Presentation

The Physical Activity and Sport Sciences Degree (CAFyD in its Spanish acronym) aims to train professionals with methodological and state-of-the-art technical preparation, committed to society, willing to propose efficient work methods within the fields of education, training, health and quality of life, sports management and administration as well as leisure and tourism.

 

EUNEIZ proposes a curriculum that integrates new technologies, focusing on the aforementioned fields and also includes the subjects of sports management and readaptation, two innovative specialisations led by Baskonia and Deportivo Alavés. This involvement from the two most important sports clubs in Vitoria-Gasteiz certainly guarantees the success in the training and education process of new professionals. ‘Learning by doing’ enables future professionals to be trained in practical ways and in real situations, so that they can develop all their skills and competencies.
