Richard Huish College

Welcome to this information section, which has been specially created for those students who have applied to study for their FdA Sports Development & Coaching, FdA Business Management, BA Sports Development & Coaching and BA Applied Professional Studies Leadership & Management (Top-up) at Richard Huish College in Taunton. If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact either the University of St Mark & St John (Marjon) or Richard Huish as detailed below.

You will receive communication over the summer period of 2015 from both central admissions at Marjon and also directly from Richard Huish. If you are not sure if any information is relevant to you please contact Richard Huish to check. For example the purchase of Marjon sports kit does not apply to Huish applicants as you will receive sports kit within the fees you will be paying.

 We are all looking forward to welcoming you to the course in September.
