Applications are open once more for the UK’s only academic qualification in mountain biking.

Now in it’s fourth year, the hugely successful course is run jointly between Dirt School and the Borders College through the Borders Academy of Sporting Excellence(BASE) in Galashiels. If you think this could be the course for you, why not check out these videos that explain what life as a BASE student is all about.

The Borders College will be able to provide more information on their website, but if you think you could handle riding your bike full time in order to gain an academic qualification, then check out the course on the Borders College website.
