UCAS Course code C610


The BSc (Hons) Sport Coaching degree is designed to develop you develop key coaching skills to understand participants and their sport, and how to plan, deliver and review both short and long-term training programmes. Coaching is a very broad subject to study so we have designed the degree with lots of options for you in the second and third year of study so you can specialise in the area that most interests you. So for example, you can focus on coaching and performance analysis, or coaching children or the psychology of coaching or coaching and PE. In effect with our programme you can design your coaching degree to meet your career aspirations.
More than half the course delivery and assessment will be practical in nature. You will complete a minimum of 120 hours of Work-based learning in your second year and have the option to complete a further 120 hours in your final year as part of your studies. So you have many opportunities to apply ideas from the course and build the skills that employers look for. Modules on offer include performance analysis, skill acquisition, coaching special populations as well underpinning sport disciplines modules such as physiology, fitness training and sport and society.
