Course summary

USW's blended learning MSc Advanced Coaching in Strength and Conditioning is written by coaches for coaches and aimed at people wishing to pursue a career in the coaching of strength and conditioning or as a coach in the fitness industry. It is taught by an expert team of industry professionals including Ian Jeffreys, the world-leading professor in strength and conditioning.

Effective coaching in strength and conditioning is about far more than sets and reps. It is about building a performance environment, developing relationships with athletes and with other members of the performance team. It is about leadership, management, reflection, teaching, motivating; yet few courses cover these critical components.

This strength and conditioning postgraduate course is different. Instead of focussing on what to do, we focus on how it is done, with the coach firmly in the centre. Every module has been designed after extensive consultation with coaches and based around the reality of the performance ensuring you are prepared for what the industry will throw at you.

Assessment

Assessment is built around the application of knowledge and wherever possible reflects the tasks coaches undertake in their daily work.

It entails a range of practical assessments, portfolios, reports and case studies, together with a final applied solution project.

Careers

The MSc Advanced Coaching in Strength and Conditioning aimed at people wishing to pursue a career in the coaching of strength and conditioning or anyone wishing to pursue a career as a coach in the fitness industry. It is ideal for graduates from strength and conditioning degrees or wider sport science degrees.

Career options for graduates include strength and conditioning coach, personal trainer, fitness industry coach and high performance coach. Students may also progress to a sports PhD or research degree.
