Course summary

Coaches and physical education teachers inspire people of all ages to get involved in sport to get the most they can out of it. Ideal if you want to change lives and communities through sport.We believe that all children deserve a high-quality physical education and that all sportspeople can benefit from well-trained, responsible coaches. Our philosophy focuses less on pushing elite athletes to be the best and more on promoting healthy, enjoyable participation in sport for everyone. Alongside modules about the science of human movement, you will also study sport from social, ethical and historical perspectives. We are interested in the impact sport has on people’s lives as well as on their bodies.The course balances academic theory with more practical learning. As your theoretical knowledge grows your coaching practice will develop along with it. There are plenty of opportunities to gain real-world industry experience through our extensive connections with local schools and sports teams. Our partners in the area include York City Football Club and York City Knights rugby league team. Sports teams across the city make use of our impressive Nestlé Rowntree Park Sports Campus and so will you. The site is one of the biggest of its kind in the country and is a hub for sport at the University. YSJ Active, the University’s sport and wellbeing service, also offers opportunities for our students to get involved in placements and community volunteering projects.The academic staff who teach on this course are both experienced industry professionals and outstanding researchers. Our research reflects our focus on social justice and putting the performer before the performance. Some of our recent, highly-regarded research covers bullying in sport, perfectionism in young athletes and the struggle for equality in sport. By joining us you will be part of our vibrant research environment and help push the boundaries of what we know and understand about sport.This course is also available with a Foundation Year (UCAS Course code C7C2)
