Course summary

OVERVIEW

Our MSc in Sport Coaching aims to advance your coaching skills through the application of science to sport in your coaching context. It draws on a range of disciplines including sport psychology, sport conditioning, and performance analysis. Whether you coach children, elite youth performers or talented masters athletes, the course is designed to provide support in the application of scientific principles to challenge and enhance your coaching practice.

You will be supported by experts with extensive experience in sports practice and research. This support will be tailored to your coaching needs and the environment you coach within. For example, coaches with an interest in developing psychological skills with their athletes may focus on the development of a sport psychology intervention or educational workshop to meet their athlete’s needs. You will have the opportunity to specialise (e.g. strength and conditioning, performance analysis, sport psychology) within the two Supervised Experience modules and work with a highly experienced, research-active supervisor to develop bespoke interventions for your coaching context.

CAREER PROSPECTS

UWS sport graduates have gone on to employment with:

  • Professional sports clubs
  • National sporting associations, governing bodies and other related sporting agencies
  • Local authorities
  • Schools, further education and higher education institutions
  • Self-employment/set-up own business
  • Community projects/voluntary organisations

Graduates are equipped to collaborate with performers as a coach, strength and conditioner or in sport science support. The MSc can prepare elite performers to study their own performance and to develop the necessary skills to help their future performance or prepare them for work opportunities after retirement from sport.
