Course summary

Our Sports Coaching MRes degree is a year-long, 180-credit degree that gives you the opportunity to conduct your own research and introduces you to the practice of teaching in higher education.

You'll choose which area of sports coaching your research project will focus on. You'll also gain experience of teaching and learning in higher education - this includes spending 120 hours shadowing teachers and assisting them with their teaching of sports coaching modules at the University.

More about this course

Our Sports Coaching MRes degree course will help you in working on a self-directed programme of research, supported by a London Met lecturer who is an expert in the field.

This degree will give you the opportunity to research areas such as communication techniques in contemporary coaching, holistic coaching, use of reflective practice to enhance the coaching process, modern day concepts of cheating in sport, sexual differences and transgender issues in sport. Your degree will usually focus on one of these areas but we welcome cross-discipline research projects.

Your supervisor will be able to advise you on career development and the relevant professional bodies to help support progression in your chosen field. You will be encouraged and supported to attend at least one relevant conference and produce at least one publishable paper.

Assessment

Assessment will be primarily focussed on the MRes thesis. Other modules will contain a range of assessments including essays, presentations, log books, work experience and exams.

After the course

Upon completing the MRes you could pursue postgraduate study such as MPhil or PhD. This degree could propel you towards becoming a lecturer, a graduate teaching assistant, an associate lecturer or choosing a career in research. You could also work in professional research settings, private clinics, professional sports teams and organisations.
