Course summary

The MSc Sports Coaching degree is the new programme developed to support the strategic objectives outlined in the UK Coaching Framework. Sports Coach UK have provided the strategy for the UK to be considered the number one coaching system in the World by 2016. Our challenge is to support this and produce postgraduates with a high degree of knowledge and understanding so that they can challenge and innovate their own coaching practice. This will require knowledge of leadership, communication, pedagogy, allied sport sciences and relevant management principles. Students will be afforded the opportunity to work in an environment relevant to their developmental needs. Our sports coaching programme is designed to provide students with the skills, experiences and networks that will establish our graduates at the forefront of coaching practice. The programme is rooted in applied practice by linking theory to practice and provides many opportunities for students to apply their skills in real world contexts across professional and amateur sport both in the UK and abroad.

Opportunities

As a student on Sports Coaching there will be many opportunities for you to engage with industry practitioners. These include professional sports clubs, local authorities, international sports agencies and national governing bodies. We have many industry practitioners contributing to our modules.

We have extensive links with a range of employers both in the UK and abroad, including the USA and China, and if you want to study abroad, we can arrange this for you through our International Student Exchange Programme (ISEP).
