What makes MSc Sport (Sports Coaching) at Worcester special?

Sports coaching can be an incredibly valuable and fulfilling career for those who have an interest in helping others to learn and develop in their sport. MSc Sport (Sports Coaching) will help take your coaching to the next level by developing a deeper understanding of the theories that underpin your practice and the credibility of the evidence relating to particular approaches. Our students regularly tell us that this course has revolutionised their approach to coaching.

The UK Government, UK Sport and Sport England have aligned their various strategies to place the coach as a key figure in providing support, growth and development to a wide range of people at various stages of their lifespan. Coaching is Changing’ and the “MSc Sport (Sports Coaching) enables you to develop your coaching whether you are more interested in high performance, mental wellbeing or participation.

What will you study?

Our courses are informed by research and current developments in the discipline and feedback from students, external examiners and employers. Modules do therefore change periodically in the interests of keeping the course relevant and reflecting best practice. The most up-to-date information will be available to you once you have accepted a place and registered for the course. If there are insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, this might not be offered, but we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative.

How will you be taught?

The ‘heart’ of the MSc Sport (Coaching) concerns the coach primarily as an educator. Therefore, the course focus explores the latest research and practice concerning how to help our athletes learn and develop. On the course you will explore different perspectives on how athletes learn and critique the underpinning evidence relating to these competing perspectives. We also explore how coaches learn and analyse the ways in which National Governing Bodies, education institutions and non-governmental organisations (e.g. UK Sport and UK Coaching) currently structure learning opportunities for coaches.
