Course summary

Course Overview

The role of a strength and conditioning coach is fundamentally to enhance the physical performance of athletes and minimise the likelihood of injury. Indeed, the modern strength and conditioning coach is a vital member of the team, behind the team, in most professional sports. Our strength and conditioning degree has been closely mapped to the United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) core competencies and developed in line with the requirements of National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) stringent Education Recognition Program (ERP). As such, if your ambition is to pursue a career in performance sport or work as a personal trainer then our course will equip you with scientific knowledge and practical coaching skills, you need to succeed.

Employability

What are my career prospects

We have a strong focus on the employability of our students. To ensure you’re well prepared for employment, you’ll be offered optional work placements in your second and third years. We've got well-established links with sports organisations, including Wycombe Wanderers Football Club, Watford Football Club, London Irish Rugby Club and FAB academy. These partnerships will enhance your course experience while you are a student with us, as well as provide experience and practical based learning. Your placements may initially involve observing or shadowing professionals working in strength and conditioning functions. You’ll then progress to more hands-on roles as your level of experience grows.

In your third year you will undertake the UKSCA Accredited Strength and Conditioning Coach (ASCC) assessment. In addition, the course will help to prepare you to sit the NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) exam upon graduation. These qualifications will support you when progressing to work in a range of environments within the field of strength and conditioning. You could choose to work with national governing bodies of sport, professional sports teams, national institutes of sport, further and higher education providers, private practice (e.g. personal training), and private sport science service providers both in the UK and overseas.
