Course summary

Train as a strength and conditioning coach in our professionally accredited labs in Cambridge, with the option to specialise inphysiology or biomechanics. Prepare for a career working with professional sports teams or athletes.Working as a strength and conditioning coach is challenging and rewarding. You're responsible for the physical andphysiological development of athletes in search of performance gains – though there's also the option to work beyond elite sport.Strength and conditioning is more than just gym work. You'll help athletes to develop the speed, agility, endurance and strengththey need to compete at the highest levels. With athletes progressing from basic rehabilitation exercise up to reconditioning forreturn to play, the role of the strength and conditioning coach is becoming more and more prominent.Our degree course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to work with professional sportspeople, and it's aligned to UKStrength and Conditioning Association Standards. But there are opportunities outside of professional sport, too: our courserecognises broader national concerns about low levels of physical activity. There's an emerging need for qualified healthcareprofessionals to work with a broad range of clients. We'll therefore encourage and support you to gain fitness industryqualifications.Two of the core strands of strength and conditioning and rehabilitation are biomechanics and exercise physiology. We'll coverboth of them in detail throughout the course, but from Year 2 you'll have the chance to specialise. If you're interested in themovements your players make, or the joint loading that could lead to injuries, biomechanics may be the path for you. Or if you'refascinated by a player’s capacity to perform at the end of a game, or finish strongly in a race, you can focus on physiology.You’ll learn to work safely and ethically as a strength and conditioning coach in our accredited labs in the Cambridge Centre forSports and Exercise Science. As well as gaining practical knowledge that's in demand from top-level clubs and sportingorganisations, you'll also develop your research skills. In Year 3, our final year research project gives you the chance to completean in-depth investigation into an area of sporting practice.By studying at ARU, you'll benefit from highly-experienced lecturers, including practising strength and conditioning specialists,sport therapists, coaches, health and exercise professionals and world-leading researchers. Our team currently includes aParalympian World Record holder, Scottish Women’s Rugby player, and judo champion. We also host visiting guest speakersas part of our Excellence in Sport seminar series.
