Course summary

Course Overview

The Doctorate in Sport Coaching aims to equip practitioners and related scholars with an appreciation of the symbiotic and synergetic relationship between theory and practice. As opposed to a distinct research focus characteristic of a traditional PhD, the amended emphasis of the DSC lies in practice as both the recipient and generator of research. The DSC arises from a demand for high-level, leading-edge knowledge and skills training, coupled with increasing the use and exploitation of coaching research in practice. It offers a unique opportunity for professional and career development, focusing on applied and experiential learning within a community of practice.

Assessment

The modules will be assessed by a combination of written assignments, presentations, portfolios of evidence and oral vivas. Preparation and support for assessments will be provided through classroom-based sessions, individual tutorials, formative assessment opportunities and library support.

Employability & Careers

This programme aims to provide a contemporary leading-edge academic and professionally relevant Doctorate for the international community of sports coaching practitioners and scholars. Potential career progression routes include sport coaching, coach education, coach development and Higher Education lecturing.
