The programme, based on a core of Sport Science topics, helps students to develop both knowledge and practical skills in applying science to sports coaching. There are three strands which run throughout the degree: 1) coaching process; 2) skill acquisition; 3) notational analysis. These strands are fundamental components of sports coaching and are unique to many other sports coaching degrees. Students will also study sport science modules of their choice. The programme does not favour specific sports and we encourage students to relate the degree content to their sports coaching domain. Through the programme you will develop skills relevant to other careers in sport related fields, as well as those valued by all graduate employers.
Year One is a foundation year for all students within Sports Coaching Science. Students cover core sport science topics and two specialised coaching modules. After the grounding in theory provided at Level 4 you will now progress into practical understanding and the application of acquired theoretical knowledge to enhance coach effectiveness. Specialised coaching modules are taken alongside optional sport science modules. In Year 3 you will complete, alongside other theoretical and practical modules, an extended research project. Advanced issues and research are covered through theoretical and laboratory based work.
