Course summary

Our four-year degree programmes (including a foundation year) provide an alternative route to undergraduate study at university if you do not have the grades to access higher education in the traditional way. In the first year of the four-year degree, students will focus specifically on communication (oral and written), critical thinking, research, independent study, and digital and employability skills. Students will study three core modules and three science modules On successful completion of the foundation year, students will automatically progress on to the first year of their chosen undergraduate programme. 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.

Modules

The Foundation Year modules are Personal Learning Competencies, Taking a Professional Approach, The Individual Project, Foundations of Life, The Chemistry of Nature and Principles of Physics and Mathematics
