The Football Coaching and Performance programme provides an opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge required to gain employment in the football industry both in the UK and internationally. This is achieved by combining the systematic and detailed analysis of Association Football within a vocational and applied coaching context. Students are able to develop their practical coaching competence through studying the theories and concepts that underpin team and individual performance in Association football and by pursuing a supported series of coaching placements. The Football Coaching and Performance programme aims to
- Foster and nurture an engaging and critical analysis of the theories and concepts relevant to enhancing performance in Association Football.
- Develop a critical understanding of the theories and concepts that influence and shape the behaviour and performance of coaches and coaching practice in the context of Association Football.
- Enable students to develop and extend their understanding of the methods and processes of intellectual enquiry related to the coaching and performance process in sport.
- Develop confidence in the application of knowledge and understanding that enhances the competence of students in their capacity as coaches capable of delivering practice without the need for direct supervision.
- Ensure students acquire a systematic understanding of the principles of play appropriate to Association Football and advanced tactical and strategic knowledge relevant to the 11v11 format and other formats of the game.
- Develop a critical understanding of the cultural, political, social and economic landscape in which Association Football is located and the dynamic inter-relationship with the process of sports development at a local, regional, national and global level.

English language requirements
If you are an international student and English is not your first language, you can begin your 3-year degree programme at IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
