Do you really enjoy sport but are undecided on your future career? This course will allow you to keep your options open whilst enjoying studying a range of interesting subjects which can be applied to a variety of sport and teaching-related jobs. You’ll practice teaching and coaching skills from a range of perspectives such as working in schools and community settings. You’ll develop an appreciation of how the disciplines of physical education and sports coaching complement each other, studying a combination of practical and theoretical modules in pedagogy (how to teach and coach), sports science, analysing performance, sports policy, psychology, sociology and philosophy of sport.

What’s more, you can even gain additional coaching qualifications alongside your degree.
