Course details

Modules

The course operates on a modular basis that provides flexibility and choice. Each module is worth a specified number of credits, with most modules counting for 30 or 15 academic credits, with each credit taken equating to a total amount of study time which includes scheduled teaching, independent study and assessment activity.

Full details of the modules studied is available on the course website, but modules studied normally include:

Unit 1: Nutrition

Unit 2: Fundamentals of Sport and Exercise Psychology

Unit 3: Anatomy and Physiology

Unit 4: Professional Skills

Unit 5: Coaching Practice and Skills Development

Unit 6: Training, Fitness, Testing

Assessment method

Assessment: The course provides you with opportunities to test your understanding of the subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module normally contains at least one piece of practice or ‘formative’ assessment for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark.

There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. Assessment methods include written examinations and a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and your final year major project. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.
