The Sport Coaching BSc(Hons) will help you develop the knowledge, practical skills and experience needed for a professional career in sport and fitness coaching.

Explore sport coaching theories and their application to practice in areas such as physiology, psychology, biomechanics and sociology. You will also consider how sport coaching is used as a development tool around the world.

Learn from staff who teach from their own professional coaching experiences in sports including tennis and cricket, and who continue to engage with national and international sport. Work placements will enable you to gain practical coaching experience in different sports, settings and scenarios. Previous students have spent their placement with Sussex County Cricket, British Cycling, Football 4 Peace, British Triathlon and Albion in the Community.

There are also opportunities to develop your skills in cardiac rehabilitation, the strength and conditioning of elite athletes and in coaching of specific sports including football, athletics and basketball. Our partnerships with universities in Belgium, Germany, Poland and Spain enable you to choose to study abroad for a semester.

Throughout your course, you will have access to the extensive sport facilities at our Eastbourne campus, which include two sports halls, a fitness suite, all-weather outdoor pitch and swimming pool. You will also use our British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) accredited labs. Eastbourne also provides great outdoor environments including the South Downs.
