BSC (HONS) IN
SPORTS COACHING

WE HAVE A FANTASTIC PARTNERSHIP WITH LOUGHBOROUGH COLLEGE WHICH ALLOWS US TO OFFER STUDENTS THE CHANCE TO ACHIEVE HNC, HND AND BSC QUALIFICATIONS.

With the aim of preparing you for a successful career in coaching, coaching support, coaching management or teaching, this three-year degree programme combines practical coaching with the academic theory of fundamental concepts within coaching, sports science and teaching. You will develop your practical and contextual knowledge, and reflect on and evaluate your own coaching behaviour by putting theory into practice through applied studies, placements and assessments.

Details

Coaching practice constitutes a large proportion of this programme, providing you with the opportunity to gain feedback from experienced, professional coaches. You will also be required to conduct your own research project, allowing you to explore a particular area of personal interest in the coaching field.

The course uses a range of learning strategies, including lectures, seminars, practical sessions, workshops, online activities and peer-group learning. You are also encouraged to become an independent, self-motivated learner.

Assessments include exams, essays, projects, presentations and reports. Such diversity allows you to refine various academic and professional skills to prepare for your next steps. An Academic Tutor will work closely with you throughout the duration of your programme, supporting your development and tracking your academic progress to ensure that you maximise your potential.
