BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching with Sandwich Placement

The BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching course aims to produce graduates who are both competent and confident coaches. You will learn a mixture of practical ‘teaching’ skills and theoretical scientific techniques, and how to apply them to your coaching practice. Throughout the course you will explore global coaching issues, and be encouraged to utilise a range of learning, teaching and sports science technologies. You will be expected to coach both your peers and external participants, and will have opportunities to take National Governing Body (NGB) coaching awards.

Our strong links with sports organisations and employers mean there will be opportunities for coaching work-experience throughout the course, helping you to develop the skills to meet the real-life needs of sports people across a range of ages, level of performance, and sports settings.
