This programme supports the continuing professional development of sports coaches and those working in closely related fields.
With three awards available, we look to offer a flexible programme of professional development. Core modules focus on the development of professional practice and knowledge for both coaches and coach tutor / educators.
More specialist modules in the areas of psychology, physiology and biomechanics, as well as practitioner research and individual projects, are offered for the full masters degree.
A coaching placement opportunity is offered on the full-time programme. The programme is most suitable for experienced coaches from a development or performance domain, or those who work in coach education.
Teachers who are coaching within a school framework and other candidates with recent and relevant coaching experience will also be considered.
* Available as a stand alone short course
Coursework, and a thesis of 16,000-20,000 words.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
