About Sports Development and Coaching, BSc (Hons) - at Abertay University

From grassroots initiatives developing the next generation of athletes to training elite sportspeople on the world stage - sports development and coaching requires well qualified graduates who truly understand the challenges and ever evolving nature of the field.

Please note: This is one of the specialist routes within the sports portfolio at Abertay. You'll make your choice of specialist route at the end of stage two of the BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise programme. Students must have completed SPS105 or have a coaching award, a coaching module or have prior experience of coaching at least one sport prior to starting Stage 3 of this programme.

Study the sciences that underpin sport - physiology, sociology, psychology and biomechanics - and gain a comprehensive understanding of sport coaching, social policy, sport development and social issues in sport and exercise more generally as you progress through this fascinating and hands-on degree.

Sport is an expansive industry, which is why this programme has been designed to reflect this diverse and changing employment market to incorporate coaching, service provision, duty of care, as well as personal and community development.

Practical activities and work placements will enable you to contextualise theory to real life applications - including volunteering with the Active Schools programme - and prepare for National Governing Body or industry qualifications and employment in sport.
