About Sport, Coaching and Physical Education at Bishop Grosseteste University

Sport, Coaching & Physical Education is an exciting, multi-disciplinary degree which equips you with the vocational, professional and academic knowledge and experience required for those with aspirations for a successful career in coaching, teaching, sports development or the health and fitness industry. This degree requires your practical involvement in sport and physical activity in order to systematically challenge and critique the theoretical aspects of Sport, Coaching & Physical Education.

Sports coaches and physical educators have the opportunity to impact significantly on the lives of those they are supporting and this requires thoughtful, innovative and informed practitioners which this degree aims to develop.

A key feature of the course is its integration of applied professional practice with theory. You will examine academic subjects and develop your critical skills in a variety of practical settings. This may include working alongside professional coaches in elite settings or examining issues linked to sport and physical education provision in schools. Our links with local sports partnerships, governing bodies, professional sports clubs and Sports Coach UK provide exciting work placement and career opportunities. Our staff are also involved in exciting research projects, developing knowledge and professional links that students can access.

You will study a range of modules which focus on the key aspects of sport, coaching and physical education. In your first year, the initial learning focus requires you to demonstrate your written, practical performance and presentation skills in all modules. It provides an introduction to analysis which will feature more heavily in assessments at the next level. Year two will see you have greater opportunities for choice and specialisation, directly reflected in the variety and relevance of assessment types offered. The abilities to compare, contrast, reflect and relate concepts are evaluated. These are assessed through more challenging tasks, more required elements for each module, and greater connectivity between academic, performance coaching and professional insights. In your final year, you will need to demonstrate your ability to function individually and in group and research settings. You will be given all-important opportunities to cope with working under supervised conditions. This develops independence and the ability to think more critically.

What students think about Bishop Grosseteste University

    Fubo

    Testimonial from Fubo, student at Bishop Grosseteste University

    "I first heard about BGU was when I searched for pictures online and I found this university - the photos are so beautiful. Education has always been what I wanted to do, ever since school. I researched a lot of information about the university, and I found out about BGU’s good reputation in education.

    The location is great. I live in Crosstrend house which is really near the town, and I can find the supermarket easily - I was excited to move over from China! The city is really beautiful. Especially up the top of the hill, the Cathedral is beautiful. You only see this kind of place in movies so it’s really good for me to see it in real life.

    All the staff and students are very nice and I love the placements offered through my course. I really enjoy getting to go into schools - it’s giving me a lot of useful experience. The students on my course are really nice - I can always ask them for help which is great as everything is still new for me! The atmosphere on campus is great, everyone is so friendly.

    If you want to study Education then this university is the best choice in my opinion!"

    Xian, PGCE student

    Testimonial from Xian, PGCE student, student at Bishop Grosseteste University

    "Lincoln is a nice place for students for two reasons – the environment and the local people. Even though Lincoln is small, it offers everything I need – I like that everything is in walking distance. In addition, the people here are friendly and helpful and they are always willing to talk to me or help me. As an international student here, I have never felt isolated or bored in Lincoln.

    I would definitely say that the staff make BGU different. Honestly, all the staff at BGU are amazing! They are not only professional but also very helpful and kind. The staff here are willing to do their best to help me. I remember once a teacher asked me the difference between BGU and the other university I went to in the past – I said ‘BGU is like a loving family’. As an international student, I could not ask for a better studying experience abroad. I am grateful studying at BGU, and the great memories that I have here will last for a lifetime."

    Moses Gunda Aza – MA in Education (TESOL)

    Testimonial from Moses Gunda Aza – MA in Education (TESOL), student at Bishop Grosseteste University

    The MA in Education with TESOL course is wonderful. Although I’ve been a language teacher for the past five years it has taught me skills and techniques I never even knew existed until now.

    I had a strong knowledge of linguistics but lacked the sufficient teaching skills to apply it to classrooms so when I was looking at options for where to study, the course at BGU really stood out. Seeing the course modules on offer and reading about BGU’s teaching background, I knew I belonged here.

    When I finish this course I want to go straight back into my role as a language teacher, only this time I want to be as effective and efficient as the course has taught me to be. The course has given me the knowledge and skills to really teach others and taken my abilities to a whole new level. Without exaggerating, I have accomplished much more at BGU than I ever could have expected.

    Before I arrived on Campus I had never actually been to England but BGU has been a home away from home and even though I’ve now been able to visit more places across the UK none have offered the same atmosphere as BGU.

    Acclimatising to life at BGU was really easy thanks to the overwhelming support I received from the university both in and outside of my classrooms. Course mates, faculty, the Library, CELT wherever I’ve been everyone has been wonderful. Everyone wants to be your friend at BGU and most of the time help is on offer before you have to ask for it. Several times now I’ve had people go out of their way to help me find my classrooms, even walking with me to them when they were heading in completely the opposite direction. It really surprised me how people from so many different backgrounds have come together at BGU to create a harmonious society, the community here is amazing.


    I would say to anyone thinking of coming to BGU that if they are looking for quality and a community that recognises all its members as equal and provides the best facilities and teaching for its students then this is the place for them. Nowhere else.
