The Sport Development and Coaching degree draws on contemporary research with the aim of giving students the opportunity to develop their expertise and ability in a range of areas. These include leading and teaching sport and physical education sessions, creating and testing exercise programmes and developing, managing and evaluating community sports schemes.
This progressive and multidisciplinary degree is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the broad aspects of coaching and sports development. It is underpinned by high-quality scientific research and field investigations.
Throughout the Sport Development and Coaching degree, you will have the opportunity engage in practical, laboratory and field-based testing and training activities in addition to more traditional lectures and interactive seminars.
Students have access to specialist sport physiology, biomechanics and psychology laboratories in our Human Performance Centre, as well as a range of sports and fitness equipment at the University's Sport and Recreation Centre comprising a gym, double sports hall, squash courts, dance studio and all-weather pitches.
