You’ll get hands-on experience of a range of coaching practices using our excellent sports facilities, including our Sports Laboratory and Strength and Conditioning Suite.
You’ll complete two professional work placements and you’ll have the option to work with business experts in your final year to develop your own viable business plan.
You’ll get experience of using the latest high-performance sport technology, such as GPS tracking and 3D motion tracking, developing the sector-specific skills you’ll need for a graduate role.
Alongside your degree, you’ll be encouraged and supported to complete nationally recognised coaching qualifications in a variety of sports.
