One year full-time
(Part-time options are available)
Our Masters in Sports Coaching provides students with the opportunity to develop and explore their personal coaching practice alongside coaches from a range of sport disciplines.
Building on core ‘Coaching Craft’ and ‘Reflective Practice’ modules and managed coaching observations, you’ll develop a personalised Professional Development Portfolio that sets out the skills and experience you have gained working alongside people from a wide array of external governing bodies and agencies. The Postgraduate Certificate is awarded to students who complete this initial group of modules.
Those choosing to continue their studies move on to complete a Postgraduate Diploma and will complete a selection of modules which are focused on future career opportunities and ambitions. Not only do these components aim to develop understanding of teaching, coach education and high performing coach environments, they tailor their assessment methods to mirror the demands of these professional roles and support long-term engagement with advanced practitioners from these areas.
Postgraduate research enables our coaching scientists to increase their skills base and you will choose a dissertation project in collaboration with your programme manager, which will enable you to convert your Postgraduate Diploma into a Masters degree.
Currently the MSc Sports Coaching programme can be completed full-time in one year or via part-time negotiated study plans ranging from two to six years depending on personal circumstances and career goals.
