The BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching and Performance Science programme will develop the skills required for employment in the increasingly professionalised area of sports coaching and performance analytics. The top-up year supports you to engage with theoretical principles and critically evaluate both your own and external research, while gaining strong practical skills enabling you to seek employment in the sector.As a coach or performance analyst involved in coaching at various levels, from recreational participation through to high performance, you need to draw on a range of knowledge bases to inform your practice. The BSc (Hons) Sport Coaching and Performance Science programme will allow you to develop a critical understanding of the role of a coach across the performance pyramid as well as the academic knowledge needed for effective coaching across the coaching spectrum.While the programme is underpinned by academic disciplines within the sport science area, it focuses very much on a multidisciplinary approach to sports coaching. The curriculum themes focus on student-centred learning, allowing you to develop your personal interests and direct your study to match your career aspirations. Working with a host of local employers you will gain practical experience working in different settings and with different clients; you will also have the chance to engage with research and projects designed to enrich your study and contribute to a real and measurable impact on the local community.

Items range from £15 for individual items up to approximately £150 for a full kit. A range of vocational coaching courses are also available and offered at reduced costs.

5. Assessment method

Most courses are assessed via a combination of coursework, exams and practical assessments. Exams are formal, timed written assessments, carried out in a controlled environment and overseen by one or more invigilators. Coursework differs from exams in that it is usually non-timed and carried out independently. Practical assessments involve observation of your practical skills and competencies by a trained assessor.
