This BASES-endorsed programme is the ideal course for students looking to combine their interests in coaching and in the sport sciences which explain how individuals develop and excel. Students will acquire an understanding of the latest theory and research in coaching and in the core sciences of biomechanics, physiology and psychology, as well as the hands-on skills and confidence to apply this knowledge when working with athletes. The course is delivered by highly-qualified coaches and sports scientists, who have extensive experience working within participation, talent development, and elite performance contexts. The course will develop graduates with extensive practical skills and a theoretical underpinning in the fields of Biomechanics, Psychology, and Physiology, including sub-disciplines such as Performance Analysis, Skill Acquisition and Nutrition. You will also apply an inter-disciplinary approach to the analysis and development of coaching practice, and develop skills in research culminating in your completion of an independent research project within an area of personal interest.
