Staffordshire University: Sports Coaching
|Institution||Staffordshire University View institution profile|
|Department||Life Sciences and Education|
Our MSc in Sports Coaching has been developed for active coaches whose work, family commitments or location mean attending university would be challenging. Delivered online, the course is completed over a minimum of two years by part-time study.
Recent Olympic and Commonwealth games have put a spotlight on the importance of sports coaching at all levels. UK Sport funding has helped to encourage an active nation – and as part of that initiative, the UK government has pushed additional funding for sport into schools.
With the focus on effective coaching at participatory, developmental and elite levels greater than ever, coupled with an increasing acknowledgment of the role that sport can play in regard to positive mental health, our MSc will equip you with an advanced, multidisciplinary understanding of current issues relating to the theory and practice of sports coaching.
The only course of its kind in the UK to be delivered exclusively online, it’s designed for both ‘participation’ and ‘performance development’ coaches who are seeking academic recognition as part of their professional development – whether that is for personal benefit or in relation to endorsed National Governing Body coaching qualifications.
The course is part-time, starting in early September each year and finishing two years later in late September.
On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Sports Coaching
