Introduction
This course in Sport and International Development is dedicated to the critical study of sport as a tool for international development. The use of sport as a vehicle for promoting and facilitating a wide range of social and welfare needs is a well-established feature of domestic sport policy in a number of countries. In recent decades this has been extended to encompass international development objectives. A particular focus of this course will be on the emergence of the international sport development ‘movement’. It also focuses on specific programmes which utilise civil society interventions with the goal of contributing to broader programmes aimed at conflict amelioration in seriously divided societies. The course is led by Professor John Sugden, who is one of the world’s leading authorities in this area. On this course at Chelsea School, you will be taught by internationally renowned staff. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise Chelsea School was awarded the highest score awarded to any social-scientific sports submission.

The course offers a balance between the critical consideration of theoretical, conceptual and ideological dimensions of the sport and international development environment. It also looks at more strategically orientated evaluations of action-based interventions as they happen in the field.

Areas of study
This course provides the opportunity to study sport and international development from a critical social science perspective drawing on sociology, history, geography, politics, anthropology, philosophy and cultural studies.
Course structure

The course comprises of four modules and an individual project or dissertation.

Programme description

This online course in sport coaching and performance is intended for practising coaches and coach developers to extend their knowledge and understanding of the coaching process.

Globally, coaching is in its most dynamic era in history. Today coaching effectiveness is measured on a host of factors that ultimately contribute to the overall development of athletes rather than a season or career win-loss record. Twenty-first century technology provides greater accessibility to information and visibility to a global community. In this environment, coaches have a responsibility to improve and expand their own capabilities to fully meet the needs of their athletes.

Coaching is critical to sporting development and success. Inspirational and motivational coaches energise others, enabling them to expand their horizons and realise their potential. Talented coaches stimulate interest, encourage commitment and enhance performance in sport. Coaches also need to be supported by informed organisations and individuals, for example, performance directors, strategic leads for sport and coach educators. Sport and physical activity have considerable benefits for current and future physical and psychological well-being. For levels of sporting participation to rise, more educated and skilled sport coaches are required and coaching systems need to ensure strategies are in place to support all those involved in coaching delivery, planning and management.

The professionalisation process can be seen as a key element in the 'up-skilling' of coaches and can be considered critical if the occupation of coaching is to play a part in the upkeep of health and increase the degree and longevity of participation in physical activity, as well as contributing to the success of elite athletes and teams. Recent research has highlighted the need for coaches to have the knowledge and skills to address development perspectives and sport systems to highlight distinct pathways for both athletes and coaches. The development of this masters programme links to local, national and international coach education programmes and performance frameworks to address the importance of promoting sport at all levels of ability and talent.

Building on the extensive history of Sport and Physical Education at Moray House School of Education this MSc will be delivered by staff actively researching sport coaching. This new MSc will enable coaches to develop and evaluate coaching qualifications, encourage coach education and training, interact across international boundaries, and establish ethical guidelines and standards of practice.

Online learning

Online learning is aimed at people who want to study for a postgraduate qualification alongside ongoing work or other commitments. You can study at times most convenient to you.

With the construction of a health and wellbeing centre on the University campus, the school is particularly keen to receive proposals that explore the relationships between leisure, lifestyle and wellbeing.

The University’s Centre for Worktown Studies, working in close co-operation with Bolton Museum and Archive Service, provides a portal for the academic use of the Humphrey Spender ‘Worktown’ photographs taken for Mass Observation in the 1930s. In this context, we would be interested in applications that explore the potential of these images in enhancing our understanding of leisure practices and experiences in this period.

Based in London, this groundbreaking Master’s programme offers students unique access to world-class scholars, thinkers and practitioners drawn from the world of sport and its academic study.

It is directed by Ed Smith, the commentator, historian of sport, and former cricketer for England, Middlesex and Kent.

The course enables the student to undertake research on a specific topic, agreed with the supervisor, in any aspect of the history of sport over the last two centuries. Assessment is by a dissertation, written under expert guidance over the course of the year.

A central feature of the programme is its series of ten evening seminars and post-seminar dinners in a London club, at which participants can engage in general discussion with guest speakers. These experts include:

- Mike Brearley OBE, former Captain of the England Cricket Team and former President of the MCC
- Ed Smith, prize-winning author and former England cricketer
- Sir Clive Woodward OBE, Winning Rugby World Cup Coach
- Professor Christopher Young, historian of sport, University of Cambridge
- Lord King of Lothbury (Mervyn King), KG, GBE, FBA, Director of Aston Villa FC and former Governor of the Bank of England
- David Goldblatt, award-winning writer and sports historian, author of The Game of Our Lives
- Professor Richard Holt, founder of the International Centre for Sport History and Culture and author of Sport and the British
- Simon Kuper, award-winning writer and author of Soccernomics

Sport’s place in modern life has never been more central, and the history of sport is a rapidly growing area of academic study. The course will touch on all major sports – in Britain, America and on the Continent. Some of the themes addressed by the lectures will be:

- Why was Britain so central to the development of modern sport?
- When and how did sport become politicised?
- How has sport influenced attitudes towards class, race, gender and sexuality?
- Sport’s role as an agent and beneficiary of globalisation.

The course will begin with two seminars about how to choose, research and write an academic dissertation, held at the University’s London offices, 51 Gower Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 6HJ. These will be followed by ten guest lectures and dinners, held at the splendid Caledonian Club (Halkin Street, London SW1X 7DR), a few moments from Hyde Park Corner in central London.
