The MSc Coaching Science programme provides students with the opportunity to develop and explore their personal coaching practice alongside coaches from a range of sport disciplines. Core ‘Coaching Craft’ and ‘Reflective Practice’ modules examine key transferable skills and provide a theoretical framework which allows individuals to create a personalised ‘Professional Development Portfolio’ that charts their collaboration with guest contributors from a wide array of external governing bodies and agencies. Managed coaching observations provide a further important portfolio experience with a Postgraduate Certificate being awarded to students who complete this initial group of modules.

Those choosing to continue their studies move from the programme’s core to complete a Postgraduate Diploma with a selection of contextualised modules each focusing on a potential future site of employment. Not only do these components aim to develop understanding of teaching, coach education and high performing coach environments but they also tailor their assessment methods to mirror the demands of these professional roles and support long term engagement with advanced practitioners from these domains.

Postgraduate research itself is treated as a further context in which coaching scientists can increase their skills base with completion of a research process module allowing for a sound foundation from which to complete a dissertation project in order to convert their PG Diploma into a Master’s degree.

Currently the MSc Coaching Science programme can be completed full-time in one year or via part-time negotiated study plans ranging from 2 to 6 years depending on personal circumstances and career goals.

The MSc Equine Science programme provides you with the opportunity to develop and further explore a range of applied subjects within the field of equestrian science, building on your prior learning and experience within the industry.

The programme contains core modules within a broad range of subjects; each with a strong applied context enabling you to appreciate and evaluate the interaction of science within practice.

Students have opportunities to use different types of technology, for example gait analysis and electromyography equipment, that they can use for data measurement and collection depending on the modules selected or the line of investigation taken in their thesis.

Your choice of modules will help you to increase your knowledge and understanding of how equine science can maximise performance, extend career length or aid in selection of the performance horse, with a core goal of optimising the horse’s welfare.

Both the postgraduate dissertation module and the optional postgraduate independent study module provides you with the opportunity to examine in greater level of critical detail an area of equine science which you have a motivated interest in and which is potentially linked to future career development.

Students are encouraged to attend conferences, present their research and become a member of the wider academic community, including at our own annual Hartpury-Alltech Student Conference.

The Professional Development (Coaching Science) programme is designed to allow coaches from all sporting environments to develop their practice and professional network by completing a range of portfolio projects negotiated in partnership with personal tutors from Hartpury College’s HE Sport department. Read more
The Professional Development (Coaching Science) programme is designed to allow coaches from all sporting environments to develop their practice and professional network by completing a range of portfolio projects negotiated in partnership with personal tutors from Hartpury College’s HE Sport department. Portfolio projects can be completed by individuals or may form a component of a group effort with coaches working together to investigate an aspect of personal practice before creating an output, such as a report or presentation, that can be published to the wider coaching community. These portfolios can therefore focus on part of the learner’s current workplace responsibilities or be used to plan future ventures directly linked to the coach’s environment and career progression plans.

This innovative approach to postgraduate study allows coaches to focus their research on a number of possible coaching contexts including teaching, coach education and supporting high performance athletes, and therefore to design their own powerful professional development experiences. Core coaching modules are studied alongside students completing the MSc Coaching Science programme, allowing valuable sharing of perspectives and resources across and amongst two related courses that each have individual development needs and group collaboration as their key concern.

All students complete three core modules that focus on the craft of coaching practice, and related areas of concern such as coach philosophy, language, behaviour and planning. Whilst involved in these key debates coaches will also be developing a personal learning plan via an appreciation of reflective practice. These experiences are collated in a Professional Development Portfolio with discussions amongst learning peers and with personal tutors central to this course component. Upon completion of the programme’s core modules students qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate and may choose to continue their studies via focused research into a single coaching context (perhaps due to it mirroring their current workplace or career aspirations) or through study of a broader range of topics, each negotiated by themselves and their tutor. Completion of this phase of the programme sees students eligible for a Postgraduate Diploma and able to carry out an extended final project that once successfully completed results in the award of a Master’s degree.

Module delivery will be supported by a range of student-centred approaches (e.g. distance learning and practice-based activities) and will include peer learning sets which could be face-to-face and/or supported electronically. The programme design team is committed to adult learning approaches that include the development of learning contracts and critical and independent enquiry for the coaching practice-based elements. Assessment methods reflect adult learning principles also, allowing students to shape and develop academic work that focuses on current coaching practice and personal development. Students will benefit from an enhanced learning experience by engaging in a variety of creative teaching mediums such as mentorship, peer modelling, reflective discussion, video observation feedback and experiments in practice.

The programme can be completed full time in one year; part time routes are available and should be planned with the Programme Manager.

Our MSc in Applied Ecology provides you with the advanced knowledge and skills required for employment in field biology, ecology and related areas.You will follow a curriculum with a highly practical emphasis, undertaking hands-on exercises in field and laboratory settings. In the field, you will learn identification skills for a wide range of species in several key taxonomic groups. You will also learn industry-standard survey techniques such as Phase One Habitat Surveying, Habitat Condition Assessments, National Vegetation Classification and Bird Territory Mapping. Laboratory sessions will include use of microscopes in taxonomy and analysis of environmental parameters, such as water oxygen levels and soil nutrient status, to enable better understanding of species-environment interactions.


There will be numerous opportunities to work on on-going projects with linked organisations including wildlife trusts, zoos and wildlife parks, charities and public authorities. It is an expectation that assignments, and especially dissertation work, will have direct impact on understanding and management of species and their environments.

The course is underpinned by the applied research expertise of the teaching team in applied ecology, including conservation of species in the wild and in captivity, biotic responses to climate change, avian and mammal biology, insect behaviour and evolution, non-native species introductions, population and community ecology, and environmental biology. An additional theme of citizen science develops awareness of the role of public engagement in surveying and conserving species in their environment.
