We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Sport Coaching equip students to work alongside professional and amateur athletes and sportspeople in a wide range of circumstances. They offer a working knowledge of sport science, along with associated management and leadership skills.
Most of these courses are MSc programmes. Many have a practical element, in addition to academic training. Shorter Postgraduate Diploma and Certificate courses are also available. Note that some courses may require existing qualifications or experience.
Postgraduate training in this subject can be ideal for graduates wishing to qualify for coaching roles, or for professionals seeking additional training and development.
Employment opportunities are varied. Your course may equip you with the skills necessary to work with top sporting teams and associations, but equally rewarding opportunities exist with schools, community leisure centres and public health initiatives.
Sports Coaches can also work in other roles, including private practice as a personal trainer, or management positions within the leisure industry. Some courses may provide a pathway into more advanced research at PhD level.
