Course Description

Programme description

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 programme 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.

The degree can be taken full-time over 12 months or part-time over 72 months. Students can complete the full MSc (180 credits) or exit earlier with a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits) or a Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits).

There are a range of options for part-time students including single courses to contribute to CPD, and interested students should contact the programme directors directly to find out more.

Students must complete three compulsory courses to be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate and then complete a further three compulsory courses to progress to the Postgraduate Diploma stage. Students are then required to complete a dissertation to be awarded the MSc.

Career opportunities

Potential career paths, exit routes and employers are very diverse given the global nature of the course but include: national sporting organisations, coaching bodies, sport and fitness industry, postgraduate research, sport and coaching development, performance planning, performance management, coaching consultancy, and teaching in further and higher education institutions.
