Course Content

Renowned for our provision of high-quality teaching, your learning will include online lectures, seminars and activities, as well as independent study. Learning will be largely online with 5-7
contact days per year, where you will be required to visit Loughborough College. During these contact days you will be able to put theory into practice, by utilising our sports science laboratories and practical facilities, where you will learn to develop your coaching techniques under the guidance of our expert staff.

Assessments include a range of essays, projects, presentations and reports. Such diversity will allow you to experience various modes of academic and professional practice, developing your abilities and refining your skills in preparation for your next steps. We have an excellent support
system in place, where tutors will work closely with you both remotely and during contact
days throughout the duration of your programme. They will support your development and
track your academic progress to ensure that you achieve your best.
