Program overview

Supported by research active educators, you’ll take a multidisciplinary approach to sports coaching that encompasses sport pedagogy, psychology, sociology, policy and more. You’ll also develop your practical coaching skills across a variety of sports. Uni has established partnerships with internationally recognised organisations, including UK Coaching, The FA, the RFU, Nippon Sports University, as well as regional sporting and educational organisations such as Sport Across Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire University Academies Trust, Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre, Stoke City FC Community Trust and Port Vale FC Community Trust. In your final year you’ll have the opportunity to tailor your learning between a specialised sports coaching focus, or a broader study experience that incorporates greater sports development and sports sociology themes, particularly in the final year of your study.
