About the course
Our accredited Sports Coaching and Performance programme is one of only a few in the country to be awarded a mark of excellence by Skills Active and Sports Coach UK. Throughout the course, our expert coaches teach you how to apply theoretical knowledge to real-life coaching, and to work closely with professional teams and athletes. You benefit from high-quality facilities, such as the £1.5m Health and Performance Lab, and receive practical training from specialist practitioners.
There are three course options available for studying Sports Coaching and Performance Science at Hull. The foundation year option is ideal if you do not have the academic background for direct entry on to the three-year BSc programme. You also have the opportunity to study a four-year degree at Masters level, to apply what you’ve learned through your own practice in Year 4.
The course was designed for, and will appeal to, those wanting to follow a career in coaching children, adolescents or adults across all levels of abilities as well as those interested in the teaching of physical education.
At Hull, you can gain experience by working as a sports coach, work placements and working towards National Governing Body of Sport coaching awards. Excellent links with local authority Sports Development Units and organisations further afield open up opportunities for work experience, coaching education courses, workshops, events and activities which enhance your experience of the course and improve your employment prospects.
