St Mary's University, Twickenham

Course Introduction

The development of the programme has included the construction of a new 5,000 square'foot Performance Education Centre, where students are able to practice their skills and coach athletes. Year one of the programme involves over 140 hours of practical, including a module where students are coached by staff for 50 hours. The second year includes the opportunity to study and coach abroad for a semester. Assessments are broad and varied and reflect the skills required to work as a professional coach. You will also develop skills relevant to other careers in sport'related fields, as well as those valued by all graduate employers. The programme has strong links with many professional sports clubs and governing bodies, to ensure students are provided with opportunities to apply for internships and work placements alongside their academic studies.
