Psychology has rapidly become a fundamental part of sports coaching. We’ve developed a course which perfectly combines both disciplines to give you a solid understanding of psychology and the methods you can use to enhance sporting performance. This course covers sports coaching, sports psychology, performance analysis and the management of sports performance.
It’s been designed in consultation with various high-profile industry organisations including UK Sport, BASES, Sport England, Sports Coach UK, the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity and National Governing Bodies, and will give you a comprehensive academic education, all underpinned by varied practical experience.
Our brand new sport performance laboratories enable you to measure the impact that changes to a training regime can have, and how you as a coach can use that information to better athletes or a team’s performance.
According to Unistats, 93% of our final year students agree our staff are good at explaining things and have made the subject interesting. Join us on live chat now to find out more, or register to meet us at an Open Day.
