Program description

Sport Psychology Coaching and Physical Education BSc

Our Sport Psychology, Coaching and Physical Education BSc (Hons) degree will introduce you to the wide-ranging field of sports science and its relevance to competitive, community and participation levels of sport. You’ll explore how coaching and teaching involves varying skill sets across different sports and how they can be applied in varying environments. You'll also gain essential knowledge in areas including sport psychology, human movement, the social impact of sport and the value of applying sports development to an individual’s lifelong development.

This undergraduate course will teach you how to encourage, develop and progress other people’s sporting performance or participation. The coaching skills you’ll develop will be equally applicable at both an elite performance and community level.

Increasingly, schools are out-sourcing sports delivery to coaches, and more sports practitioners are entering teaching through coaching. It is in these environments that you can help encourage young people who have never taken part in sport and exercise to improve their health and fitness.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:

  • a minimum of grade C in three A levels or grades BC in at least two A levels in biology, physical education, human biology, biology, sports science or sports studies subjects (or a minimum of 96 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC National, OCR Diploma or Advanced Diploma)
  • GCSE English Language and Mathematics at grade C/grade or above (or equivalent)

If you don't have traditional qualifications or can't meet the entry requirements for this undergraduate degree, you may still be able to gain entry by completing our Sport Psychology, Coaching and Physical Education (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree.

Entry from appropriate foundation and access courses will also be considered.
