Program description

Sports Coaching MRes (Full-time)

Our Sports Coaching MRes degree is a year-long, 180-credit degree that gives you the opportunity to conduct your own research and introduces you to the practice of teaching in higher education.

You'll choose which area of sports coaching your research project will focus on. You'll also gain experience of teaching and learning in higher education - this includes spending 120 hours shadowing teachers and assisting them with their teaching of sports coaching modules at the University.

Our Sports Coaching MRes degree course will help you in working on a self-directed program of research, supported by a London Met lecturer who is an expert in the field.

This degree will give you the opportunity to research areas such as communication techniques in contemporary coaching, holistic coaching, use of reflective practice to enhance the coaching process, modern day concepts of cheating in sport, sexual differences and transgender issues in sport. Your degree will usually focus on one of these areas but we welcome cross-discipline research projects.

Admission requirements

  • a minimum upper second-class degree in the same relevant subject area as your MRes project topic
