Overview

On the Strength and Conditioning program at Leeds Trinity University, you’ll work towards the key requirements for strength and conditioning coaches – a degree in sport and exercise sciences that will help you develop the knowledge you’ll need to become accredited by the UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA).

You’ll study the core components of sport and exercise sciences, including psychology, physiology, biomechanics, and research methods. But unlike other sport and exercise sciences courses, you’ll also learn the practical techniques required to become a strength and conditioning coach.

You’ll explore a range of theories and concepts, but most importantly, you’ll develop key laboratory skills in a range of disciplines in order to improve the performance of athletes.

Putting theory into practice, you’ll complete two professional work placements. You can complete your placements in the UK or abroad, and you’ll have the opportunity to volunteer or study abroad as part of your degree.

You’ll also have access to excellent facilities and equipment, including our specialist Strength and Conditioning Suite.

Graduate Opportunities 

The students have also been successful within the business and marketing sector, proving that the course provides you with valuable transferable skills to work in a wide range of areas.
