Overview

The Sports Coaching and Physical Education (Hons) course at Anglia Ruskin University will teach you the most important aspects of sports coaching and physical education. These essential elements include sport development, applied coaching pedagogy (how people teach and learn), athlete development, physiology and psychology. You’ll learn how to apply all of this knowledge and as a result, help make you more effective in teaching, coaching or other broader areas of sport development. 

Our modules cover theoretical and practical approaches to coaching and physical education. Put these together and you’ll be able to operate ethically, safely, and confidently when working independently or as a team member.

To do this, you’ll use our fantastic facilities which include exercise testing and multipurpose human movement  laboratories with its specialist equipment including notational analysis software,  heart-rate monitors, GPS, breath-by-breath oxygen-analysis systems and accelerometers along with our strength and conditioning suite.

Careers

You’ll be able to choose from a wide range of careers once you graduate. These might include teaching (school/college), coaching (community level or performance), performance analysis, physical training, sport development, and the wider health, fitness and leisure industry.

We have links with many sports organisations, and you’ll have the opportunity to do research projects with them while you’re studying. This offers an early insight into the world of employment, and keeps you up-to-date with who’s hiring. While you’re studying, we also encourage you to become a student member of UK Coaching, to keep up with the opportunities in the sector.
