Our sports coaching and development programme is designed to provide students with the skills, experiences and networks that will establish our graduates at the forefront of sport coaching and development practice. The programme is rooted in applied practice by linking theory to practice and provides many opportunities for students to apply their skills in real world contexts across a range of contexts both in the UK and abroad.
The course has been designed to allow students to choose options that reflect their personal interests and aspirations and allow flexibility between Sports Coaching and Development and Sports Coaching and Performance.
Our focus is on learning not testing, therefore we have no formal examinations but an emphasis on developing independent, resourceful, problems solving coaches who have developed transferable skills that can be applied across many contexts.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
