If you hold a coaching-related foundation degree or equivalent qualification, the innovative Sports Coaching top-up programme allows you to obtain a BA (Hons) degree in one year. You’ll explore the coaching process in a range of applied contexts including community, grassroots, elite, international and disability sports. The course is flexible – as well as compulsory modules, options are available that allow you to build knowledge, skills and understanding of the areas that really interest you. And throughout the year, you’ll develop employability skills through both your assignments and the work experience opportunities open to you.

*Tuition Fees are per year unless otherwise stated.

You can find regulations and policies relating to student life at The University of Central Lancashire on our Student Contract page.
For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course 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.
