The course is aimed at students who have undertaken a sports science, sports coaching or related undergraduate degree and who wish to continue their studies and progress to working within elite athletics.
The course aims to facilitate accreditation with the UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) through experiential learning on the professional enquiry placement module and key core modules such as practical applications to performance training, strength and rehabilitation science and effective coaching.
The University of Brighton’s sport and exercise laboratories at the Eastbourne campus, where the course is based, are accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES). There are also extensive fitness and sport facilities on site including a new teaching and research gym.
The course leader, Flo Pietzsch, was a strength and conditioning coach with the Lawn Tennis Association and at the English Institute of Sport. He is an accredited member of UKSCA and has advised and worked with UKSCA on curriculum development on their recent coaching science content.
Areas of study
The course offers varied content that brings together strength and conditioning, and applied physiology.
The University of Brighton is unique in offering Effective Coaching as a core module. This module is aligned with curriculum guidance from UKSCA, the national governing body.
The professional enquiry module is also compulsory and provides the opportunity to undertake practical experience in a work environment and gain invaluable first-hand knowledge. It is designed to help you engage with the process of planning and delivering expertise in practice, and to reflect upon and take steps to improve your academic, personal and professional skills. Opportunities exist with a range of organisations whom we partner with.
Employment prospects for graduates are extremely good. The strength and conditioning industry has expanded considerably and many professional sports organisations employ strength and conditioning coaches. This degree is specifically designed to provide the necessary skills and knowledge bases to undertake such a role.
Located on England’s beautiful south coast, the University of Brighton is a busy multi-campus university with a diverse body of over 3,800 postgraduate students.
The university offers over 200 postgraduate courses, many accredited by professional bodies, and most providing flexible study options so that students can balance their studies with other commitments.
For students in need of additional financial support, there is a range of scholarships and bursaries available to UK, EU and international students.
University of Brighton students on Postgraduate Search say:
“Very practical and useful advice and classroom tools being given, good preparation for NQT and training year.”
“It is a very different university experience being a part-time MA student, but so far I have really enjoyed it.
