Sports Coaching Science with Management Studies PgCert/PgDip/MSc
Coaching examines the scientific foundation of sports performance, giving you the opportunity to explore a range of performance-related subjects. At Kingston University we believe that theoretical knowledge should be underpinned by a strong practical component and therefore students are encouraged to gain experience in the laboratory and the field in both structured and independent sessions.
This is complemented with a knowledge of management studies, covering the fundamentals of management theory.
