About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2022

This course has been designed for those who have a background and experience in coaching and leadership, who aspire to develop an advanced skillset and work in the sports or outdoor (land and water-based) industries. There is a particular emphasis on sport, outdoor adventure and yachting, with a choice of two specialist pathways.

Your core modules will develop both theoretical and applied skills in sports and outdoor coaching, where you will analyse the coaching process and utilise advanced techniques on a range of athletes, with varying degrees of proficiency and expectation.

You will also be able to choose modules from either the Sports Development Pathway, or the Outdoor Pathway, which focus on relevant skills and issues within each discipline. This will enable you to focus on a more specific field of your choosing, and gain the specialist skills that employers in those sectors seek.

If you are looking for a chance to combine a passion football with studying for a degree, UCSD is pleased to offer the Torquay United Football Development programme in partnership with Pro:Direct Academy Devon. For more information please contact Ben Roper, programme coordinator at [email protected]
