Subject

Sports coaching

f you love sport and want to help others get the most out of their abilities and talents, then this course, which combines formal learning with practical application, is ideal for you. You’ll learn the skills needed to become an inspiring, motivating coach as well as how to design a training programme and analyse performance. You could end up mentoring top athletes or inspiring schoolchildren – we’ll help you to follow the coaching path that excites you most.

The coaches we help develop have a fine reputation, especially because they have already gained proper experience before they graduate.

So, after your three years with us, you’ll be well placed to find employment, with the latest statistics showing that 90 per cent of our graduates are either in work or involved in further study within six months of graduating. Much of that is down to UEL's growing reputation as a hotbed of sporting excellence.

This programme is delivered in collaboration with Premier League club West Ham United's Foundation.

One of the fastest growing subjects in the country, the number of sports science graduates went from under 3,000 in 2003 to over 10,000 in 2013. Numbers have fallen slightly since 2015, but we still have over 9,000 graduates in the subject. However, the good news is the country's appetite for good health and fitness - and the adaptability of graduates in the subject - means that sports science grads are less likely than average to be out of work. Sports science graduates, not surprisingly, tend to get jobs in sport, fitness and health - coaching and teaching especially - but they're found all over the economy. Management and business are also popular options for graduates from this subject — and sports science graduates are particularly found where drive, determination and physical fitness are an advantage.
