The MSc Advanced Coaching in Strength and Conditioning course from University of South Wales is taught by an expert team of industry professionals including Ian Jeffreys, the world-leading professor in strength and conditioning.
Effective coaching in strength and conditioning is about far more than sets and reps. It is about building a performance environment, developing relationships with athletes and with other members of the performance team. It is about leadership, management, reflection, teaching, motivating; yet few courses cover these critical components.
This strength and conditioning postgraduate course is different. Instead of focussing on what to do, we focus on how it is done, with the coach firmly in the centre. Every module has been designed after extensive consultation with coaches and based around the reality of the performance ensuring you are prepared for what the industry will throw at you.
The Advanced Coaching in Strength and Conditioning course can be studied full time over a year or part time over two years. The following modules will be studied. Each has 20 credits with a final applied strength and conditioning solution carrying 60 credits. Part time students can distribute these modules over two years.
Each module is delivered in a blended format supported by an initial week long induction and two further week long residential blocks during the course.
The MSc Advanced Coaching in Strength and Conditioning aimed at people wishing to pursue a career in the coaching of strength and conditioning or anyone wishing to pursue a career as a coach in the fitness industry. It is ideal for graduates from strength and conditioning degrees or wider sport science degrees. It is also designed to cater for experienced coaches or personal trainers looking to study at Masters level.
Career options for graduates include strength and conditioning coach, personal trainer, fitness industry coach and high performance coach.
