About this course

Benefit from a program designed by elite coaches, expert academics and world leading researchers in this unique and engaging program, offering the latest and most innovative theory and practice in sports coaching.

This 16 unit coursework program is designed for current or aspiring coaches with an approved bachelor honours degree in the same discipline, looking to upgrade their qualifications.

During the program, you'll engage in learning experiences that promote and encourage extensive analysis and critical reflection on your current coaching practices and contexts. You'll also develop expertise and knowledge in examining and enhancing both athletic and coaching performance across bio-physical (e.g. recovery, program management, rate limiters) and socio-cultural (e.g. quality coaching practices, emotional regulation, and cultures of excellence) domains.

Several courses you'll undertake use practical, work-based learning approaches that will allow you to apply your studies directly to your coaching practice. Authentic, directly relevant, and highly individualised content and learning experiences can be tailored to your individual circumstances.

You'll graduate with an internationally recognised qualification that will prepare you for advanced coaching roles with high-performance athletes and sporting teams.
