BSc (Hons) Coaching (Sports Performance and Development) (Top-up) Level 6
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 Sport 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. For more information please contact Ben Roper, programme coordinator at [email protected].
- We consider a variety of qualifications and relevant experience, and each application is assessed on its own merit.
Each module is worth a specified number of credits: you take a combination of compulsory (and if available optional modules) enabling you to cover key subject knowledge while developing your own interests. For full time students a total of 120 credits will be studied in each academic year. In the majority of cases this will consist of 6 modules. For part time students it will depend on the intensity of your studies.

"I will really miss my college days and from the beginning the tutor, Al, has been so supportive. From someone who has not completed anything academic in over 20 years, this course was a step in the right direction for me. I have learnt so much from the group of people, different organisations, but mostly from Al who has a wealth of HR knowledge. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Al and she will always go out of her way to support and guide you in the right direction".
