About the job

The Sports Coach is a guide to the changes in behaviour needed to help a person achieve their fitness goals. A coach tailors activities both in their physical and mental dimensions to the person. They work with either individuals, groups, or populations, in a sports hall, at home, in public areas or in companies.

The Programme of Study


3 years - 180 credits

The Bachelor in Sports Coaching uses the very latest in teaching techniques throughout its courses. It is therefore different to a traditional programme in which students begin by following a large number of theory classes in block 1 before following more practical courses in blocks 2 and 3.

The programme has 5 strands:

  • The physiological and biomechanical determinants of health and physical condition;
  • Health communication and the relationship with the person whose goal is change;
  • Managing a sports organisation;
  • Coaching in practice;
  • Project management and practice ‘in the field’.

In each of these strands, you’ll follow a series of successive teaching units and undertake an immersion programme of 4 to 6 weeks during which you’ll undertake a real project from start to finish. The project may be an individual or group project and is supervised by a coach.
