The course will push you to be a confident and creative communicator in addition to developing and then applying your leadership, business and research skills within a sport development setting.

In the foundation year, you build your Sport Development with Coaching interest and knowledge alongside developing your academic skills.

This will be via tasks set for you to undertake in the module seminars or in your independent study time.
