Why choose this course?

 

The Football Coaching and the Performance Specialist degree is an innovative programme which integrates football coaching awards into an academic course.

Students on the programme will develop practical coaching skills in addition to developing an understanding of the application of sport science (physiology, psychology, performance analysis) and the social context of the sport of football.

 

Students on the programme will work towards the Football Association of Wales Level 1 (Leaders) Level 2 (FAW C) and Level 3 (UEFA B) coaching Licenses. Students completing the programme will develop the skill to work with youth and senior football teams at grassroots and a high performance level.
