Course content

Our Sports Coaching MRes degree course will help you in working on a self-directed programme of research, supported by a London Met lecturer who is an expert in the field.

This degree will give you the opportunity to research areas such as communication techniques in contemporary coaching, holistic coaching, use of reflective practice to enhance the coaching process, modern day concepts of cheating in sport, sexual differences and transgender issues in sport. Your degree will usually focus on one of these areas but we welcome cross-discipline research projects.

Your supervisor will be able to advise you on career development and the relevant professional bodies to help support progression in your chosen field. You will be encouraged and supported to attend at least one relevant conference and produce at least one publishable paper.
