Course info


This course has a strong practice-based element, which means you'll develop the skills you need to pursue a leadership role in the field.

Theoretical content is available online, so you won't have to attend University every week. You'll be able to apply your learning to your job and use case studies from your current area of practice. Our staff are experts in the field of strength and conditioning and they often work in partnership with professional sports teams and individual athletes.

This was the first postgraduate programme in Europe to receive international recognition through the NSCA Education Recognition Program (ERP).

You will:

  • Gain a higher degree that will qualify you for a lead role in strength and conditioning
  • Develop the ability to critically evaluate the scientific principles and theories of athletic screening, and a clear understanding of the science behind performance measurement
  • Develop a critical understanding of the current scientific principles, concepts and theories of strength and conditioning and its real life application
  • Undertake an in-depth, evidence based exploration of a key area relevant to your own practice

This course is available both part-time and full-time and is delivered via a blended learning approach, which includes:

Workshops (three days per module, per semester)

These are interactive, discursive, reflective, participatory, collaborative and practice related sessions that employ a variety of teaching and learning methods. As the course progresses these will become progressively more student-led, with you presenting case studies for peer and tutor review.

Individual scholarly activity

Self-directed learning, personal reflection, practice-based application and reflection, including peer and tutor review.

Distance learning resources

Delivery of supporting resources such as study guides and lecture material online. Facilitated group work, including tutor and peer evaluation, are a key component of this course.

Personal tutor and peer support

To provide an academic, practice-based and personal support mechanism alongside facilitated networking.


This course has been developed to include the key competencies identified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and the United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning association (UKSCA).



This course is aimed at a wide range of sports professionals including sports scientist graduates, chiropractors, osteopaths, strength and conditioning coaches, physiotherapists, sports therapists, sports rehabilitators, sport medicine physicians and physical education teachers.

This course has been developed to be accessible to individuals already working within the field of strength and conditioning, or those that are working towards full-time employment within the field. It is essential that you have access to athletes so that you can effectively evaluate their training and performance, and implement appropriate interventions as this forms part of the assessments for some modules.
