Course Overview

The Doctorate in Sport Coaching aims to equip practitioners and related scholars with an appreciation of the symbiotic and synergetic relationship between theory and practice. As opposed to a distinct research focus characteristic of a traditional PhD, the amended emphasis of the DSC lies in practice as both the recipient and generator of research. The DSC arises from a demand for high-level, leading-edge knowledge and skills training, coupled with increasing the use and exploitation of coaching research in practice. It offers a unique opportunity for professional and career development, focusing on applied and experiential learning within a community of practice.
