About the courseThe Sport Performance Analysis degree is an applied sport science programme that focuses on the understanding, improvement and analysis of performance in sport. The curriculum progressively develops your knowledge of tactical analysis, measuring technical effectiveness, and specific technique analysis within actual sporting performance using a range of modern techniques and technology. In addition, you will be introduced to behavioural analysis of coach and athletes, and the application of athlete tracking techniques. The core modules in performance analysis are complemented and supplemented by modules drawn from relevant areas of coaching, pedagogy and sport and exercise science. These elements give the course a unique flavour that allow you to understand the theoretical principles and applied process skills that underpin performance analysis. You will be given many opportunities to develop your practical and contextual knowledge in training, coaching and performance that will allow you to evaluate and modify your own professional practice as an analyst and that of performers and coaches in a range of sports. It will also enable you to develop the specific, vocational skill set necessary to embark on a career in performance analysis.Placement year Not Available
